For some reason when i try to open any program, like internet explorer or anything else, they won't open. Then when i press ctrl>alt>delete, they open. Why is this doing this? Can any one help me out, please? :tazz:

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, reboot when the bar goes

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system
