As of lately, pretty much nothing on my computer works anymore. When attempting to run a program, I get a dialog box which states "____ has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I'm running Windows XP, and programs such as Paint, IE, Windows Explorer, and MSN 7.5 won't open. (Fun, eh?)

I currently do not have an XP disk, so if there is a way to solve this problem without it (heh) please let me know. Otherwise, I guess I'll go get one, but let me know what I should do after that.

Your help is greatly appreciated. :tazz:

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
