i dunno i turned off computer..went to best buy to get my bro a bday gift and came back turned it on and now i cant do anything...so now im stuck..it wasnt this bad at first i got into the computer and was able to use the stuff for like 10 minutes, my antivirus was down, the virus dictionary thingy went down to a 1.0 out of 10...so i brought it back up in safe mode, instead the safemode didnt work and brought it up into normal mode andnow i dont see any of the buttons all i see is my background...so...im stuck

im bringing my internet explorer up as that 1 task i can use :-/

i dont believe i can do file>open on this either because i tried it before and it starts ''not responding'' so i had to do ctrl+alt+del again and re-bring up my internet explorer

i dont really feel like reformatting but if its what im going to haveto dothen thats what ill do
