I was originally on geekstogo.com as noret, but I had to reregister because my email seems to have lost the info from here. So now I am noret2. Same guy, same problem.

The same problem as before is that I can use my PC no problem, but Start does not get me on the web. To get on the web I have to use an icon. I can't access System Information or the other programs in Windows.


"My computer is working okay, to a point. It boots, shows icons, but I cannot use Start to get on the Internet. I have to use an icon to get on the web. Nor can I access the registry to a day ago to get around the problem. Comp working, but it's not supposed to be this way I think.

From System Tools it states, "Internet Explorer (No add-ons)
I noticed on the blue ball which has the white arroow in the right hand corner has fewer items there now.

It happened when I was on porn sites and clicked on the ads on the side.

I have Windows XP, one meg of Ram I think, can't get the sys info. Sys is near 10 years old I would guess, got the PC second hand. Been working great for a few years.

I use the free AVG anitviral software."
