My friend bought a computer less than a year ago with windows XP and a few programs installed. This computer seemed to work fine at the start but now certain things wont open such as 'help and support' rom the start menu and the search window for files or folders, does anybody know whats wrong with this computer? does it need formatted. Thanks

Try a repair type

sfc /scannow

in the run box and press enter windows will scan and replace missing /corrupt system files.

You may need the XP CD in the CDRom drive and it will take a while to scan.
