IE and Control Panel

Tried to install Ghost Surf 5.5 on my laptop. Seemed to install but wouldnt take the correct unlock code and Desktop icons stopped functioning. I uninstalled it using Safe Mode but when I rebooted the Desktop had no icons or Taskbar. When I created another User Account this gave me a Desktop with Icons and Taskbar but not eveything works (Intenet Explorer wont open but Chrome and Firefox will - Control Panel opens but Add Remove Progs and Network Connections won't) Any idea what's going on ? Thanks

I don't suppose a system restore would help.or if you have the XP Disc run sfc /scannow you may be asked to install the XP disc to carry on.Or Vista disc whatever one.

After some correspondence with the Tenebril (GhostSurf) helpdesk I have managed to install it. Had to stop AVG, Defender and any other security items then get them started again after reboot. The New User Account is now fully working and I have de;eted my original corrupted one.
