You might have a virus that may have taken over your pc, can you run anti virus?

Can you get into System Restore to go back to a point when it was working properly?

If necessary, press the "Windows key + R" to open the Run box, type in...


...and press Enter. This will open the normal System Restore window (assuming it is Windows XP).

Hi and thanks for the help.I have tried all of your suggestions,still the same.

I have Acronis installed,and was just about to use the saved image,when I remembered my PC has PC Angel.
I selected a non destructive install ,and it seems ok for now.

I did the usual google search,but was unable to find a solution,hence the request for help.

Has anyone else experienced this kind of problem?.
