Hi cappac,
I run XP pro. i have deleted a load of programs in Add/Remove. I think thats what messed it up.

Eric: many thanks for that info. Owing to the fact that after I posted the problem on here things got worse and i couldnt even access my emails. Consequently I installed a brand new HDD and things are now great.
I will print out your advice and later on i will try to use it on the old HDD by installing it in a standby PC that i have.
Many Thanks
