Win98se cannot open desktop icons

  mouse1 19:33 27 Feb 2005

Hi,using win98se,on startup numbers lock comes on and if I let it all load clicking on icons does nothing and numbers lock will not turn off.Numbers lock will turn off during startup and on one occasion everything worked,then it was back to lockup no matter what I did!! Have I got a virus or is a bit of Windows missing?

SCANREG /RESTORE press enter key and put one of the older dates back if they go back far enough and then restart comp
