unresponsive computer, not locked up


Recommended Posts

I removed the XP Defender Pro virus or malware or whatever you call it. Now my computer will start up normal and I can run programs such as msconfig, regedit, notepad to name a few but the first time I try to open any program stored under C:\Program Files the computer becomes unresponsive. The mouse changes to an hourglass as if it's working but then goes back to a mouse pointer. I can move the pointer around so the puter is not locked up but no programs will start, not even the progams that I could run before. Also I can shut offf and restart puter before attempting to run a program files program but after trying to run any program under program files I cannot even shut down the puter normal, the only way to shut it down is to hold in the power button until it shuts down. I get the same results any time I click on the My Networks icon on the desktop. I'm almost bald already so any help before I pull out the rest of my hair would be greatly appreciated.
