View Full Version : trouble opening applications

18-07-2005, 01:43 AM
i am able to get on the internet (dsl) without any trouble and it works at
nearly full speed; i can also open word and excel. however, i cannot open
any third party applications, add/delete files does not open from control
panel (which does open); cannot restore system to earlier point - in regular
mode can't open system restore from start menu/programs, while in safe mode
it opens, goes through the initial steps then restarts and tells me that the
system could not be reset. the strange thing is that when i've had viruses
in the past, i had the most trouble with the internet, and could use most
applications (slowly). anyone have any ideas?
