    Multiple programs crash upon starting

    I use WINXP Media edition. Recently all of my third-party programs have begun
    to "encounter problems and need to be closed" upon startup. This includes
    firefox, trillian, filesharing programs, etc. In most cases I can move the
    error window and continue to use the program. I've tried every repair I can
    think of and it's time to ask for help from better men. Things I've already
    tried:

    Virus scan (Norton AV 2006)
    Ad-aware
    XP Repair Pro 2006
    All available Windows updates
    Uninstalling unneeded programs
    System Restore (back to before I encountered problems)
    A registry repair program

    I'd really hate to wipe the disk and start clean. Can anyone think of any
    other solutions?

    No. Delet partition, repartition and reformat the hard drive. Install
    Windows.
