The clowns at the office restored the CPU and didn't put any anti- virus/spyware on it, so naturally, it became unusable after a few days.

I have managed to clean it almost completely using Avast, Spybot, and AVG.


Both IE7 and FF are not displaying any background color. There are also other minor issues which are tough to put a finger on without having another operational CPU to compare it to.

This is more than a cosmetic issue; google docs functions poorly- many features don't work, such as cut/paste.

I have uninstalled FF twice- didn't help

I'm ASSuming that a windows(XP SP2) application common to both browsers has been corrupted.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome to Bleeping Computer DrunkUncas. :thumbsup:

For the Firefox issues, have a look at these two articles: Web Site Colors are Wrong and Clipboard Not Working.

The second option involves modifying the Registry, so be sure to back it up and know how to restore it should a problem occur.
