Have you tried using System Restore or System Restore from a command prompt in Safe Mode to return to a previous state before your problems began?

Thnx for your reply. Yes tried system restore and tried to start in safe mode when i tried it has now came up windows root\system32\hal.dll missing or corrupt
I suspect that there may be a few files "missing or corrupt"
I just find it funny that it allows me into my desktop,move or delete files,watch w/media player surely it should not let me into my desktop. :thumbsup:

The missing hal.dll error message usually occurs when the boot.ini becomes corrupted or when a user is attempting to dual boot a computer.
