Good day to all you Gurus,
Running XP Home SP2 with AMD Athlon 3200+ and 2 GB Ram.
I had a problem where I could not open any programme whether I clicked on a Desk To Shortcut or used the Start Menu.
I sent it away to a repair shop, they brought it back saying that everything was ok but it is not.
If I click on a shortcut it does not open the programme but puts a duplicate shortcut on the Desk Top. If I open Internet Explorer  from the Start Menu I get the message "has to close" and sometimes get a message about Dr Marten [whatever that is].
Next problem. I had to put in all the serial numbers for all Adobe programmes but when I tried to put in the serial number for Adobe Audition it tells me that it is an invalid number. I went in to Control Panel>Ad d/Remove programmes there are TWO listings for Audition. I tried to uninstall them but cannot.
I got in touch with the company that did the repair for me but all they want to do is a complete reinstall of Windows and charge me again which I am reluctant to let them do as they will not do it for free even though they told me that the machine was repaired.
I would appreciate any advice that you can give me.
