HELP. As best as I can remember, this morning, while working on my pc, I accidentally allowed something through 'Zone Alarm'---at least I think I did. Since then, nothing is working properly. I am now in safe mode, and still nothing works. My add/remove programs list doesn't populate; Zone Alarm won't start; Anything I try to open freezes. I'm writing this on my wifes computer, as I can't get any access to anything. Is there anyway, anyhow to try and decipher what's going on? I should clarify. My system is Windows XP, my computer starts up but it takes at least 10 minutes before everything is loaded. Even in safe mode, it takes a loooong time. Opening my email program (Mozilla Thunderbird),also takes about 10 minutes just to open, and once it's open, it takes just as long to do anything. If you click on anything you want to do, there is no reaction for at least 5-10 minutes. This is slow beyond belief.
Can anyone help? Where do I get started in figuring this out? I'm desperate.
