Right I will try to be as accurate as possible the scenario is
I was on the net 1st April computer froze and I rebooted then found that Firefox or IE would not display any pages.
Pinged Google and all was fine, and then did a network diagnostic and windows reported a 12152 error.
I disabled Zone alarm and used windows fire wall and everything was fine.
then I ran all the malware programs I know off and anti spyware and then ran a virus check no virus but two items of malware
everything seemed fine until I then switched to my wife's account and nothing would work. start button not working no processes in task manager short cuts missing etc
reboot computer and whichever account you first log on to works the other does not
Have also done a repair of window using my slipstream disc but no joy still the same.
Have also tried deleting account and putting them back on
Before I do a Clean install and even maybe wipe the hard drive can anybody help
ps. I have also done your check for cornficker and its fine, don't know how to find what virus you have
forgot to mention have tried system restore to no avail oh and it's running xp
