starting a few days ago i cannot open any folders on my computer (my computer, any desktop folders, control panel, search computer, etc). i will double click the icon and the folder will come up for a second, the desktop will go blank and then the folder will disappear. i tried to search google for a solution, but just found links to download antispyware and i downloaded the microsoft antispyware beta 1. i ran that and it found like 26 different things on my computer (including shop at home select which i've had for some time now) so i deleted all of those and my folders worked for a short time, but after restarted my computer my folders haven't worked since.

please help ):

Hi as well as running antispy, you want to run an antivirus, not nortons, you can download some free ones from the web, two good ones are avast, and avg.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit

Besides doing the virus and spyware scans, also defragment your HD. With bigger drive sizes and huge files that we keep storin and deleting from the system, the drive tends to get fragmented sooner than we realise..and then blue screens, crashes, freezeups become frequent.
