I thought my PC was acting normal until I tried to connect the Svideo out to my TV (which I do Succesfuly from time to time). I conected the cord and pressed the Fn + F5 keys to change the display function and nothing happened, after several attemps I went to the control panel and tried to open the DISPLAY program and again nothing happened, then I went to my desktop and right clicked..clicked on properties and still nothing. Then I went back to control Panel and realized that none of the programs in the control panel screen want to open. I then went to START--RUN and typed "appwiz.cpl" hit enter and the "ADD & REMOVE PROGRAMS" program opened. with task manager open while I click on the DISPLAY progam (in CONTROL PANEL) i see that the process # inceases by 1 for a split second and then goes back to the original # of processes.
I am not sure what is happening, do I have a virus?

thank you in advance for any help
