I have only had my computer for 6 mths and I am having a whole lot of problems. It is P4 3g 512mb, xp home running firefox, adaware, spybot, norton. I have problems with firefox, internet connection, spybot, powerpoint and more.

I will start with the first problem I found just to keep things simple(or not??)
Often when I shut down I get a pop up which says "The program DDE Server Window is not responding. End now?" What is this program? Even when I don't get this pop up my comp takes a very long time to shut down. I run regular virus and adaware scans but nothing shows up.

I'm assuming that these problems did not always exist, so can you restore the system to a date when everything was okay?

I have tried system restore a number of times but it has not fixed the problem. I am now unable to restore to a point earlier than 1 month ago.

In that case then, pop in your Windows XP cd and do a Repair. If that does not work, you will have to reinstall Windows over itself. Although it should not affect your programs or data, always have a backup of your data when doing this.
