The registration page said to introduce myself, so here's the basic info: I'm too old to understand computers, too dumb to know even the most basic things, yet I have to use them (like everyone else) so I get into trouble a lot! Several weeks ago I had a bad scare due to an oddity of Norton/Symantec (it filled my entire hard drive with the same 1 meg warning filed into Quarantine 27,000 times), today I've lost some basic functionality in Windows, and so I thought it was time to consult somebody who knows this stuff. Hopefully I can get this sorted out before my "significant other" gets back from her Christmas vacation!

We will try to help you.
Post separately about your functionality loss in the forum for whatever Windows version you are using. It will be important to list precisely what functionality you have suddenly lost, and any "odd" events that you have seen today.
Some simple steps you might take:
1. Run your anti-virus as well as any spyware applications you might have (Ad-AwareSE, for example) and see what they find.
2. Run scandisk
3. Have you defragged recently?
4. Have you installed any new programs or updates/patches very recently?

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
