It does not give an error message, just the icon of the error but the dialogue box is blank.
I think I may have discovered my problem. Apparently the virus makes files attributes change to hidden (which I undid), but it also hides files in the temp folder and I'm pretty sure I deleted the files in the temp folder since this happened--I know it's dumb, and I did system restore which doesn't fix anything. Anyway, it's possible some important system files were deleted.
Also, under the boot tab in msconfig in the screen that should say Windows Vista, it is totally blank.
Also, it's a Dell Inspiron 530
