I just read my previous post, and I realized that you guys probably need some more information. Well, after browsing the BleepingComputer forums, I realized "Hey, I need to run a 'spy' program to see if my computer has been infected with Malware or viruses. So... I went to download a program from the HJT forums. When trying to run this downloaded program, a screen popped up on my CPU and it said "Open With" on the top bar and had a list of "recommended programs". So I tried to open up a couple of other programs that had already been installed on my CPU. These programs that I used not three hours ago are doing the same thing. And when I put in a game in my CD Drive, it wouldn't open up nor use "Auto-Play" which this specific game usually does when I put in into the drive. Something is obviously wrong, I just have NO CLUE how to even approach this problem aside from posting here in hopes that one of you nice people might have a clue as to what I need to do. Another example of the problem I'm having is... I can open up my control panel but when I click on just about every icon within the folder, a prompt pops up and says: "C:\WINDOWS\System32\rundll32.exe Application not found." or when I click on the "Help and Support" link on the left hand side of the Contro Panel is says: "helpctr.exe Application not found."
I'm seriously in tears over this because I need this computer badly! Any help would be appreciated!?
