Try booting into Safe Mood, using the secert Admin account called Administrator. Then try running System Restore. Also system restore wont get read of a virus. You could download AVG Free Edition and run it. See what comes up.

It means you dont. Trust me, it would planly have hp printed all over it (not as bad as dell but meh.) Like I said before try getting into safemode again and try accessing them. If not you could always re-install XP.

You will need a restore CD or your computer might have it built in. I dont know your make or model so lets see if someone else knows how to access the system recovery.

It's also possible that there is still infections left on your computer: infections which have caused this behaviour. Therefore, I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide. I realize you may have done some of this stuff, but it won't hurt to do it again.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
