help me i have a windows XP professional computer and a very large problem with it. Whenever i try to open any programs (word,system restore, accessibility options, etc.) they come up in a bunch of computer gibberish words and at the top of the document it says "this program cannot be run in DOS mode.":confused: what is that! I have no idea what is going on and even when i try to download antivirus or start up my antivirus programs they appear in notepad, like the rest of the programs, and display the same error message. I also dont have the installation disk for the XP. If anyone can please help me.

:( Dylan
