    I am having continuing problems accessing files from the Windows XP Home start menu. On my start menu, clicking on anthing from “my documents”down to “run”, causes the computer to totally freeze after a Dr. Watson message.. I can access all of the programs on the start menu. Files which have shortcuts on the Desktop can be accessed. I can go into Word, and access files through there. I can’t get into My Computer and Control Panel without freezing the computer. I have run Spybot and AdAware and it has cleaned most of the Adware. PC-cillin has been run. I can access the internet. Attempting to run HiJack freezes the computer.

    Any suggestions??
