I'm not real sure how long ago it happened, but all my explorer-based programs (IE, My Docs, even Control Panel) are dead. They pretend like they're going to open, then the desktop goes clean (no icons or start bar), then nothing. No errors, just like I never tried to open the program.

I've run Spybot and a full-system scan with Live-Updated Norton AV, and they returned nada. Here's my HiJackThis log...

I'm running Win XP with SP2 on a Pavilion ze4400, 1.8 Gig AMD.

I realize I have some programs running from that... one... program... but I don't think they're causing it.

I saw those MyWay bar things, and I don't know what those are. Any ideas? Also, if I delete the Global Startup stuff, does that just kill it in the registry so I don't have to empty my bin every time I restart? Cause that would be super. Thanks!
