A couple of questions...

1. Are you able, through System Restore, to restore back to a point before this started to happen?

2. Do you have a backup image of your System partition prior to this problem?

3. Do you have current, full, good backups of your data?

Hi Joan,

An interesting thought...

Do you know :

1. If this behavior with WEx is typical of a corrupt profile?

2. A Microsoft reference document with more in-depth info on corrupt profile behavior?

TiA

You may try running a check on the Windows System files. To check the System files proceed as follows: -

• Logon as an Administrator
• Click Start > Run
• In the Run dialog box type: sfc /scannow (note the space before the /)
• Click OK

You may need your Windows installation CD or the CD that was supplied with your PC.

After you have run sfc you should logon to Microsoft update and check for updates.

Those look like Windows updates caused a few...and you can uninstall those numbers in your Windows folder...they are in purple print at the beginning of the folder. I would also run XP repair as this looks like possible corruption caused by spyware removal.....
