    I dont know what did it, but suddenly I seem to be unable to open most of the items in the control panel including display, add remove programs, And system. It seems that all the ones that wont open are ones that open into a new window. I have been able to get them to open a few times, twice directly after doing a registy clean with Ontrack system Suite. I don't know if this will help but All I've installed recently is mem turbo, ontrack system Suite, and drivers for my digital camera. I tried a system restore but the one that went back the farthest wasn't far enough... Any Suggetions?

    On another note though Norton has been detecting Nimda Viruses on my computer every now and again and has been quarrantining them.

    Yes - It's worth doing an on-line scan every now and again - just to double check your own anti-virus software - it's surprising how often something can get through.

    Your symptoms do suggest a virus infection - it could be the blebla worm

    If it comes up clean do this :-

    If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

    Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

    Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/startuplist151.zip

    Download to any folder or your desktop
    Unzip the zipfile
    Double click the exe file
    go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

    Hi nineismine

    You do have spyware in there - d'load spybot and clean it out - see if that helps

    Please Download and install SpyBot,

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot14.exe

    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red
