Had a constant popup "warning - potential spyware operation" and tried to fix it with Spybot. Now I am no longer able to access any programs in WIN XP or run IE. I can run the computer in safe mode to access files, etc. Using another computer to start this thread so I can begin to try and at least look into the solution. I see other threads with similar problems but not one where the computer is lock out in WIN XP mode. Any suggestions on where to start would be much appreciated.
