I have two computers in my room, so luckily its not a huge deal.

But, my old computer, is a Gateway from like 1998 or so. It origionally had Windows 98, I installed Windows XP Professional over it(not a complete reinstallation). And it was working fine for a while, but one day I open 'My Documents', 'Internet Explorer', and 'My computer'. Each time I opened them, they would simply close, and the start menu bar would disapear then reapear for a second and would would go back to the way it was. I tried to reinstall Windows XP but I don't know what happened but it won't work. Something was messed up with my HD it said. So, I somewhat found ways around this by using Notepad and clicking file> open, and then set that browser to view 'All Files'. This helped me get around my computer. Then, I burned the installer for Firefox to a cd, and installed it. Now, I can use Firefox, and can somewhat get around my computer.

I want to know if there is a fix or something for this. I mean everytime I open and folder it closes. I tried ctrl+alt+delete and tried to end all unneccasary processes. I tried looking over the start up in my MSCONFIG list, and I am stumped. I even tried to install Norton, but it says it cannot find NAV.msi which IS on the CD, and it claims it is the incorrect file. But, then I tried NAV on another computer, and it worked fine.

Anyways... anyone have an suggestions? I might just buy a new HD if I have to, but for now, I want to try to find something... thanks

I was trying to install Norton Anti-Virus but it would not install. I then tried Kaspersky anti-virus, and it detected and deleted 11 viruses. This fixed my problem. Thanks for trying, but I figured it out on my own...
