    Hi,
    When I open My Computer and Control Panel, there is nothing displayed. Although at the button bar it says X objects are there and X objects are hidden. But I can't see nothing =(
    Also, my System Restore won't open. When I clicked on System Restore. There was some busy signal, then nothing open up....
    Please help. Thanks

    try the on-line virus scan via the link below.

    You might try to boot to Safe Mode, after the on-line virus scan, and try System Restore from there.

    ***

    You need to be running a firewall like free Sygate from http://download.com - type, sygate, in the Search box, you must be on-line to register Sygate, that is if you're not using a firewalled Router on a Network or, have another third-party firewall like Sygate installed, to protect you and the Internet community from hackers, spammers and terrorist from using your computer for their own illicit needs while you're on-line?

    Which link? I tried to use the Panda On-line Virus Scan, but there was error message that said
    "An error has occurred downloading Panda ActiveScan. Please repeat the process. If the error occurs again, restart your system and try again"
    ...

    Also, in safe mode, the system restore won't open up either.. =(
    Thanks.

    There are some baddies which will prevent you from connecting to Firewall, Anti-Virus and Security web sites.

    Try this.

    See if you can do a search for a hosts file and open it with Notepad.

    Copy and paste what it shows.

    Hosts is located in the C:\windows\ folder.
