    Every time I click MS paint, an hourglass pops up and nothing happens. Task manager isn't even clickable. I'm suspecting some sort of registry problem/dll files in need of repair, but I have found some trojans/viruses in my computer recently that could be the culprit.

    Here's a hijackthis log:

    Are there any free programs that fix registry problems for you? If not, is there anything I can do manually to fix the problem?

    Thank you.

    you could try a system restore or a system repair from the install cd (if you have one)
