    Hello All,

    My PC was showing strange errors when I started it after a power failure. CHKDISK ran and located and fixed many files. However I was getting many errors such as ATL.dll missing, mozilla firefox crashed and wont reopen again. Google toolbar notifier error saying it is missing. I cant access Network connections even though Internet is working albeit at a snail's pace. I searched on the forum and found a dll forum which talked about the same error msg i was getting. I downloaded rootrepeal and ran the scan which turned out to be clean. However these error messages continue. I am not getting reading on some windows where there are no words like the properties page on My computer. All I see is name of my computer and a number. I cant even see the different tabs which normally I see under it. However i can click on these blank things. Currently running MCAFEE scan and if nothing found , read in some threads that a HIjackthis scan might be useful as well.

    PLz someone help me. I have an exam in 2 days and have to study online but the PC as slow as it is wont let me work properly.

    Hi a power failure can do exactly as you explain.
    Try a System file checker - it may help.
    Start>run>type
    sfc /scannow

    You will need the Xp install Cd

    If not - you may need to do a Repair Install.
