    I can't get into any folders, or even the control panel. Everything works fine in safe mode. I can click on a picture and it will open, I can search for a game and it will open, I can even launch config.sys or CMD. When I click on computer or any other folder, the folder appears and spins the search and just stays there. Could this be a registry key?

    So I assume this happens in normal mode under just one account? Are you an Administrator account on the machine? Can you make a new account Administrator and see if problems persist in new account?

    Can you run an SFC /SCANNOW from an ELEVATED command prompt and post the results?
