I have been using XP for some time now. I have reinstalled XP on my Dell countless times:) Whatever problems I had would be gone with a fresh copy of XP.
2 days ago I had 2 reinstall it again. After reinstalling brand new XP for the first time I noticed something wasn't right. When I open My Computer, double click on C Drive, it opens in another window. I went on line and found a fix for that (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell). That didn't help.
When I open My Computer, right click on C Drive, instead of showing me the options-Open, Explore, Search----it shows me-Autoplay, 'o^$*^(0)(weird numbers), Search, Explore. Now, I know those weird numbers after Autoplay shouldn't be there. After double clicking on C drive one time in starts to behave normal. After sometime when I open My Computer, there is a windows icon on the new window, after that I cannot do anything. Cannot open or close any folder. Cannot even restart the computer.
If I still have a virus in a fresh reinstalled XP, how can I delete it?
After another 10-15 minutes a warning sign comes up saying-REG.exe open files are currupt and need 2 close down.
Can any one please help me with this. I have never in my 7 years of working with XP had this weird problems.
Thank you so much!
