Big PC Prob


Big PC Prob

Hello all.

I tried to install Norton Antivirus 2003 9.0v last night and all seemed to be going well until my PC decided to take a turn for the worse...

Once it had finished installing, my desktop went back to the way it was when I had first created different profiles for the family, so all my customisable icons had gone...not such a major problem I thought....

Then I tried to open up Word, but I got an error message saying the file could not be opened because the program did not exist anymore :? Other programs opened up fine, it was just Word...

Then(!) it seemed like everything had gone back to its default settings, such as:

1) Having to 'unhide' the program folders when looking through my computer
2) Enterting Information (personal/preferences) into Windows Media Player before being able to use it

These aren't that bad but the biggest problem is the Internet. My PC assumes I haven't got an Internet connection and brings up the wizard everytime I try to open up an Internet Explorer page and I have no idea what to do since everything is already installed. I am only able to type this message since I am using Kazaa Lite's web browser, not windows. I can't even go to the query page on here since it tries to bring up a separate IE window and therefore the wizard...

Sorry for the long post, just I am running out of ideas! Help would be appreciated.

Thanks. Wink
