Hi Trapper,
No, I've not tried safe mode.   I will when I get home.
I don't have an emergency start up disk.   
I don't have Norton's Disk Doctor.
I do run AVG daily and I do an update inquiry daily.   Each day AVG catches
a virus and it's always in a compressed file (zip) and I cannot identify the
individual file.   I've not yet killed the entire zip file.   I will expand
the files into a temp folder and run avg and then kill the individual file.
 
My computer runs ok, except I cannot use Internet Explorer nor Windows
Explorer (I understand they are related).   My software programs like
Quicken, MsWorks, Word, Outlook Express, etc work ok.
 
If I cannot find Windows XP disk, I'll have to go buy a new one.
 
As we speak, I am running F-prot in dos mode.   I'm looking forward to the
results.
 
Carl

Have you tried re-booting into safe mode??
Have you tried your emergency startup disk?
It's been awhile but I believe Norton's had something called Ndd ( Norton's
disk Doctor). It allowed for you to fix a drive sector by sector, and I
think it also has a virus program with it...
Isn't your avg catching any of the virus's? If it's upto date it should be.

Hi Martha,
Hi Guys,
 
Well I have a real problem.  My Windows xp, home edition will not restore
itself.   I went back and attempted restore on 4 different dates and none
would work.   I could only go back to January 25.    I looked again at the
error report for the "tech details" and it shows 62 files were affected.
 
I have some important tax records I cannot afford to lose.   Of course I
will send copies to the other computer on this network (it is working ok),
but I really would like to avoid a format.
 
It looks like I need a virus program to run from dos.   
 
Any suggestions?
 
Carl

Go to Start/Help and Support/Undo Changes to your computer with System
Restore.

If you are using Windows XP, try doing a System Restore on a date you know
IE was working ok.

Hey, when I installed Windows xp, did it make a backup copy of the setup
files on my harddrive?
 
I would go look but Explorer will not open.

Hi All,
 
I found my computer with a headache this morning.   I tried to open Internet
Explorer and it will not.   The error message is that iexplore.exe is
corrupt.   I tried to open Windows Explorer and get the same error message.
My other programs seem to be working ok, for now.
 
I tried run > sfc /scannow and the system asked me for my Windows XP cdrom
and I cannot find it.   I still have my receipt but no cdrom.
 
So, I copied iexplore.exe off a computer at work and then I tried using dos
to copy to c:\program files\Internet explorer and I keep getting the error
message shown below:
 
Of course, I don't know if that would even work, copying a good iexplore.exe
over the bad one.   I do have a good iexplore.exe on c:\ drive;   what if I
deleted the other one, would Windows pick up on the good one.
