Can't drag and drop or copy and paste

From what I believe are the after-effects of a virus, I am no longer able to drag and drop on my desktop or copy and paste. There are also a number of control panel icons that no longer work. I have made sure that the appropriate settings are turned on to allow these actions and I think there may be some corrupt files in Windows (I have 2000 pro).

A couple of months ago someone posted a reply to an ActiveX problem that involved going to start > run and typing something that would check for any missing/corrupt files in Windows (it then prompts you to insert the Windows CD). This post has since been removed and, of course, I didn't write it down.

If anyone knows what needs to be typed in the run box, I would GREATLY appreciate it -- I would love to avoid having to re-install.

Best,
Steve

Get a legit Windows 2000 pro CD and put it in your primary CD-Rom drive, then run the following:

sfc /scannow

replace all files it prompts you to reinstall.

Also make sure you have the latest service pack (Service Pack 4), and if you can, download it from another PC, burn it on CD and install it over your copy of Windows 2000 Pro that is corrupted. That would fix corrupted files too.
