Try a windows install; like the fix install option. Some files may be missing.
agurri, he meant do the install option off of the cd and it will replace files that are corrupt or missing. everything else should remain intact.

Try doing a system restore before doing a repair of xp. Much easier. Can't find it on the strat menu. I must have moved mine. Anyway first create a shortcut to it. Right click on the desktop/new/shorcut. Paste this in....%SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
Now open system restore & choose 'restore my computer to an earlier time'. Choose one that is not too old to begin with.

Sorry about the shortcut stuff. Mabe it might be in your start menu somewhere.

You can find some brief instructions here .

Pick the restore point that you think was created before you had the problem.

Just in case you'd like some more info on system restore - what it does and how it works - you can look here .

Ok, I'm sorry of the non-reply.... I didn't do the restore system because I think the problem has always been there since I resintall Windows in July.... Is there any way we could actifve the Task Manager, like puting it on/off ??? In the control panel/administrative tools/ services , the Task Manager is not even there.....

Those symptoms sound familiar. There was a woman at work who opened a screen saver (it really wasn't) recently that was emailed from someone and it caused the symptoms you describe. I'll bet you can't run regedit either. Not sure what was done with her PC since then.

Anyway, did you download something questionable recently?
