Cant open any files, My Computer...

February 17, 2005 at 10:20:33
Specs: Windows XP Pro w/SP2, Athlon XP 2200+ w/ 448 MB

I had a virus through AOL IM (more discussion can be seen on the following forum: and I fixed it by deleting DrWEBAV.exe and using an AIM fix that was posted in the forum. Since fixing this problem, I no cannot open any file on the computer. I can run task manager and IE, but My computer will not open.

I have run adaware, SpybotS&D and HijackThis (i can post the log file if anyone thinks it will help) as wells as the antivirus scanner on the computer and McAfee's Stinger Virus fixer. I have no idea what is going on and would greatly appreciate some help.

I tried using the that exe file repair, but I am still unable to open anything off my desktop or throught the start menu. I can open programs like Word and then navigate through it to files in my documents and other places, but that is it.

Anyone please have suggestions?
