i cant open anything

June 2, 2010 at 14:43:44
Specs: Windows 2000
When I click any icons or go to "start" and any program there, they have all changed into the same icon and they wont work . i have to click the properties for each one then go to the main folder where they are located to open them. Ive read some posts on this, but most are old and I wanted to know if there was something new.

Can you be more specific about the issue you are facing with?
How long have been facing this? Was it after bringing any changes in your machine (eg: Installing any 3rd party softwares)?

Primarily scan your machine with Avast free addition in safe mode. And then with Malwarebytes application (Still in safe mode)

PS: All the way I was wondering to know.. why are you still using Windows 2000. Why don't you upgrade it to WIndows XP, Vista or 7?

Thank you :)
