P: 164
Hi all

Am using WinXP and Internet Explorer 6.

I tried opening IE from quick launch toolbar. Once I clicked the icon, it asks for Open with and prompts for Internet Explorer.exe.

Whats the problem here. Though I selected that exe from that location still it asking for Open with.

But it opens If by double clicking the desktop short cut.

And all my exe files alos asks for openwith.

Like opera etc.,

If I tried opening Ms Word from start menu it shows an error that Application not found.

Whats the problem here? Are there any virus in my system? Am using Symantec 10.

Even I couldnt open Administrative tools, System Restore etc.,

Does the OS Crashed?

I run a dos command for system restore and restored to Restore Point. But I lost my data.

If it happens again how to resolve this without losing my data.

Thanks

I hpe your system got a virus and hopefully, they used to attacked the exe file. So, used some antivirus to clean the virus and if u confirm the system is attack by virus, just formate windows drive and reinstall a new window. it will be better for you.
