Hi, can you explain the issue please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Applications not opening ie:e-mail, virus protection etc

Unable to start applications

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
When did this problem start?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

about 2 days ago, no reason why it happened. Wifes computer

Expert:  James replied 3 years ago.
I did some research, and this is most likely a virus.

Boot into Safe Mode:
Reboot the computer, and keep tapping the F8 key immediately when the computer starts, and before you see the Windows Logo. You will see a black recovery console. Select Safe Mode from the menu.

Click Start, and go to Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools
Click System Restore
Follow the prompts to restore your system to a date when your'e certain it was working properly.

After you reboot, your system will be just as it was at the date you selected.

Thanks,

James.
