The lights are on
Ok, first off I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section but it seemed the most appropriate.
I'm having some trouble with my computer. After running for a little while I can't open anything except My Computer, Control Panel, and Recycle Bin. I usually don't get an error message, but the first time it happened I think it came up with one in reference to Windows Explorer. I've been googling the symptoms but so far I can't seem to find anything.
I've tried running my anti-malware software and it hasn't found anything (I have Spyware Doctor). I don't have something to remove viruses yet and I kind of suspect it's a virus. I'm not that great with computers though so any help anyone can give would be hugely appreciated. I'm using Windows XP Media Center edition.
we already have an official thread for computer help here. Next time, please use the search bar at the top before making threads to see if they've already been made. Thanks. I'd join your post with that thread, but I'm having some trouble doing that, sorry.
