First kill the CAPS, that means shouting and we do not like others shouting at us.

Try restoring your registry and see if that helps. Boot to a DOS prompt or boot to a Win98 bootdisk, at the prompt type "scanreg /restore" and hit enter. Now choose a date that is older then when your problem first started.

let us know if this helped.
