Are you running any anti-virus software?  Is it up to date?

Suggest you try an online AV scan.  Symantec offer one at:-

Also anti -ad / -malware.  Eg AdAware from Lavasoft:-

Is memory low?  Maybe try to open the control panels as .cpl files so Find Files-->c:\windows\.cpl
.cpl is control panel win Win98
