When I am opening my computer folder or control panel I am getting following error:

Windows can not find 'idlist,:532:1896,c:\program. Make sure you have typed correct file name.

This happens for all desktop icons.  I have widnow XP operating system.  I did file search on idlist but could not find.

Can you suggest what the problem might be and the solution for the same.

Thanks,

Bill

Hi bill4321,
1. Pres Ctrl+Alt+Delete
2. On the Task Manager (Applications Tab) Click New Task
3. In the run box that presents itself type the following %SystemRoot%\System32\restore\rstrui.exe
4. This will launch The Windows restore system pick a date (shown in BOLD) when the system was working and click next.
5. Your system will restore then reboot.
