This is my second attempt at posting this problem. On the first attempt, my curser began jumping around the text erratically until the whole text became highlighted then was deleted, all without me touching the keyboard. I am using Windows XP Pro, upgraded to SP2 about a month ago with minimal problems. Yesterday, I had changed some permissions and rebooted. When Windows came back up, I got a message window with a header of "Unregistered Version". The text said "Sorry, but your 30-day trial period has expired! Please register your copy a http://www.yourproduct.com
" To my knowledge, I have not recently installed any trial software. When I went to the site, it was a general link site. Now, lots of stuff is messed up: I cannot drag and drop, cannot cut and paste, nothing happens if I try to go to Windows Help,cannot search, cannot uninstall programs, my printers are gone and I cannot re-install them. Minimized programs reside on the desktop but not in my Taskbar like before. My Start-up programs do not start up. MS Word gives me lots of error messages. When I try to run Norton Antivirus, nothing happens. I cannot install McAffee Antivirus. I get an error message when I try to run Trend Micro house call. Spy Bot finds DSO-something, but Pest Patrol and Ad-Aware find nothing. I have tried everything in Normal and Safe Mode. I have deleted all the temp and internet temp files. I cannot post my Highjackthis log. Any ideas?
