I removed some components using Control Panel/Add-Remove (google toolbar for IE, SKYPE toolbar plus some others which i knew i didn't use)

After this I was 'MOVING' a Folder from my desktop to a USB HDD. The 'MOVE' stopped responding and i use TaskMan to end it. The folder i was moving was still on the desktop and when i tried to put it in the recycle bin it remained on the desktop and there was no error message.

I then used IE7 and found that it browsed OK but any attempt to use the 'FIL" menu caused it to 'HANG'.

I then thought i would remove IE7 but when I started control panel/add remove the applications window did not populate (no removable programs in the pane ....EMPTY)

I then went to do a system restore but i could only get as far as the point where the system restore should occur and this application also hung with no error message

I am at my wits end...all other applications seem to be working OK (Outlook, SKYPE, MSN) whay has gone wrong ??
