Do you have the original start up disc? If so use it. If not there is generally a button to use at start up that will get you to a screen where you can restore your computer to a previous date. The button is usually F10 or F11 or one of the f keys. Also make sure that you don't have a disk in one of the drives. Take everything out and try starting it up. Good luck.

Yeah. Windows is a flawed operating system. It should be called a Un-Operating System, because of the errors in the code of the software and application layers.Try Linux, 99% of the time, it works properly all the time.

This almost sounds like you have a maleware infection.
It almost sounds like the one that has been going around that claims to be Windows XP antivirus and that it found 450+ spyware infections (there is no such thing built into Windows XP).

I would suggest running SpyBot or Hyjack This to find out if you do have a malware infection.
