Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

Unable to open any of my applications

I am no longer able to open any of my applications on my desk top. This problem has only just occured now. Seems to have happened when I was trying to remove some spyware from my computer, but when I try to open something i.e. music, the window frame appears but the little power bar on top of the window grows slower and slower the more it loads and never seems to reach the end. Is it somthing to do with removing the trojan? Is the trojan still there? Or did I accidentally delete a necessary file somewhere along the line. Please help! Thanks in advance

    I should mention that I can still watch my movies or listen to my music, but I have to play them by using the small side window that opens while your waiting for the other window to open. I just cant open the folders properly.

A freind gave me a compaq evo d300v desk top windows xp professional. How do I do factory recovery? I was told f11 but so far I was able to f8 and open windows advance options menue.

Best advice here is to get the windows 7 operating system as windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and updates are no longer forthcoming
a factory recover may require a re-entry of the registration code so you will need to get that from your friend..

Dear bhaskaran aravindakshan

You may be using a media player application which doesn't support downloaded file's extension. Try to search for media player application which support downloaded videos. You may also try "K-light codec pack".

I do suggest you do uninstall it. It may be in conflict with your other applications or there might be a special configuration setting that you need to set it with to work. It will be more appropriate if you try to download a proprietary application that your manufacturer developed. Here are a couple of links that you might wanna try out and see if any of them works.

You can only change the device manager settings for you to uninstall any recent hardware or driver.

Right-click My computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager

Just one question. Did you install any hardware driver before it happened?
