My windows xp won'y fully load or work any prograns, I get pop=up windows with supposedly nothing there. I was getting low virtual memory and system resource mesages but I cant get into the task manager or control panel to try and fix the virtual memory. Any ideas?

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode to make the necessary changes?

Not to sound like an idiot, but how do I do that?

Here's an article explaining how to get to Safe Mode. Basically you press F8 as the computer is booting and (best to press it a number of times until) a menu will appear offering various boot options. Becasue Safe Mode loads an absolute minimum of stuff you can often use it to fix problems.
