I can not select anything on my PC or use Task Manager. I hit a link on the web and a webpage became stuck on my screen and I can not close the browser and when I try to select desktop icons I just get a "beep". I can move my cursor and I can open Start Menu but can not select anything. The Task Manager will not open. Starting in Safe Mode does not improve anything, I still can't select any applications or Task Manager. How do I fix this? Can I fix this in Safe Mode with Command Prompt? If I could Restore my PC I thought I might be able to fix this but I can not select System Restore. Can I access System Restore with a Command Prompt? Or do I have to reinstall Windows XP? I tried to use Repair Windows with the XP CD but I do not know how to use the Command Prompt.
I have Spybot, Avast and Spywareblaster updated but these could not stop whatever happened to my PC.
Your Windows XP probably became corrupted over time due to whatever reason. Best thing to do now is a fresh install.
Yes. Boot into safe mode with command prompt. At the command line, type: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
