Hi, I have a strange problem

My win xp starts without the menu bar, icons and desktop are there. Network is down and I can't backup anything because the "Paste" function is disabled

If I right-click on "Computer" icon and then "Manage" in "Event Manager" I can see many errors, but if I double click on them nothing appens.

Same on safe mode.

What should I do?

I checked for viruses using a live cd, but nothing

FYI running a single AV scan and getting no results does not ensure you are virus/malware/infection free !

If you have Windows CD - repair-install the OS.

Or, save what files (personal) you can, reset to factory settings and essentially start over.
