I got my pc late last year, so I don't know how it has gotten a problem
already. Whenever I press Ctrl+Alt+Del or right-click my tool bar and choose
Task manager, it only flashes the window or doesn't open it at all. Also,
when i try to run msconfig with Start>Run, the window only flashes or doesn't
show up.

(Supplemental question: Why don't I have a Floppy drive? In my computer, it
says I have a "SmartMedia (H:) " drive with a Floppy disk icon, but there is
no slot to insert one on my tower.)

Q. "Why don't I have a Floppy drive?"

A. Contact the manufacturer of your computer for assistance
or read the User's Guide that came with your PC.

[[When you open System Configuration Utility [MSCONFIG], Registry Editor or
Task Manager, they flash for a second and quit. This symptom is caused by
Viruses.]]

Task Manager, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT disappear while opening
