Wow.. same exact thing happened to me. Corrupted os. Reformating, (as far as i know) is the only way.


EDIT> This is usually a result of a power surge.

Can you do a CTL - ALT - DEL and tell me if explorer.exe is running.

And post back.

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_restore.htm - Take a look at this page, it see you can use system restore to repair xp.

Or

ctl - alt - del then select new task and type C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\srdiag.exe

I saw a very suspicious process going on - lsass32.exe.

i ended it and all was restored.

checked this process out and indicated that that process was actually a worm.

downloaded a worm removal tool and all is ok.

thanks~!
