Windows 7: Severe problem with my computer. Can't open programs.

Severe problem with my computer. Can't open programs.

Something really bad happened with my computer.

I can't open programs like My Computer, Recycle Bin, Personalizize, System, and many other programs. When i click on them, nothing appears.

Another thing is, the Save As, Save, and Browse buttons don't want to open.
Again, when i click on the buttons, nothing appears.

Can somebody give me an explanation what's going on?

How do i fix this major problem?

This thing is really annoying!

Would really love some help.

So your computer boots up and shows the desktop? My Computer, Recycle Bin, Personalizize, System are not programs . What actual programs have ou got installed on your PC? If you can read Save as, Save etc you must have a program open Which one is it nd how did you open it? Have you got an anti virus software installed and if so is it up to date?

But they don't WORK! I try to click on them and nothing appears.

Hello Silver, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If this just recently happened, then you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to undo it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The symptoms you describe are generally associated with Malware. I suggest you download Malwarebytes Chameleon from;

Use Malwarebytes Chameleon to install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on an already infected system : Malwarebytes Support

Follow all the instructions on that site, not just the download portion.

Please post back your results!

Well, at least can you find a fix at least with the Save As., Save and Browse buttons?

I can't save a damn thing like for example, on editors (Starcraft II, Warcraft III) and i've made maps for these games.

What happens when you scroll down a bit and try OPTION TWO in the tutorial link below to do a System Restore at boot and not from within Windows 7?
