Windows applications not working

  1. Hi

    I have a friend with a problem. Avast was telling her to update and she clicked on something and the computer re-booted and now Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and MSN are all malfunctioning.

    If you go to Add remove programs / windows components they all read 0.0 Mb but they are all checked on. I remove and then re-install but to no avail.

    I re-downloaded IE 7.0 and WMP and this has not helped.

    I think it is registry related stuff.

    I think I can try and re-install Windows XP and do a repair but this feels extreme.

    Any other ideas?
