Operating System Version:XP Home
Problem Application Name & Version:All applications except MS Office
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Sony PCG-FX401
Error Messages:

The Run function does not work. I can only start Word, Excel and other MS Office applications.
No other application or utility can be started with enter, double click or from the run command line.
I cannot reload the O/S or use any recovery disc as they do not respond. Restore does not work. On the control panel I can open the printer folder but the System or the Add/Remove software do not respond.
The problem dates back to some "tidying up " I tried three or four weeks ago. I guess I've done something dumb and removed something vital
Thanks for any help

Does system restore run? Start > All Programs > Accesories > System Tools

Are you sure you don't have a virus?
