System File Checker will check the system files and make sure they are not corrupt. From a Command line, type SFC. Have your XP CD handy.
I just started having this problem and am really flummoxed. This sounds like a virus to me and I was wondering if anyone out there has had the same problem and what they did about it. I am running an AMD processor w/ 256k RAM on XP os.
Ok, when I turn on my computer it starts and loads just fine but when I get to my desktop it just stops. When I try to open anything I get this message: c\system32\rundll32.exe
Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access.
I tried to restore and recieved the same message. Help !
