    I have a system that was formatted about two weeks ago I put Service Pack 2
    and I have Norton Antivirus immediately upon install. The system boots up
    just fine but it will not run any programs. It was working fine until the
    day before yesterday. Now the system will not run any programs. If I go to
    view and folder options and file type the application is missing. I cannot
    even run a program from Start -> Run the system displays a message like it
    doesn't know what an executable is. I tried running setup in repair mode and
    I used another system to scan the hard drive for viruses but that was no
    help. Any Ideas?
