    Have A Real Prob With Mates Comp Help Please

    HI ALL

    my mate asked me to have a look at his comp ,i dont know a great great deal but a fair amount but this as me baffled

    he has a old packard bell this is the problem

    when you boot up everything comes up ok, but then when you click on anything nothing happens

    you click start it just stays pressed no pop up

    when you click on the my computer it comes up with the screen but nothing in it then it comes up saying

    your active x controls prevent some things from showing and the whole lot is blank NOTHING THERE this is the same with everything else

    I managed to get into the folder options and changed some thing to show all folders then applied it it works for a split second then goes back to blank

    i have tried to go into the internet explorer settings but the security page is blank with just the slider.

    i have also tried to boot up using the recovery disk but it wont read yet floppy is ok and the floppy disk is ok as i read it on my comp




    IS THIS A VIRUS WHAT CAN I DO
