Windows XP - recently the compuer hung and I had to hold the power button to turn off the computer. Since then the computer displays the active desktop recovery screen. If I choose click the restore my active desktop button, i get the widely reported script error
char : 1
Error: Object doesn't support this action
Any program I try to run immediately exits reporting a "file regedit.exe is infected" security alert type error. the Antivirus software reports a security alert and IE eventually autoboots but will not displaya a webpage.
The immediate program exit means I cannot run any of the solutions (I've found) on the answers data base and so I'm completely stuck.
Any help would be appreciated.
