    Ok, something is wrong with my computer and I don't have the slightest idea of what it could be. I have virus protection so I don't have any idea of what it could be. The computer boots up just fine but none of my programs will open, and I can't connect to any networks. When I try to open the programs, nothing will happen or they will say not responding. This happens for every program. Can anyone here help me figure this out? It's Windows Vista.

    Hmmm, that's strange. Can you open any programs at all? I'd suggest doing a system restore, but from the sound of things, that won't be possible.
    I think you might need to get an expert to look at it.

    Do not do a system restore.

    Restart your PC and go into safe mode, run a virus scan. See where it goes from there.

    In case putting it into safe mode and scanning for viruses doesn't work, another simple way to check your system for errors and have the computer fix them is to run a chkdsk utility.

    You used to have to run this in Command Prompt, but Vista has another place that you can access the utility. Here's the instructions on how to run it. You can try putting the computer into Safe Mode if you can't access the utility under normal settings.

    Just remember that you should not interrupt the process once it starts.

    I agree. Best way to diagnose the program without having to install diagnostic software, which sounds like you cannot do at the moment anyways. I'm curious to know if you had to access from safe mode. Can you keep us apprised?

    Wow, so it wasn't a problem with the registry. How unusual.

    Macs are really expensive. Especially if you are 16. ;)

    Not really, if you were a tech smart 16 year old, you'd know that to put everything on a pc that a Mac has, it would cost about 2000 dollars in upgrades and around 3000 altogether. That is 3 times as much as a regular MacBook. So really they arent that expensive.

    Still too expensive for me to rack up 1000+ dollars.
