spyware on my computer.  I use Windows XP Professional.  I can't open any programs or shortcuts on my desktop.  Then try opening
them they have developed a kind of computer language.  Any help I can get would be great

Hi Laurent HUH,.

·         Did you do changes on the computer before the show?

Follow the suggestions below for a possible solution:

Method 1: You can run the Microsoft Fixit in the following article and check if the problem persists.

Difficulty of broken desktop shortcuts and common system maintenance tasks



Method 2: I suggest that scan you SFC [SFC system] on the computer that would be a system file corrupt on the computer search and replace.

a. click Start, click run, type cmd in the Open box and then click OK.

b. at the command prompt, type sfc/scannow, and then press ENTER.

Note: Could you prompt to insert the Windows XP CD.

The sfc/scannow command. analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.

For more information, you can consult the following article:

Description of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 System File Checker (Sfc.exe)
