It seems I have got some thing nasty on my computer!
Something is preventing programs from running, including, dial up, Norton and machine won't shut down without unplugging, so any changes I make will not save. Now I am no Buff but the only way I could get around the prob was to go into MSconfig and deselect all items from the start up. I waited and waited for windows to shut down, in the end I pulled the plug and restarted the computer. It opened up and gae me the chance to restore to a prev date. this I have done and all seems ok at the moment.
By way of clues. Some thing called STARTeak takes 100% cpu when trying to start. There are 2 progs I don't know what they are and have settled themselves in the windows file. Can't remove them a box comes up saying "canot open log file".
The progs are called "crush em" and "puzzle em"
Does any of this make sense? Is it a virus? Any help!

Doonz, Thanks for that it worked a treat. Removed some start up items from the registry and now all seems ok. Once again many thanks.
Now All I have to do is get those pop up windows working on that other computer
