Okay, for some reason, Windows asked me to start up with the check disk utility, so I let it go about its business, which should have taken 5 minutes, so I left it and when I came back, it was somewhere around stage 3, deleting my invalid security IDs and replacing them with defaults, already at around 40,000.
I stopped it and just skipped the check, and now, Windows takes an eternity to load up, the start bar is missing the first couple seconds, the language bar is on the left instead of right side, I can't log into MSN, none of the windows I open show up on the bar, and some other problems.
Is this a Windows related problem or a virus?
Also, I can't use System Restore for some reason, a pop up saying "System restore cannot protect your computer, please restart your computer then use System Restore again".
So yeah, how do I fix this..
