Folders closing after less than a second when opened

Hi! There,

I don’t know if anyone has experienced the same problem. I have a desktop PC, 120 GB hard disk, 2 GB RAM. Two days ago a friend came and asked me to assist him with some music files. He had an external hard drive. I plugged it in one of the USB ports and transferred the files.

I shut down the computer and when I logged in there was loud noise coming from the hard drive like something was scratching it. The strangest thing that happened was that every file I tried to open, opens for less than a second and before I even select an item from the directory, it closes down. This happens while trying to open any type of file.

I am stuck at the desktop and can’t view folders from MY COMPUTER shortcut icon on the desktop. When I open a program like Control Panel, it closes within fractions of seconds. This means I can't uninstall any program.

I tried to format Drive C by Windows XP CD and I was disappointed. The folder closed down the same way others did. The only thing I can do now is to shut down the PC by pressing the power button and rebooting it. Nothing else can be done. I have Kaspersky Antivirus 2011 installed. What can be the problem? Any ideas?

Dear Thomas Jackson

It seems you have tried all your best but there is still a chance to solve this matter by yourself. Just forget about the Windows. You can collect a Linux / Fedora  CD / DVD from the market. By this you can get your computer's problem solved. You don't need to install it. Just do one thing. Format the hard disk with this operating system .Then you go back to your Windows.

It really works buddy !

If you have not tried to log in using safe mode you can now try it. It is easy. You have to restart you PC and on loading windows press F8 key several times. It will show you some options and you have to select the safe mode now when window is booted. You can check if it's still creating a problem and if so then here you can run a full scan for your PC also check you disk by going to START and selecting RUN here type chkdsk all will be checked with in a few minutes. It will show any problem you can move to DISK DEFRAGMENTER and this will also see any fault in your drive.

If you want to install a new window to your drive then purchase a bootable CD and it will solve your problem easily. Hope you will like my views.
