    Default Win98se not able to run anything !!

    I am using Win98se on one of my machines and it loads up just fine all the way to the desktop and all icons are there but when i click any icon, or try to open (anything).. ie .. txt, ini, exe, bat, log, etc.. it will not run.. period.

    I had 1 virus i believe it was PrettyPark.worm, anyway i removed the hard disk from that machine and put it in my WinXP Pro machine which has Norton AV 04, and NOD32, i was able to remove the virus with NOD32 but when i put it back in its true home any and all programs or anything else for that matter will not run, i seem to remember that when NOD32 was running the scan the first thing i saw was somthing about locking the drive, has anyone here used NOD32 and if so have you heard of this locking the disk and how to remove this lock if that is the problem. Sence i cannot run regedit from the hard disk or a floppy i was not able to check it to see if mabye the regestry paths were screwed up or somthing along those lines, the system.ini and windows.ini were all in order so im at a loss here, has anyone here experienced anything similiar if so id apprciate any input on this.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    - Sorry, yes i tried safe mode as well same story, o i almost forgot to ask does anyone know any commands or a website telling commands to edit the regestry from a command prompt, id appreciate it.
