Sounds like a system error to me. Defragging doesn't actually fix problems you know, all it does is clear space contrary to popular belief. And how can he scan for virii if his programs won't open?
Ok dude, that sounds pretty serious; either email Microsoft (they do actually reply pretty quickly) and if they can't help you, then put your windows disc in your computer and restart. When it boots from the CD say you want to install xp (Don't go into the recovery console) and then select your installation from the list that comes up and press the key to repair. It won't format so you won't lose any files or installed programs, all it does is reinstall system files.
