    I am trying to fix my friends computer, but can not figure out the problem. The operating system is Windows XP Professional (SP3). No matter what I install, I can not open it. For example, I installed Avast and could not open it, but it installed correctly on the computer. No error pops up when I click on the exe, just nothing happens. I can not even open Microsoft Security Essentials, which was already installed on the computer.
