    Look for a log of changes made by AVID and post them.

    What happens when you start the computer? Is there a Desktop, with
    icons? Is there a Taskbar?

    Explorer.exe is the Desktop, among other things.

    Iexplore.exe (8 characters, no "r" on the end).

    What happens when you try to run them. Quote the error message.. we
    don't need to see the actual image, just have it quoted, verbatim.
