Hey guys,

Need help here.

I am currently having problems with my PC. I recently installed AVG anti spyware on my machine and all of a sudden some functions in my computer have gone missing. Like the text on the search function. Image below;

The system restore function text has also gone awol.

I already tried rebooting the system with the "last good configuration" and in "safe modes" but the problem still persists.

My yahoo instant messenger also was affected with texts in the message box missing. I tried the yahoo on the web and it worked fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled YM but still had the same problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to the group!

Try running a system file check.

The best course of action when running into problems like this, is to uninstall the programs that were installed just before the problems showed up. More than likely, what's causing your problems is the anti-virus software you installed. Uninstall it and see if that brings back the text in the windows.

Try to run repair on it. It sounds like some of th files may have gotten corrupted and thats why you're missing things.
