Fatal mistake?

As a novice I had no idea that I was making, what I have now been told, was a " fatal " mistake in downloading a SECOND anti-virus programme onto my laptop.
After the down-load the computer shut down and restarted automatically. I thought that all was OK, but now find I cannot load any programme.
I have gotten into "workplace " intending to load software programmes,and then uninstall the 2nd Anti-virus programme, but none of the software programmes will load ie; blank page under "Software " page.
Please .... where do I go from here.? Thanks in advance of any replies.

Windows XP - Home Edition.

can you access system retore under start - all programmes - accessories - system tools- system retore? If so run this and restore to a date when your laptop was running OK.

Al94 ... my laptop is a German one, and I am having all my work cut out just getting into Programmes. At the moment when I try to access all programmes it just hangs up with the dreaded hourglass icon. Will try to get in though and post back .. Thanks.

Or go to Start, Run, type in

C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

and click OK.

Managed to translate and successfully uninstalled the new Anti-virus programme. All is well again. Many thanks to you all.
