XP permissions problem

Dell dimension with XP home

I reformatted it before xmas, hard drive died so bought a new one, so it is a total clean install.

no problems on the reformat, worked fine for 10 days or so then suddenly this message comes up every time I try to open a program from either the desktop or from the program files.Windows cannot access the specified device path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

it is the same in safe mode

I have tried to make a new administrator user profile, but it wont let me.

could it be a virus? i have AVG8 installed

Any ideas out there
