Default Windows XP help?

I think the probability that I have a virus is relatively high. Either that or Windows firewall is being over active.

All the accounts on my computer are locked out of using every program except Firefox and maybe some others. Even the admin account. I can't change or remove programs, open Internet Explorer, iTunes, and I can't run cmd or regedit. Either I have a virus or Windows is locking me out because I went into the registry and disabled the product code requirement.

Any suggestions? Tomorrow or the next day I'll probably wipe out my hard drive and reinstall XP.

This time I'll install virus protection before I set up my internet.

EDIT: I get the error message: windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the item.
