I've been using Virtual Machines for 8 years now, this is the first time something like this ever happened to me, I thought it would be interesting to share this. Configuration: 3GB RAM, 64GB Virtual Disk, Shared (NAT) Networking, Virtual PC 2007 SP1 running on a Windows 7 host. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6IblPEKDwE

Viruses, maybe?

It seemingly acts like system files were deleted and/or some heavy restrictions were applied to the point of preventing the user (that is, you) from accessing most basic tools...

I'd go for the first one, though, as I vaguely recall a similar behaviour... after I had deleted three quarters of the WINDOWS folder.

I was a very young child, and I thought there was junk... I learnt the lesson, anyway... :P


Don't delete the virtual machine, but try to look for something wrong in the system folders...
