comment Applications are being opened by IE instead of running normally
It might help if you provided additional information. XP version number and service pack? Do you keep your system fully patched? Do you have up to date anti-virus and have you run anti-virus and malware scans? What are some of the other applications that are opened in IE? Do you get the same behavior when booting into safe mode?

comment All windows dropdowns close instantly
Since it doesn't happen in safe mode what if you identified the processes that are running in safe mode and left those alone but killed the other processes one at a time until you find the culprit.

comment System Log Event Viewer will not display
Did you check services (Control Panel->Admin Tools->Services) to make sure the Windows Event Log is started? The start-up type should be automatic.

comment Software for system backup, with differential backups and bootable restorations
+1 for EASEUS. I have used it for a year or so and even had to restore from a disk image. No problems...seems to work great.

comment How can I compare data from an Excel file with an Access 2003 database?
The column names don't need to be same...just something that will make sense. You can always quickly change the field names in Access after you do the import.
