@Bryan - The Tech Support Guy Library has a good rundown of system maintenance stuff for your PC. You should give those a try: http://library.techguy.org/wiki/How_to:_speed_up_your_system

Also, setting your PC up on a regular back-up is always a good thing.

Hope these ideas help. I'm sure the rest of the crew will jump in with other valuable tips!

Happy Holidays.
Cheers,
Kim

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

Save that log file.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire log file here.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Start HiJackThis, but don't run a scan.

Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

Click on the "Save List" button.

Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere.

It'll then open in Notepad.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.
