ok thanks that problem is fixed, but i was mess around with the "unlock" program in ur signature, i selected all folders in program files , then a window pop up and i unlock all of its files/dll shown on the pop up. Then i tried delet some icons from desktop or startmenu, my window crashed. I uninstalled Unlock, it works fine but when i install unlock back it crashes again. I want to keep the Unlock program and not to crash, sorry for my dumbness, but do u know how to fix it?

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you will need the XP CD

System File Check will display an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.


When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should and you can check for any improvement


This section is optional

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


You should use Unlocker when you need it, using it enmasse may have upset something, the above should put things back in place
