Lately i've been having frequent errors about 'run a dll as an application'... but most importantly my taskbar error at startup. At startup, taskbar freezes completely, and i am no able to open any sort of application except for windows explorer. not even task manager will appear. then after about a good 10 minutes, everything i tried to click or open will instantaneously open all at once. its a real problem when you have to work right from boot up or a restart.
ive asked about this before, and done various malware scans and such, and its proven not to be malware as no staff member could find anything wrong with my cpu.
i currently possess an external hard drive, and have backed up my files that i would like to carry over. now is where you guys come in. to start fresh with my cpu and also repair windows, do you recommend that i reformat or just repair my windows somehow? im a little unclear as to the steps to take and what exactly to do.
i do infact have a restore dvd that has been included with my cpu, and it says it will reinstall windows, remove everything forom my hard drive and also reinstall my pre-installed software..
i would really appreciate it if one of you could perhaps guide me in this process.
