After clearing prefetch it need 4 reboots to replace the files it needs, though these will all be current instead of a mixture of current and non-current files in prefetch

a simple approach, try clicking run: type regedit.exe..... :whistling:


Did that yesterday and had no problems. Linksys drivers install a 3rd party .dll to the registry that interfers with Windows logon options. It's a proposed security measure for wireless owners, but the fix is in the registry. Now, I'm finding out there are deeper problems on this machine.

No, it just flashes the black command screen briefly and disappears.

You should see what the Malware Team say, if there is malware on the PC you won't get anywhere worthwhile in respect of repair

It's a good read if you are infected with regedit.com
