The other week Buckeye_Sam did me a huge favour helping me get rid of some adware/spyware that was resisting my Spybot S&D scans. I was successful, finally, at getting rid of them, but now my computer is acting funny. Commonly, I'll get an 'explorer.exe error' and I'll have to reboot, or the task bar at the bottom of my desktop will disappear and I'll have to logout and back in in order to make it reappear. The biggest thing is that now when I load windows the computer takes about 10 minutes and for minutes at a time it juist sits there, seemingly doing nothing, without making a sound until the loading process continues. Did I do something wrong?
Any help would be great. Is there a windows scan program that will check the set-up, registry, and/or installation of windows for problems, then preferably fix them? I'm afraid I might have deleted something important. Registry Mechanic says there's nothing wrong with my registry.
