i'm new here. anyway, my computer started giving me a message:

iedw.exe-Application Error

I don't remember everything but it was saying that there was a problem accessing the memory or something. it gave me an i/o error in "0xc000009c"?

what does that mean and can i fix it without losing my files saved to the hard drive?

it only does it when i go to the internet and it moves really slow anytime i'm not online. did i get a virus?

PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU CAN WALK ME THRU FIXING THIS WITHOUT SACRIFICING MY FILES

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

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, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

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

Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

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. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this

Check the anti virus is running after the 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

okay was trying to follow your instructions but defrag won't start. it will show the pointer and hourglass for a second and then do nothing, as if i never even tried to run the defrag. :whistling: :blink:

Skip that and move to sfc /scannow as it could be missing system files
