What are 16 bit apps, could you give me a couple of examples, I don't think I use them though.

DEP--Data Execution Prevention, is the Windows default setting to protect system files. Control Panel>System>Advanced>Data Execution Prevention tab. Radio button for "protect system files" (top) should be checked as default.
P2P itself is not illegal, but is so often a source of malware and corrupted files that can create problems.
When you get Process Explorer (see Vox) it will list interrupts as one of the system processes. Interrupts occur when hardware needs must be attended before continuing with the software flow. 16 bit apps are the old programs that require XP to "fool itself" in order to be run. No longer common. The temps in the 50's are a little high, but you'll get better feedback on that from PCPitstop.

I've been to PCPitstop before. Had a look at the website again but didn't find any place to test the system's hardware in terms of it functioning correctly. It runs basic tests which I think are probably just like a basic foundation of what other more advanced softwares can test. I'm going to go with what Alienware told me and run PCMark or 3DMark depending on which one runs a stress test for the entire machine rather than just the graphics, if the stress tests pass I'm sure it would be wise to say my computer is not having hardware problems. This would lead us back to system files and the registry. On PCPitstop I saw "Optimize 1.5", read about it and well, it's just another system utility software and going from reviews online by users and professionals (CNET Editors) I'm going to lean towards TuneUp Utilities 2007 instead of Optimize 1.5, they both offer very similar scans and tests, just TU 2007 offers a few more than Optimize. First of all I'll make sure my hardware is error-free. Just getting back to my main question then, system utility softwares "could" get you out of problems and can be given a shot if your machine is having various different problems that could be related to a corruption of system files or the corruption of the registry, would you agree to that?
About the temperatues, those were given when it was afternoon here, today was very hot. Lol.
I checked the temperatures right now again and this is what I got:
Motherboard - 37C
CPU - 46C
GPU - 56C
GPU Ambient - 45C
Hard Disk 1 - 34C
Hard Disk 2 - 35C
As you can see there is quite a difference.

Tutorial (easy): http://www.larsheder...erunt/erunt.txt
In another thread, I am working with someone who used Tune to change some boot screens and now has problems. I suggest that you not make any changes to your system deeper than your user account level. That can easily be handled.

What do you mean by that exactly? I only have one user account on this computer and that has administrator level access.

I downloaded and installed Erunt and backed up the registry.
