I purchased a PC booster/troubleshooter/optimizer program after seeing a
demonstration on QVC. (System Mechanic4). Oh dear!! What have I done?
After installing and running the disk everything has gone haywire. All the icons on
desktop have duplicated themselves and are accompanied by a load of symbols
instead of the usual text description. In addition to that the Address bar and
Tool bar have been disrupted. I responded to this by clicking on the desktop
and going through properties and then trying to restore some sort of order.
But on rebooting to 'fix' the changes, all the symbols have returned. I have repeated
this exercise on countless occasions with similar results. I accept that when one
loads these things on to the PC it's "at the users risk" I have now returned
the item for a refund. But now I am left with a very annoying problem. I would be
be grateful if anyone can come up with a solution.
