Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm
Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up
Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run defragmenter
Download, install and run Tune Up 2007 Trial
Run Tune Up disc clean up
Run Tune Up registry clean up
Disable the anti virus programme then click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot
Check the anti virus programme is running
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors
These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial
Click optimize and improve 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
If there is no change
Please follow the procedures outlined here: Malware Removal Guide
You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

I got to the step where I had installed the tuneup program and when I try to run the program it gives me the following error:
"Integrator.exe - Application Error
The application failed to initialize properly (0x80000005). Click on OK to terminate the application."

If tune up won't run, start the malware part
Posted 29 April 2007 - 10:15 PM
The installation of this TuneUp product is damaged. Please reinstall the TuneUp product to correct this problem."
I reinstalled the program and rebooted and recieved this message again.
Could you either reccomend a staff member or move this thread to the HJthis forum?
Also I have recieved this error on other programs. I don't remember which programs probably trial software.

the reason i ask is because i work with a lot of older ones...
if you have .net framework installed, that will slow down these old computers
some programs need .net but most don't
if you uninstall it, you can always reinstall it using microsoft update

Printing to a network or local printer and nothing happens.
The only way I found to stop it was to kill the spooling process in msconfig.
So I killed it there. rebooted, and the darn spooling thing was still in msconfig.
Maybe i didn't wait long enough for it to time out, but I reformated and reloaded winxp.
It got to be aggrevating.
So your symptoms sound much like I've had in the past.
Even the TuneUp 2007 thing.

If you right click thae toolbar click taskmanger.
Or Control-Alt- Delete will bring up the task manger.
Click on the 'processes tab-cick cpu twice.
And that will show what's using up your cpu.
Click 'view' in the menu to slow down it's refresh rate so you can catch that little buggar.
Do not kill System Idle Process.
But other things that you know shouldn't be running kill them.
It may take reinsalling the program that it relates to.
Novice, with only hands on experience.
Do so at your own risk.
Then kill the process and uninstall the program.
For instance that Integrator thing-I'd kill it.
Or you can reboot and run -
See what program it is associated with.
Reboot and see if that process is still there and taking up way too much cpu time.
