Hey guys...

As you know, I am trying to change dial up ISP.... "God help me to be able to stay on longer than 5 minutes right now"

Well, I went to download the AOL 8.0 cd... But having problems, and come to find out that there is to much running in the background to get it downloaded...

Your not going to believe <_< all that I have been going through sense 5 pm and it is not 10:38pm.... :P

But it is stating that 100% of my :o space is all used up...

Can you :D me asap?

Thanks
Staci

Sounds like this is maybe an issue of your hard disk space being full, and not running processes. Have you tried using add/remove programs to remove any unneeded programs?

My Websearch {Smiley Central} <~~ Still in system 'remember'
Microsoft Outlook Express 6
Outlook Express Q837009
RealPlayer Basic <~~ Dont know what this is for, and I dont listen or download music....
Tweak UI

VB6 Runtime Files for IDAutomation.com Applications

<_< No help heh? :D lol... Then I guess I am not talking to the right person that can help me then heh.... lol... :D

Well, on the Tweak UI, the guy I told you about that I used to let work on my puter, he put that there and said that I needed it due to the SE that he installed on my puter...

I went to take it off one other time, and it messed up things... And he said that was bad to do...

I dont know... I dont know really what it is for and such...

you think it will be ok to delete, no worries...

"You know me, I dont like to worry" ... lol

Thanks for helping me again this one millionth time :D

Download and install numbers; 1, 2, and 4 straight from the manufacturer.

#1: Graphics driver (what you're after)
#2: Chipset driver (yes, it's needed)
#4: Intel Application Accelerator (will speed things up)

All are needed. You don't know what you'll get from other sites. You can be sure what it is when it is straight from Intel's own website, and you don't have to register for anything. <_<

But the cleaner that I can keep this, the better... Oh, yeah... The Media player comes with AOL so I cant get rid of that...

And also, when downloading one of the free anti virus downloads "Avast" do I open it, or download it?"

I don't recommend using Avast as a free anti-virus. AVG Free Edition is the best free anti-virus available, hands-down. You'll love it. You don't need "Panda Anti-virus" anymore if you get AVG. Just uninstall both through the control panel and install AVG Free Edition:

http://www.grisoft.c...s_dwnl_free.php

You have just a little cleaning up to do. Reboot in safe mode (by tapping F8 at startup and select safe mode from the menu). Be sure you're able to view hidden files and folders, and remove the following files:

C:\PROGRAM FILES\NETZERO\ <-- This Folder
C:\Program Files\NZSearch\ <-- This Folder

Next, please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log. <_<
