I ran a thorough scan with Avast, after about 70000 files the whole desktop froze, and I saw that Avast had stopped at "dllcache", and I had to switch off the PC at the mains.
When I restarted, I ran sfc /scannow, I have I386 copied to c:\ drive and it has always worked o.k.
Just after scannow started, it too froze the desktop and I had to switch off at the mains again.
On restart, I re copied I386 to the c:\ drive and checked the registry paths, these were o.k. on running scannow again, I got the same result.
Why will not sfc /scannow run correctly?
I have cleaned the registry with Eusing, a-squared, CClean, and carried out checks with ad-aware, SpywareBlaster, and Spybot. I also have ZA Free version.
Any ieas please?
