did you check and reset the transfer mode like I asked in post # 5...
go to START
...type in MSCONFIG
...then click on OK
or press ENTER
click on START UP TAB
everything EXCEPT your AV and firewall
...if its a laptop you have to be careful about what you uncheck or your touch pad and wireless and things like that will not function for you..
google each start up item to decide if you need it to load with windows...unchecking them does not remove them ..they are still available to use...
the next thing we are going to do is turn off indexing ....its a resource hog and if you aren't searching for things on your computer 10 times a day it will only slow down your system....
click on start.
click on C: drive
...on the general tab..uncheck
...allow indexing on this drive....if you do not have the box on your system...
...type in SERVICES.MSC
...scroll down until you find INDEXING SERVICE...click on it and in the general tab set it to DISABLED
To clean your temp folder, recycle bin, index.dat etc..please download this free tool...CCleanerDon't install any Toolbars
, or other programs, should it ask you...Just
uncheck the option of installing the Yahoo toolbar....if you get
the slim version it does not have the toolbar
thats the one I recommend...
It will put a shortcut on your Desktop.
Click on CCleaner to start it....
Before first use...
"Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"
The rest of the standard settings are fine...
Then click "Run Cleaner"DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OTHER TOOLS...RUNNING THEM MAY CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS
next get diskeeper lite here
after installing it...click on the icon
...close the "nag" screen...click on your c drive
to select it ...then down towards the bottom ...click on defragment now
...first time you use it it may take 15 to 30 minutes to complete...do it about every two weeks and it will complete in about 7 minutes...
reboot and tell me hows its running...
you do not have to defrag in safe mode with diskeeper lite and its 10 times as fast than the defragger that comes with windows
no joy ...
Chkdsk is a utility designed to check the integrity of the data on a computer's hard disk drive as well as find and fix errors which could corrupt such data.
Running chkdsk on your Windows XP or 2000 system can repair minor Windows problems
There are several different methods that can be used to run chkdsk
proceed to one of the next options...read them both first
1. Click the Start
button then... Run
2. In the Run window's Open box... type in ... cmd
3. Click OK
and an MS-DOS-style black screen will appear in a new window
4. Run chkdsk by typing one of the the following commands where the cursor is blinking... chkdsk c: /f /r
and then press ...ENTER.
typing chkdsk c: /f /r will both fix errors and recover lost data. Running chkdsk with both the /f and /r options can often take a considerable amount of time
depending upon the size of your hard drive and the amount of data stored on it
OR chkdsk c: /f
and then press ...ENTER
Typing chkdsk c: /f will only fix errors that are encountered but its much faster
5. With either command, a message will appear that says...chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? <y/n>"
6. Type y
(for "yes") and then press ...ENTER
7. A message will appear that will say...This volume will be checked the next time the system restarts
8. Type exit
and then press ...ENTER
9. Reboot the computer as you normally would and chkdsk will automatically begin running after your reboot... While chkdsk is running you will see a light blue window with a dark blue band at the top and bottom. Chkdsk will display the specific stage it is checking as well as the percentage of completion of the stage.
You cannot do anything else on your computer while chkdsk is running. When chkdsk is finished, it will automatically reboot your computer.
NOTE...it may appear to hang or even backup some...let it run
