I just found that Video Egg programme whilst browsing through my computer files. What's it for? Can I get rid of it? Also, do you know what 'Python22' is? I want to get rid of that too. There is so much rubbish that has been collected on this computer over the years and I would go ahead and delete or uninstall loads of things. But I don't want to get rid of anything vital.

Video Egg is a video download programme that is supported by advertising and tracks what you download. So yes remove what is left of that
Python22 is a programming language primarily for drivers.. Do you design drivers ? if not you can remove it

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :)

A good workman allways cleans up after himself so...Download and run this small programme and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself

Now to get you off to a good start we will clean your restore points so that all the bad stuff is gone for good. Then if you need to restore at some stage you will be clean. There are several ways to reset your restore points, but this is my method:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > System Restore.
  • On the dialogue box that appears select Create a Restore Point
  • Click NEXT
  • Enter a name e.g. Clean
  • Click CREATE
You now have a clean restore point, to get rid of the bad ones:
  • Select Start > All Programs > Accessories > System tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • In the Drop down box that appears select your main drive e.g. C
  • Click OK
  • The System will do some calculation and the display a dialogue box with TABS
  • Select the More Options Tab.
  • At the bottom will be a system restore box with a CLEANUP button click this
  • Accept the Warning and select OK again, the program will close and you are done


Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free program: It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.
