The computer runs kind of slugish now. It usually only freezes up then there is load on the system. For example while redering, running a game, importing/exporting video or running a antivirus or spyware program(it's not right away iether, it takes a few minuts for it to lock up). There have been cases wher it would jsut freeze out randomly.
It is not as bad as before. It use to freeze after about 5 mins. I managed to delete some of teh files by doing quick scan of teh system32 but they just keep coming back. Internet Explorer now does not work. Is there anyhting else I can try at all? :tazz:

btw thx for your help coachwife6 ;)

1) You might try repairing IE.

2) If you have an install CD, a repair install is easy, and often works great:

You won't lose any data or settings, but will need to reinstall any Windows Updates when finished.
