OK here we go................... :) :)

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:

+ "Adobe Reader Speed Launcher"
+ "iTunesHelper"
+ "KernelFaultCheck"
+ "QuickTime Task"
+ "SunJavaUpdateSched"
+ "Windows Media Connect 2"
+ "MSMSGS" "Windows Messenger"

When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged

On a side note there are three entries I don't know what they are
+ "MSPY2002"
+ "PHIME2002A"
+ "PHIME2002ASync"

Do you know what these are?
Once done let me know how the system now runs

those files have to do with translating japanese to english in firefox, I did install something like that.

I did TFC and the hard drive is not working constantly now but it did stay blinking for like five minutes when I logged in which is not what it usually does.

defragging now

Let's do some scans and see if there is a problem with any of your hardware or software. I want to start with your hard drive.

Go to
Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.
If it finds and repairs any errors then you will need to redo the above steps until it does not find any more errors.

Let me know if this fixes the problem
