Hi again - here it is. There were many, many 'file not found' entries.
This could be a big part of your issue but we will see what else is here.

Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:
The next file needs to be manually disabled and is only needed if you use multi language on your keyboard. If you do then skip the step.
To turn off just ctfmon.exe go to:
Control Panel then to Regional and Language Options
Click on the Languages Tab then click the Details button
Click on the Advanced tab
Check the box that says Turn off advanced text services option
Click A and then OK
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
After completing all steps let me know how your system now runs

No problem though as I am usually online till about 10pm my time.

I hate to ask anymore questions - but I will anyway -
1. can I install Systems Mechanic again? I will never touch my registry with it, but what do you suggest a person does to keep the registry up-to-date?
2. What do you recommend for a syatem health program? eg - how often to defrag etc.
Regards and many thanks,

I personally recommend cleaning Temp files and Defragging at least once a week.
You can keep the TFC and Auslogics Defrag for this.

You solved one issue but still 1 to go.
Posted 15 January 2010 - 12:52 PM
Is it a burned or downloaded copy?
I can give you free alternatives to what System Mechanic does but I understand you want to use it so I'm trying to find a resolution for it.
Did you pay for it and if so have you contacted them for a replacement disk or for technical support with this issue?
It could be a known problem. Since revo didn't help and there seems to be no left over files I don't know why it won't install correctly.
The one option we have not tried is a system restore back to before the issue started.

1. Save the attached file I have sent you to the Windows desktop.
2. Double-click on it and run the exe file it contains. It will look exactly like the System Mechanic installer and prompt you for your activation key.
3. Once you have completed running it you should have no issues starting System Mechanic."
When it did not fix the problem, I told them so, no answer.
I am quite willing to accept your offer of an alternative rather than take anymore of your time trying to get SM to run,
Posted 15 January 2010 - 01:28 PM
My offer is there for your benefit if you chose to accept it once there is no other way to rectify this.
What about the option of a system restore? Is that something you are open to trying?
I do not want to sound redundant but your experience with this RegGenie is exactly why we here at GTG do not advise the use of those programs. I am very sorry it has caused such a problem for you but by restoring back to a date prior to RegGenie being installed may and i say MAY resolve this issue.
There would be no residual affects of the program and maybe System Mechanic will then actually be there to use.

Since I have never done a systems restore before, tell me the down side. If it does not help running Systems Mechanic, no problem. My concern is that nothing will run after a systems restore.
The only programs that I have installed (other than RegGenie) since December 16, 2009 are the ones you suggested during our sojourn together,
Lets 'give it a go' - I like to learn new things.

To do a System Restore follow these steps:
Click Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then System Tools
Click on System Restore
A Welcome screen will come up and you need to click on Restore My Computer To A Earlier Date
Then click on Next
Now you will see in the window Select A Restore Point. From here select a date a couple of days before the problem started.
Then click Next
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection window verify the Restore Point you chose is correct.
Close all open programs and click Next
The computer will now automatically shut down and reboot. When it restarts you will see ”Restoration Complete” page and then click OK
Once you have made sure that everything is now running correctly then please reply back with the results.
If this does not work then follow the next steps to do a Repair Installation

What about restoring back to December 15th.(Before RegGenie was installed) rather than just a couple of days before the problem started?
