Here's what my original post said:
I am not sure where to start with my computer! My computer is sooooo slow and freezes a lot. Also, when I try to restart sometimes it won't boot up... It just shuts down and then eventually it will restart. The last time I restarted it popped up at least 16 of those black command windows with the command.exe and cmd32.exe files being prompted... I don't know if there were more screens than that, that's just what saw when I came back into the room. I started questioning things when I noticed that my computer was running low on space. I have a 100GB hard drive (79.4GB for the C drive and 12.6GB for the D drive) and my C drive is showing as only having 28.5GB free after I've cleaned everything up! I have pretty much emptied every file that I could off of the computer that was mine (i.e. photos, videos, games, word files, etc) and have them stored on a disk. I don't understand HOW I could have used that much space on my computer or where it went!
I have ran a virus scan (Trend Micro) and nothing came up to be fixed. I also ran Spybot Search & Destroy and fixed what came up (nothing was major except the koobface virus thing from facebook... grrr) I have disabled some things for the startup and it still doesn't make my computer boot up any faster or run any faster... I really need help in getting this cleaned or fixed. My brother also had me run Partition Wizard Home Edition to check my C drive because he thought maybe this was why it was showing as so much space being used (that some of the blocks or sectors were bad on my c drive..) after 21 hours to check the C drive, it all showed as working properly.. no errors... I was gonna just crash my computer and start it over from scratch, but I've been told that that still won't help find out how or why my hard drive is showing as having so little space, etc.
I've been having these problems for a while, but it got worse after I did windows updates two weeks ago... and Yes, I tried to go back and restore, but my computer wouldn't go back to a restore point... gave me errors... :-(
Also, when I bring up the Task Manager and look at what is using the CPU a lot of times it shows HIGH usage for the "System" (Not System Idle Process) Just wanted to note this too...
Can anyone help me fix my computer? I really need to get my computer back up and running so I can work on creating my baby shower invitations! Right now it would never be able to run Paint Shop for me to work on stuff! Ahhhh!!! Help!!!
(Thanks in advance!!!!)
