I followed the instructions with regards regedit

You stated you did the regedit. If is still looking for files from the CD, then you either did not do it correctly or you have corrupted files that it can't replace.

Ending result is if it doesn't work you will have no choice but to purchase a XP installation disk.

Most of the time it will replace or fix anything without you even knowing it.
How is the system working now?

OK lets try the next step.

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.

Let me know if this fixes the problem

Can you provide a link that gives you a problem and we can check it out.
The next question is does this happen with both IE and Firefox?
You have tested the SFC and it ran to completion with the same results.
The sites are every site you visit or specific ones?
Try the following and see if this helps.
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.

According to post 4 you said Firefox was working fine.
So if everything is working I'm confused as to what is needing to be resolved now?
If you don't want to supply a link for me to check I can't see if it is the site or your system.
I would recommend a Repair Installation to try and make sure all OS files are good.
You can go to HERE to read the tutorial by one of the members here on how to do a Fresh Install or Repair Installation of you OS.

When I posted that firefox was fine, it was

Now its not, I cant supply you with a link to check because EVERY site I go on takes an age to load

Wasnt the whole point of doing the scannow /sfc to make sure all the OS files are good?

Ive changed it to 4096 and rebooted, I see a huge difference :-)
