Thanks 123Runner, sorry I did not get back -
This was one of the problems that I was afraid of, >> I'm using RegServo now
My older and smaller 1G XP
desktop is stil my favored, over my newer 4G Win 7
I have never reverted to Reg Cleaners, as I have seen the misleading
problems they can cause.
A well maintained older computer can still serve you very well if cared for and please ask us
for any more advice.
Please try to install the Free version
of Comodo Firewall if your Windows Firewall is turned off.
Make sure you install the Comodo Free version
only and ignore all other items on the page
Now try to see if your Microsoft Security Essentials Antivirus
can be reinstalled and updated (You need it).
These 2 are among my better programs and I make sure they work well and are always updated .
To help speed things up a bit, you can use simple installed items, like Delete Browsing History and similar items.
Open Internet Explorer, Click Tools
if you cant see it), Miss the Top item then check the next 3 boxes.
This will help a bit. Also open Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup and use that, and Disk Defragmenter also.
To reset System Restore again, in System Tools is System Restore. Click on this and look at the Left side to see System Restore Settings
Click on this. If the Box on the upper Left side is ticked, Untick it
and click Apply
at the bottom. This should reset your System restore.
Look in Add / Remove for Regservo
and remove it
if you can see it there, ask us if you do not see it.
This is just a basic list to start with , Please post back with any more questions and someone will help you further -
Thank You -
