Alright! Did everything but the System Restore point (it wouldn't let me create one for some reason. The buttons remained inactive) and the FileHippo thing (don't think I'll actually need it). MalwareBytes is the actual purchased version, so I'm good there, and I updated Java also. Wondering if I should update my Adobe software also, as I know things used to come in through Acrobat.

Only thing my comp does bad now is boot up slowly, like it always has... But that's not a Malware prob. So... Yeah.

Yeah, do make sue to update your Adobe products as well.

Tell me in details what's going on with the System Restore bit. Any error messages that pop up?

As for the booting delay, you might want to disable any startup and non-Microsoft services that you don't need. Go to Run, type in msconfig, go to services tab, check Hide Microsoft services at the bottom, and uncheck all running services that you don't see a need for. Then go to the Startup tab and disable whatever you feel needs to be disabled.

System Restore works now. :o Maybe it just needed me to wait a day...

I removed a good chunk of Startup items and services that were unneeded a while ago to the point that there's hardly anything to disable now. The only thing I can think of is that there may be a lot of hidden start up things possibly going on in my registry or something... Things I don't want to mess with.

Ok, keep in mind that, aside from your security software, not every program you need running needs to automatically start up when your computer's loading the desktop. Disabling their startup does not render them unusable. I'm only speaking of startups here of course. Services are a different story.

Having said that, give this a try and see if it helps.
