OK it looks that core system files are missing so lets try to get them back.

Try this first:

To resolve this behavior, turn on the Show Desktop Icons feature:

Right-click the desktop.
Point to Arrange Icons By.
Click Show Desktop Icons.



If no joy then go to the below.

Go Start and then to Run ("Start Search" in Vista),
Type in: sfc /scannow
Click OK (Enter in Vista).
Have Windows CD/DVD handy.
If System File Checker (sfc) finds any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD.
If sfc does not find any errors in Windows XP, it will simply quit, without any message.
In Vista you will receive the following message: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

For Vista users ONLY: Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs\CBS folder. You'll see CBS.log file.
Usually, it's pretty big file, so upload it to Mediafire .
Register and upload your file.
Then reply with the link located to the right of your now uploaded file on Mediafire


If you don't have Windows CD....
This applies mostly to Windows XP, since Vista rarely requires use of its DVD while running "sfc"
Note This method will not necessarily work as well, as when using Windows CD, because not always ALL system files are backed up on your hard drive. Also, backed up files may be corrupted as well.

Go Start and then Run
type in regedit and click OK


Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup

You will see various entries Values on the right hand side.

The one we want is called: SourcePath

It probably has an entry pointing to your CD-ROM drive, usually D and that is why it is asking for the XP CD.
All we need to do is change it to: C:
Now, double click the SourcePatch setting and a new box will pop up.
Change the drive letter from your CD drive to your root drive, usually C:
Close Registry Editor.

Now restart your computer and try sfc /scannow again!


Thanks to Broni for the instructions

rshaffer61,

I always had my desktop icons on my desktop.
The problem was that when I tried to open a icon it took forever to open,
sometimes I had to click on it 4 or 5 times. When it did open and I was on a page,
the page would jump up and down like i was scrolling but I wasn't. I couldn't read it
until it stopped jumping.

Hope I explained it to you correctly and didn't waste your time.
If I did I'm very sorry.

Do we still proceed?

John

OK gotcha now. Sorry for the confusion.
Try this:



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.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to Winlogon and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

Can you rerun it to make sure it got everything. The ones that have

Is this the same computer, on which you previously had AVG and on recommendation changed it to AVAST, that I see you have now - (from your autoruns)

That was the XP computer when you asked would AVAST run with MSE and it was in fact my colleague rshaffer61 who was helping then.

Obviously he advised no - do not run both.

You then asked about the use of registry cleaners etc. - and again of course, as always will be the case, you were advised to stay well away from them.
That of course - includes the Advanced system care you had on this computer - on this topic now.


In summary when the other topic was completed the system was running well, - you so reported.

There are some aspects here on this autoruns that were not on the computer, one indeed was the Advanced system care

I see on autoruns, a couple of things that MAY be causing this slowness

When you have completed the present requests from my colleague, I think an indication of what is installed and some knowlege of what system you have may help us.

Would you please send this
http://www.piriform....speccy/download

download the free edition please.

Send the URL please.
http://www.piriform....file-to-the-web

I am signing off - goodnight

IF IT IS the same computer, clearly it was running well and it is on the most likely bet - software installed since.

If it is not the same, please still send the Specccy

Sorry for any trouble I may have caused, but I forgot some of the recommendations
that were advised to me,I have to start writing them down.


Not sure on what computer was having the trouble at that time.
Both my wife's pc and mine were having trouble at one point or another.
I had Avg. on both computers and changed them to Avast per recommendation.
I also tried MSE because being Microsoft I thought it would run better, but deleted it.

I wasn't sure what Advance system care was, I had heard it was good to clean the pc.
I had just added it, but when rshaffer61 said it wasn't up to its standard, I deleted it.
I didn't even have it for a day before I deleted it.

I have on my computer:
Avast
Auslogics Disk Defrag.
SuperAntiSpyware
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
CCleaner
TFC
Psi
Erunt
Hijack This
I think this is all the cleaners I have.
I did have Everest but heard they went out, so I deleted it.

Should I have anything else or should I remove something?

Dell Windows xp Firefox and Internet Explorer 7..

No trouble john. Just go to your profile and then click on topics so you can find every topic you have started here. Just a word on what the final resolution is so the topic can come to a end is all we like to have. :thumbsup:


CCleaner.... Not sure why you have this so if you can just explain that please. ;)

Thank-You,I wasn't sure how to go back and check my old posts to update.
I thought that CCleaner cleaned out files and history and junk you didn't need.
If I shouldn't use it, I'll delete it.
Please leave me input on this and let me know what I should do with CCleaner??

Is there anything else I should try with my computer.It still jumps?

Having looked at Speccy, I would try disabling Secunia PSI and I believe Secunia update agent is part of that
http://secunia.com/p...s/consumer/psi/

I am not suggesting you do not use it, but I would not have it running all the time.

With that scanning your system and AVAST running and this running - every time you open a website
visicom_antiphishing.exe
OF course you must decide if you see a great risk as accepting a website masquerading as the genuine one - for instance a banking or other site where you are asked to reveal security details. - this is the purpose of a phishing filter

Phishing generally consists of e-mails from would-be financial institutions that contain links to their websites. The message text convinces the reader to click the link and enter confidential information in the window that follows, for example, a credit card number or a login and password for an Internet banking site where financial operations can be carried out.

A common example of phishing is an e-email from a bank that you use with a link to the official site. By clicking the link, you go to an exact copy of the bank's website and can even see the real address in the browser, even though you are actually on a counterfeit site. From this point forward all the actions you take on the site are tracked and can be used to steal your money.


I think you may find an improvement in performance if you were to disable them

I disabled Secunia PSI from the start up menu.
Couldn't find Secunia PSI update to disable.

Can't afford for someone to steal my money, don't have much of it.

Just thought of it, when I deleted
SuperAntiSpyware
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
from my wife's pc it seem like it ran a little faster,
only thing I would have to reinstall every time I used it than delete it again.
Would this be true or only my imagination?

I deleted CCleaner.
