Perhaps the best way forward would be for me to check out the other forums you suggested, after that.
I appreciate all your help with all the technical challenges.
Many, many thanks

Warning: This fix is relevant for this system and no other. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.
- Download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the same location where the program is. (It should be the desktop)[attachment=67223:fixlist.txt]
- Please re-open the Farbar Scan tool. To do that:
- Right click the FRST.exe file, click Run as Administrator and OK any UAC prompts to run the program.
- Press the Fix button just once and wait. The tool will make a log (Fixlog.txt). Please post it in your next reply.
The Fixlog.txt file can also be found in the same location that the program was run from.
Then, if you haven't performed the clean up steps yet, go back to post #120 and do so.
Things For Your Next Post:
Please post the logs in the order requested. Do Not attach the logs unless I request it.

Is that true? As I use my PC a lot usually 8hrs a day, what would you recommend? Is AVG the best or would you suggest something else more substantial or cost effective instead?
All the other info you provided at post 120 is very helpful too.

I've done steps 1-6 ok, although I couldn't follow your "run" instructions as my system works differently but I seem to have gotten around that!
Step 7 - I've created a new restore point -
My problem is when I came to purge the old restore points.
I got to the disk clean up window, I don't have the option "system restore and shadow copies section".
I have ONE tab Disk clean up and on there is a selection of options tick boxes to clean up, none of those are system restore and shadow copies. Also I have a button to select lower down which says "clean system files button" is that what I use instead?
