OK now we will defragment the drive :)

 

Download and run this small programme, it will remove all temporary and junk files ( I recommend that you keep this and run it weekly ) 

 

Clear Cache/Temp Files
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.

Then

 

Go Start click my computer

Right click the C drive

Select Properties

Select the Tools tab

Click Defragment now

 

 

This may take a while so go out, enjoy the sun and have a drink  

Once it has completed reboot and let me know how it is

Just curious so I checked - been running for over an hour and looks the same.

 

Are the grey bars supposed to show something as it runs? They look the same.

Um...I just made BIG mistake.  :oops:    And I know you're not gonna like it. :no:

 

I deleted the programs we had been using cuz I thought it would be good to clear it out since the sound was back etc.

 

And now I have NO sound again. The Volume is grey once more.

 

So I just went back to the first page and downloaded to the desktop everything we have done - Naat too - and they are now back on the desktop.

 

AdWCleaner

Avast

ComboFix

DelFix

FRST

GMER

JRT

Mini Toolbox

OTL

SndVol32

Slim Drivers

TFC

Unchecky

WinZip

 

I am so sorry that I did that now. I was trying to clean up and just get rid of the stuff.   :bashhead:

OK Download sndvol32.exe  to your c:\windows system32 folder (click the underlined sndvol32.exe and it will download it from my dropbox)

Then run slim drivers and install the following 2 drivers :

CAAP - (WPM) and PCI Simple Communications Controller

When we are done I will safely remove the programmes we have downloaded, so just leave them for now    :)

 

Let me know how that goes

OK select scan and the two drivers should then appear in the list. If they do not we will restore the computer to yesterday


First we must disable Avast self protection
Double click the orange blob on the toolbar to open Avast
Select Settings > Troubleshooting
Remove the tick from Enable self defence module
Click OK and accept the warning
Close Avast




Go Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore



Select I wish to restore to an earlier time and click next



Select on the calendar yesterdays date and then on the right pane select the latest restore point
Then click next.
Allow the computer to do its thing and on reboot you should be back where we were
