Ok,heres the Registry Cleaner I had in Mind and like you I am unsure if its the same as Bricats!
RegSupreme Pro 22.214.171.124http://majorgeeks.co..._Pro_d4256.html
Once downloaded and launched,Click Yes to Update the Cache-> Click "Registry Cleaner"-> Click "Aggresive" and "Start"-> Fix everything it finds-> Name the Backup it creates and Save it somewhere safe!
Please dont run this but one time to begin with!
Run it again in about 3 weeks and clean up anymore leftovers!
Now I believe you can go into Msconfig and Kill anything you dont need at Startup!
After that,I want you to look through the link below and reconfigure the way your services run!
Doing this is fairly simple but only you can determine exactly what modifications take place as I do not know how this PC is used!
The PC I am using right now is a laptop with no networking or routers of any type!
Therefore I was able to read through each service and determine what I needed and what I didnt!
Here is the link,feel free to ask any questions!http://theeldergeek....vices_guide.htm
Also I want you to peek at this link below and make sure you have a matching registry entry as described in the linkhttp://www.xs4all.nl...unload-dll.html
This link may help explain it a bit morehttp://www.daniweb.c...hread13609.html
Now for the fans,I suggest asking around the Hardware Forums for some Advice!
After you feel everything has been done,that we can possibly do Hardware and otherwise,post back please!
At your convience,I would like to see one more Online Scan to be sure nothing pops up!
