I guess I need to appologize for my eagerness. My appologies .
Please bear with me momentarily
I have been using computers for more than 20 years now. My first was a Texas Instrument with a cassette drive. I have had C-64s and all *86 models. I have always had fun with them, and I used to program some in Basic ....ya ya I know...ancient history. My point is only that I have always been a hands on user. I DO NOT know everything...in fact I have fallen very very far behind as far as todays systems are concerned. I still love to play with them, and I am always learning. And I know none of that means squat in real terms.
I only mention this because I feel a slight need to defend myself ( a charater flaw ), I really didn't feel like I was giving you advice. I was simply having fun learning. I guess I thought I could pick your brain and discover the reasons for your instructions as we went through them.. I was tossing out my thoughts looking for corrections to my reasoning. I was looking to learn from you as this machine was worked on.
In hindsight, I can see where this forum is not the place to accomplish that end. Geek-u is the place to learn...not here.
I am still interested in having my computer run better. I am however, unsure if this thread is right place to do it. I do not know if I have a malware infection, a conflict between programs, something setup improperly...I don't know. I don't know if you would be willing to help me figure it out.
When I first found Geeks To Go, I was infected...what I learned in the first hour here was that I was using malware as a legitimate malware remover. That got fixxed and I ran all the scans I was asked to. Thank you.
Startup and Shutdown are still extreemly slow... there may be something wrong with my firewall..I just don't know.
Gadzooks...I do go on don't I...
Anyway, I have reset the restore points and I have run KAV (there was one of the 016s still showing up)
Yes I am using Tweakui
Once more Thank You for your Time.
