I've been having some problems trying to get Disk Cleanup to load up, I defragmented the other day and was cleaning my computer up but Disk Cleanup would not load. Here's my HJT log:

Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, :tazz:

Welcome to the Geeks to Go forums.

We are currently studying your log. :)
***********

You are currently running HijackThis from your desktop. Since HijackThis makes backups of any entries you fix, you should create a folder just to hold the HijackThis program and its backups, so the backups and the program are not accidentally deleted. Go to "My Computer", click on c:\ and then go to the "File" menu, choose New -> Folder. Name the folder "HJT" or "HijackThis" and then please move the "HijackThis.exe" executable there.

In addition, I want to make sure your PC is configured to show hidden files. Here is how to do this:

Windows XP

* Click "Start".
* Open "My Computer".
* Select the "Tools" menu and click "Folder Options".
* Select the "View" Tab.
* Under the "Hidden files and folders" heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
* Make sure "Hide extensions for known file types" is unchecked
* Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
* Click "Yes" to confirm.
* Click "OK".

Here is a link for further explanation: http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

Then I want you do a search for this file: cleanmgr.exe.

Let me know the directory path/paths or location/locations of this file, if it exists on your computer.

Restart your computer and then please post a new HijackThis log.

Moving HiJackThis to the folder only made it a shortcut. I found three files with the search name of cleanmgr.exe:

CLEANMGR-1F86EA8E.pf C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
cleanmgr.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32
cleanmgr.exe C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\

The third one had many numbers and letters after the download\. I didn't think it was needed, but if so, I can re-search and type it.

Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, :tazz:

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.
*****************

I would like you to open up your window explorer application and navigate to the following file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cleanmgr.exe

I would like you to double click on the "cleanmgr.exe" file. This should open run the "Disk Clean up Utility". Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

Let me know in detail, if the "Disk Cleanup Utility" runs by double clicking this file (i.e. that is the "cleanmgre.exe" file). Let me know in detail, if the "Disk Cleanup Utility" stops running or if you receive any error messages, while running this application. :)

Disk Cleanup starts, but three of the status bars stay there, and it never gives me an option to clean, so it kind of stays there.

Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, :tazz:

(Note: Please read through these instructions and the articles I provided you a couple of times before executing these steps.)

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.
*******************************************************

I have been doing some research through google on why your "Disk Cleanup Utility" is hanging up. From these articles, I came up with two possiblities: 1) Your computer needs to be defraged and 2) You have a corrupt temp files.

Here are a few links that describe the situation:

http://channels.lock...p_utility.phtml
http://www.logicalti...icle.asp?ID=470
http://windows.about.../l/bltip701.htm

Since in your first post, you said you defragmented your computer, then it leads me to believe that you have corrupt temp files. To get rid of these corrupt temp files, you have to clean out (delete) the files in your Temporary and Temporary Internet Files. Let try this method to clean out these corrupted temporary files.

Please download CCleaner from here: http://www.ccleaner.com. Install and run it, and clean out your Temporary and Temporary Internet Files (as well as anything else you may want to clean out.)

Go to the Start Menu, click "Run", and in the window type cleanmgr. Let it scan your system for files to remove. Make sure these 3 are checked and then press *ok* to remove:

Temporary Files
Temporary Internet Files
Recycle Bin

(Note: Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, if you get this far, you may encounter another problem within the "Disk Cleanup Utility", the following steps address this matter.

Let me know if you receive this message:

Disk Cleanup is calculating how much space you will be able to free on (C:). This may take a few minutes to complete. Scanning: Compress old files


If the Disk Cleanup does not work, try running the Disk Cleanup Utility again (i.e. Click Start | Run and in the Open box type cleanmgr and click OK). When the Disk Cleanup dialog box appears, choose the "Disk Cleanup" tab and uncheck the "Compress Old Files" checkbox, if checked. Continue running the program and let me know in detail if this works. If you receive an error message, give me the exact text of that error message in a reply to this post.

Let me know in detail if you are still having problems with running cleanmgr. Is your computer system functioning better now? :)

Yeah, Disk Cleanup works now. Thanks so much for your time. And I have another question. How can I get more FPS while playing online games? Does it have to do with my video card?

Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, :tazz:

(Note: By FPS do you mean Frames Per Second?)

You may want to print out these instructions or save them as a text file with "Notepad" to your desktop because we will be restarting into Safe Mode later on in the fix and you might not be able to access the Internet.
******************************

I want to make sure your PC is configured to show hidden files. Here is how to do this:

Windows XP

* Click "Start".
* Open "My Computer".
* Select the "Tools" menu and click "Folder Options".
* Select the "View" Tab.
* Under the "Hidden files and folders" heading select "Show hidden files and folders".
* Make sure "Hide extensions for known file types" is unchecked
* Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.
* Click "Yes" to confirm.
* Click "OK".

Here is a link for further explanation: http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html

Please do a search for this file: CTsvcCDA.exe. If you find this file please give me the "directory path/location" of this file. Let me know in detail if you can find this file.

Restart your computer and then please post a new HijackThis log. :)

Well, my computer had messed up after a power outage, I don't know what might have done it, so I was unable to reply until now. I did take my computer to get fixed since Windows was not booting correctly, and got it back yesterday. I asked what they did to my computer and they said they took it back to how it was mailed to them by the manufacturers or something, and that I would need to reinstall drivers and such. While trying to access a game of mine I was told I either needed to install DirectX 9.0C, which I did, or reinstall drivers. When I go on ATI.com on this computer and click Drivers & Software, the page is not displayed. Although when I go on it my other computer it does. What options do I have to update my drivers?

Dear NeedsHelpFast7897, :tazz:

I would go to your other computer, download the drivers you need to a floppy disk or burn it to a blank CD ROM. Then I would install the drivers in question to your computer that needs these drivers from the floppy disk or CD ROM.

Next, since it appears that your computer in question, had its operating system reinstalled (i.e. windows xp), then I would like to close out this thread, since this forum deals with malware removal.

Please visit the following link: http://www.geekstogo...forum/index.php? , and start a new topic in our "Operatings Systems", "Hardware" or "Software" sections of the Geeks to Go web site. :)
