Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Run scandisk and defrag from Safe Mode (recommended method)..

Don't let a few bad clusters or sectors worry you. Most hdd's have them.. It's when a scandisk or defrag gets hung up for a peiod of time trying to read or recover that you had better start pricing out new hdd's!!

What are the programs?? What happens when you try to open them??

What is the "runtime" error??

More likely a problem with Windows or the software!!

Sorry, but we do not assist with illegal downloads or the problems they cause..

Nor is the discussion of P2P programs allowed..

This thread will be closed.. If you are still having problems with your system NOT related to your illegal downloads, please feel free to start a new thread!!
