I used the advance mode for system information, scanned the inner workings of my system. I was amazed at what was found. Partially deleted programs, partially installed programs, old hardware, old software, a bunch of junk.
Thinking I had hit paydirt, of course I let spybot delete the junk.
Well what an idiot I am!!
I restart my computer, and ba-da-boom ba-da-bing I can't do anything! I have no memory available to open this, not enough to open that. Nothing would finish loading on start up. My Dell system has no way of going back to a previous day of operation to wipe out my major boo-boo. So I figure, ok, I will undo what I had done. So I go the the spyboy, reinstall all the stuff I did. Doing this however is a BIG mistake, because, there were some BAD stuff that had been deleted, and now was being installed onto the computer. For example a web toolbar that eats up memory like nobodies business. It took all night to get that off the computer! Which was difficult because it started on start up, and then ate the memory, so I couldn't open the control panel.
So ....... I dont' know what to do. I have altered the start up, so only a few programs open .
Internet explorer will not work.
Help will not display the information, so I can't troublshoot or link to anything
Find will not find
I can get my Netzero to connect, and get the Netscape to open.
AIM will open, but not the buddy screen window, no IM, etc.
