disc cleanup cleaned 1.62 mb
registry cleanup 914 problems fixed
defrag and reboot. Reduced the registry by 5% (2088kb)
After reboot (still slow) It said successfully defragmented.
Then Windows installer came on saying "preparing to install". After about 30 seconds this popped up: "Norton 2005 does not support the repair feature, please uninstall and reinstall." I had Norton disabled the whole time. I don't really fancy uninstalling Norton but will if necessary. Thoughts?

Section 2 and the download link is just under number 3
When you have done this you can re-install
Norton could be the cause though it probably went wrong with the repair errors, do you have a CDRW / DVDRW Drive to back up the data on the PC

So I need to go to add/remove programs and remove Norton? Then go to the link you posted?

The data to back up would be documents, pictures, e-mail and any other files / programmes you cannot replace
My instinct is that as the repair did not go to plan, the errors will continue to make their presence known, so a clean start would be good
You could be lucky and run the repair again without getting the errors, especially as Tune Up cleared a few

If re-installing Norton and the repair do not improve this then you will be as quick to offload the lot / format and also write zeros to the drive and re-installing, which I hope you do not need to do

Make sure you do all the suggestions on the Malware forum here. It found a lot of junk on my computer that probably started this whole thing... Good luck, Carol

I still plan to uninstall Norton Antivirus. Then I will reinstall Windows again. Then reinstall the Norton. I have a lot of other things going on right now and need the computer working so it may be a week or so until there is enough time...

I decided to just use AVG instead of Norton (even though I had just paid for it, darn). I now have Spy-bot, and Spyware blaster. The computer is running great. I think I have learned my lesson and won't be fiddling around with the computer settings so much. LOL Thanks for all the help Geeks to Go.
