Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click optimize and improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


If no change

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.


Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot

When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should and you can check for any improvement

I too am having issues with my computer.

I ran a full sweep using the recommended malware software, which turned up several malicious files, but they have since been cleaned, and I personally have not found any others after repeated scans. I opened a thread several weeks ago in the malware section and have been in the waiting room for a few days but have not had any assistance yet. Nevertheless, I am now beginning to believe there may be an issue with the computer itself.

I have downloaded the Tune Up software and performed several operations designed to speed things up. When running CHKDSK, the computer got to stage four of five at 22 percent and didn't seem to move any more after approximately four hours. I then rebooted. I do recall something similar occurring previously, possibly with CHKDSK.

How much time should a CHKDSK take to completely run?
Being that it seems I may have an error, how do I make a repair?
Should I keep this subject included in my malware thread?
