I had a problem with desktop doctor from comcast and was trying to remove it from my add/remove programs, but it freezes when I try to remove it. It won't let me just delete it from my files either. It says it is use, but it's not. I tried doing system restore but it won't go beyond Sunday. I need help.

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, press start up, remove any ticks for desktop doctor, click apply and reboot, remove desktop doctor, then return to msconfig, on the general tab, put the dot in normal start up, click apply then reboot

It wasn't checked but I unchecked everything just in case. It didn't help.

Use move on boot

http://www.snapfiles...moveonboot.html

Start it from all programmes then drag the files into the box, you might get the option to delete on next boot if you right click the files

Make sure you have set normal start up in msconfig
