friends pc is acting quite strange, when she 1st boots up its okay, then after a while she cant open anything, and gets a message which says....windows couldnt find the sitedog/pages blah blah blah make sure you typed the name in correctly or click start button and press search

she's run ad-aware, search and destroy, as well as AVG and Pandavision anti virus but nothing seems to work. everything has been updated too.

the pc also freezes completely sometimes, and even crashes.

Click start>run and type sfc /scannow (press enter), note the space. This will repair any corrupt system files.

Download RegScrubXP click here and use it to clean the registry.

You will need to borrow one from somewhere. In the meantime, just try RegScrubXP. (This is only advice, btw, I can't guarantee either will work.)

You could also run CleanUp as well click here to remove all junk files from the system.
