If it's as bad as you say, then I would be inclined to format and do a clean install of OS.

ditto on that lotvic

I never advocate a clean install

Allways repair the thing

  User-312386 22:04 19 Apr 2005

oh yes you can

with a little help from people (nellie and you woodchip) you should never have to re-install

When it gets that bad I think it's easier to reinstall a IMAGE file, But I no that most do not know what one of those are

  User-312386 22:34 19 Apr 2005

lol

Of course we know "what one of those are"

Acronis True Image Springs to mind
