I am having trouble getting programmes to open after being on the internet. Whenever I try all I get is the arrow and egg timer, the arrow and nothing else. To open a programme I have to press the reset button. I have noticed that the dard disc light keeps flickering. I have run Adaware, Spybot search and destroy Windows defender and AVG virus checker. The spyware discovered was deleted with no viruses.Before writing this plea for help I tried opening a programme and 5 minutes later it opened on top of this page. I am using XP Pro with SP2. I hope that the explanation given is clear. Can anyone help?
Run Disc cleaner as well.What one misses the other will get.This should speed it up.The fault you describe is not always that something has gone wrong,maybe it just needs more regular housekeeping.Apologies in advance if you have already done this.
