I recently updated xp with sp3 and I now have a dodgy PC.Ihave run mwbytes and Spybot but nothing has been detected.Can I rescue this by cleaning registry and by restoring deleted files.I may have inadvertantly inflicted some self harm.What is the best way to use a cleaner such as Glary Utilities?Many thanks John
I am unable to carry out system srtore and can no longer access the internet.The task manager does not display completely and performs differently depending upon which of the five account holders is opened.I would be grateful for some help as I becoming desperate and frustrated john
I would run Malawarebytes in safe mode. Also download and run Superantispyware (free) - sometimes these each find things the other has missed.Re registry cleaners, I would only use CCleaner myself as others can be more trouble than they are worth.You could get a friend to download SAS and put it on a memory stick to install that way if you cant get on the net.
I have tried this method but when I scan it does complete.SAS experts tell me to untick three kernels but when I attempt to access this the PG freezes-it really is peculiar.Ican identfy adware but because the scan is incomplete I cannot remove.And there may be other items not yet detected.Any ideas please John
Regarding your question about Glary Utilities, I've been using it for a while with no real problems, so I'd suggest running "I click maintenance" with everything but Tracks Eraser selected and let it do its thing. I'd also go to the Windows Standard Tools in the System tools section module and run Checkdisk & if you've got a suitable Windows XP disk, System File Checker.
