Quite a few of us would like to help, however it's usually next to impossible without any info. If you have a look on my profile you'll see what info we really need.
It may be a good idea to do the same yourself, but don't forget to update it when you update your system. At least that way when you need help - and we all do at times - all you need to do is say "for system specs, see my profile", and we'll know where to get the data.
windows XP SP2
ok, this all started when i install spysweeper newest version, i have read many things about this newer version after i installed it, that it was messing up peoples computers, freezeing them and what not. I have contacted spysweeper and they gave me a tool to completly remove it from my system, i did that, still had issues, so i don't even use spysweeper anymore.My problem: computer will take its time loading programs, Norton virus, opens but is blank in the area with all the info,internet explorer doesn't work but firefox works fine for the internet, computer will eventually lock up and I have to push the restart button,loads up with the same issues,some programs don't even come intill later when trying to start them, when i try to restart, it freezes on "saving your settings" part, so i have to push the restart button again, windows media doesn't work, some programs work others don't and just get locked up, what is funny is that after all the rebooting it sometimes goes back to normal and its works like its suppose to,Fast as ever like it never had any probelms, IE works everything runs amazing. so its off and on issue, I have cleaned everything out of my registry that says spysweeper or webroot, still has issues and I have no idea what this is, i have scan for virus, nothing...windows defender..nothing...clean up utlities--nothing...I have no idea why its off and on and not all the time....i have been battling with this since i installed that newer version of spysweeper...what else can i do? please help!
