I guess I'm lost at what your problem is. Does your computer boot? Does it freeze during booting or after it is on for a while. Are you able to get on the internet and get to C-net with the computer?
You could have spyware, but the programs you have should be able to get rid of most of it. You let it run and delete any spyware. You might have to run it a couple of times?
I've been reading the forums for the last 2 hours.I thought i needed a registry cleaner, but now i don't know what i need. I purchased "Registry Patrol" yesterday (heard of it?) Haven't been able to use because i failed to click my way thru to my code! So they say! I've emailed them twice and no response. They said it could take up to 24hours for a new code in which they have 15 mins. left. I wish i had seen cnet before this i might have saved myself aggravation. My problems have been error crashing blue screen, sluggish pc, now freezing. I have Nortons, which i really would like to know why everyone is uninstalling? Adaware personel, avg spyware. I just recently uninstalled spybot. Just would like to get on track. Any advice....I recently took it to a pro service, said there was spyware and a mild virus undetected. seemed quick then went back to previous state. I guess what i'm looking for is could it be the registry? I did notice when i last ran spy bot there were files like "orbit explorer" and"surfside kick" things i've never looked up. Supposingly there a form of spyware. But how do you get it out of the system? or even find it for that matter? Thanks for your time!
