yes the new account will appear after rebooting
I believe (at least at this time) that the freezing is very limited. I have surfed the net and not seeing the major freezing as once before. I do have a another question please. In my start up tool bar I would like to not have superantispyware and drivermax start up and not start up immediately. I'd like to start them up myself but not automatically, how can I change to that. Thank you
You can disable those with Ccleaner and then reboot the only thing that you need starting up with windows is your AV
Okay thank you so much Malnutrition, will do. I'm heading off classes tomorrow, UGH. lol BIG THANK YOU for all your help. If I still have issues tomorrow can I continue to ask for your help? I'm pretty sure I'll need it. lol
no problem post when ready
Many, many thanks for all your help and patients with me this evening. I'll post an update tomorrow as well. Goodnight
Good thread, helped me alot .
Hi Malnutrition. I did experience some freezing today but it's not nearly as bad as before. I'm still doing my updates although and cleaning so I expect things will slowly start to improve. This has truly spared me from having to purchase a "new" machine which on a Student's "income" won't be easy at all.
I know right, me too!! How awesome for us to have such sites and People to help us.
Alright IDK I am left clueless right now. The freezing is back but at this moment I am running AVG anti-virus scan and from time to time it's trying to block certain websites (I don't venture into dangerous sites or anything). I ran the ccleaner today it did it's job, I didn't like comodo anti-virus so i deleted it and got AVG today. UGH I would just like to use my computer without freezing all the time.
Shame you didnt like comodo. Malnutrition covered a mass ammount in this thread and I don't see much that could be offered. Damn shame too it back to normal lockouts. Hmm, You could try uninstalling flash temporary http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html and see that if that makes any difference. I doubt it will but thats all about I can think of.
1.Did you follow the steps below?
1. Right click on My Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager
2. Left click the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers group
3. Right click on Primary IDE and hit Uninstall if there are more than one uinstall all then reboot.
4. Reboot the computer, the Primary IDE drivers will re-install themselves after you reboot.
5. Go back to the Device Manager and Left click the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers group again.
6. Right click on Primary IDE Channel and go to Properties > Advanced Settings tab.

2.Also run the AVG removal tool it is a terrible choice.
3.Reinstall Avast or Avira.
4.Have you created a new profile as of yet?
5.Also have you ran the windows all in one repair tool?
6. Have you run a check disk as suggested?
Please read and answer .
I did step one yesterday. I'll remove AVG and reinstall Avast or Avira. I didn't do create a new profile yet no. I need more information on the windows all in one repair too, please sorry. And yes I ran the check disk as suggested.
Also updating the drivermax to each day until all 12 are complete, doing 2 a day as per the free drivermax stats.
Ok here is info on the all in one tool
I have used it on my machine personally and have suggested it many times it ususally works!
As far as creating a new profile it is possible that sometimes profiles jusr become corrupt and are beyond repair.
So create one and see how that goes.
You can also try an online scan with eset and see how that goes.
Please run a free online scan with the ESET Online Scanner
Disable your antivirus program
Accept any security warnings from your browser.
Check Scan archives
ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
