I have just gone back through all of your posts. I'm sorry you think the help here is selective and that we were unable to assist you. It was not by lack of intent or interest or capability. It is your choice to find another forum site to address your issues. The option to use your recovery CD's has always been there. I am not saying that doing so is a thrill or a picnic. Most of us have the same or similar resources as you do. We helped as best we could. I am one of the Moderators here and I looked back for a second HJT log and didn't see one. Nor do I see any evidence that one had been removed or deleted. Your first log was clean. The problems you are experiencing didn't appear on the log and a second log will have the same result, most likely. There will always be an incident or two where some things can't be fixed, paid or free, unless you do a total recovery. We have all had to do one or two in our time. There are computer techs out there who would love to see your computer for a very large fee. They may be able to fix things, I don't know. They may suggest you update Win98. They may suggest you replace your HD or motherboard, or your fan, or add RAM or 'horsepower'. Our help here is free and unbiased. We don't try to sell you anything you don't need. We have nothing to gain here but your satisfaction. There are several other computer help forums out there. We've checked them all. We've even been members at other sites. Hands down, this is the ONLY site with friendly, caring people. If you think you were unhappy here, try another one. I won't name particular sites but I know of one where people have posted their HJT logs and 2-3 months later, are STILL waiting for help. I saw a forum just last week where someone was desperate for help and posted their log. Several days later, the reply was, "just delete all the things you aren't familiar with". Can you imagine that? That is absolutely insane! But that is not us. We actually care here. Anyway, you bid us adieu and nothing will change that. Good luck in your search for answers. I do hope you find them.
