First things first...E Machine with 80g hard drive, a few years old now, Windows XP of course and running Firefox.
The hard drive was nearly full mostly with my daughters music, videos and photos.
In fact the defrag would not work properly because there was not enough space to operate, so it said.
I had my daughter, well actually a friend of hers came over and used a hard drive from another computer to tranfer all the music, videos and photos out of my computer and into this hard drive.
In turn my daughter then sent all of the stuff she hard to the recycle bin.
After all was said and done, now the computer will not load at all in certain areas...namely ebay and youtube as an example.
Everything worked fine up to the point when she deleted her stuff.
So I'm guessing something that my daughter eventually deleted or sent to the recycle bin was something I need to properly run these programs or websites I go to.
What happens on ebay is I can get to the website and log in but to look at an item for sale, I put the curser over the item description and hit it and nothing happens...just says it is loading...item never comes up...never.
Also on youtube...I can get to the website but when going to watch a video it will not work, just a blank screen and nothing happening.
I'm sure this is happening elsewhere but haven't ventured much since these particular items are becoming irritating.
What I have done so far is run ccleaner, defraggler, avast virus scan, all of the Norton repair programs and most recently I tried to put all of my daughters stuff from her recycle bin back into the system. Still nothing works.
On this e-machine we can have 3 separate users and we do, with 3 separate recycle bins too.
I tried getting on ebay from her user screen with the same results.
I guess I've given enough info to receive some type of help, hopefully.
Maybe there is some program or such that can be downloaded back into our computer that will bring everything back to normal.
Maybe firefox needs to be uninstalled?? and then reinstalled??
Also my system restore has been turned off for some time now...and besides, I could never get it to work anyways.
One more thing...I have getting many popups since this all happened, before this prob. never got any popups with firefox.
Thanks for any help,
