The past week or so, I found I got the notice "class not registered" with a big red X, when trying to open Device Mgr,Task Scheduling, Task bar and Start. The Mouse program will no longer open, and arrow-pointer develops a nasty looking maroon blob of a shadow. When I could open the mouse program, I was removing the shadow, click apply, and OK. It would stay gone awhile, but ultimately appear. Mouse is Logitech cordless, but the logitech program appears not to be the cause. Have had cordless 6 months w/ no problems.
These problems started happening after the Vista updates of Dec 9. At the same time I was testing Avant, and Maxthon browsers. Both have been uninstalled, and I went back to Win IE 7, as before.
I have run avira, superantispyware, malware bytes, Dr Web cureit, spybot. 2 trojan downloaders quarantined. Have run chkdsk/r a few times.Have run sfc scannow.Repaired some files, some couldn't repair. Never able to see log, for details.
Now bel arc advisor won't open
Any help would be appreciated.
