First time posting.. Basically in the last 2 days I have had real issues with my HP ZV6170CA laptop. Running XP with SP3 and have been since the upgrade was out.
The problem has been just today and yesterday that I cannot run any of my registry utilities such as MaxSecure or even edit options on Trackseraser Pro without the program window just hanging. I can't shut the program down at all even by trying to end the process from the task manager. I have F-Secure as the antivirus/firewall software that came from my ISP if that helps. But I was going to install a copy of Comodo antivirus to see if it would catch anything extra, and it won't load to install. It shows in the task manager as present, but nothing happens.
I have run scans for viruses, nothing to report. My SpyBot S&D doesn't show any malware either. The most concerning is that it will not run the software off my backup drive Redemption. I started the unit in Safe Mode and everything works much more reliably and no hangs.
How do I find some information on troubleshooting this?
Thanks in advance!
