I am running Vista home premium 32k on my ACER notebook PC. I have had the PC for 2 years or more now and feel that it needs to be cleaned, mainly because lately the PC has been switching off a lot lately when multitasking. There has definantly been a performance degrade.
So I have done a disk cleanup, cleaned and dusted the inside of my PC especially the fan, I have tweaked the indexing options on the C: as much as possible except I could not get rid of the Internet explorer history that is listed there and I know it should not be there by default, at least I think I do
I also ran a checkdisk /r to which I don't know the result because I did not see where the log file was located but I am assuming that is ok
After that I ran the sfc/ scannow in the command prompt and come up with this result:
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log."
My notebook did not come with a vista cd, it has partition with an istallation image on so I don't know if trying to run a repair with cd would fix my issues. I definitely want to fix this issue so if any kind soul out there has any idea of how we can go about this I will be extremely happy.
