I have recently cleaned-up my computer on this forum, but have had some issues again. When I last finished with "Gringo" he asked me to do the following after our last session:

This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

•Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

•Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.

•Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr

•choose your root drive (normally C:)

• after it calculates how much space you will save it will open up a new window

•Select the More options tab at the top of the window

•Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.

• go back to the disk clean up tab

• put a checkmark in all - except compress old files (leave this unchecked)

• click Ok then click yes


The problem is that my system does not let me do things the way it is described above. When I get in the restore point software, it jus wants to restore my whole computer instead of a point and I don't continue.

Anyhow I thought I would mention that incase that may be the source of my problems.

I did not wany to bother "Gringo" again directly so I posted this to get some help. Gringo was very helpful but the post had timed out before I could get back to it.

Hello Adamsapple.

It is not that the post timed out. But that after a period of time Malware Removal Team members will close threads failure to feed back from the Member they were assisting.

If you read the last post in the thread,
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic390050.html/page__view__findpost__p__2220590
it states that you need to PM him should problems persist. Which they seem to be.
