After completing the above task then Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it.If TFC doesnt prompt a reboot then please do so manually. Post back to me how the computer is running,and what services are running after disabling microsoft services.
