I have a computer that I did a full reinstallment to clear up a system32 error. The only programs I added were:

1. Sygate Firewall
2.AVG anti virus
3.Spybot

After downloading the first installments of window updates and error popped up on my screen after restart:

Message from SYSTEM to ERROR

WINDOWS has found CRITICAL SYSTEM ERRORS

To fix errors download registry repair from: http://www.fixmyreg.com

My computer is definitely running slow but is it because of these errors? I didn't want togo to the site unless I really needed to.

Thanks River Rat. I tried to download the other programs but kept getting Corrupt: check Chkdsk Utility.

Should I try a full system reinstall?

Chkdsk is a winXP utility.
Could mean your hard drive needs a look over after your fresh install.
Did you run it?

you can by typing those letters into the Run on your Startlist Menu

start button>run>chkdsk (type in case-not-sensitive) and OK

You can try to run the CheckDisk and see if it will fix things to run the cleaning programs but a format and reinstall may be best if you don't have any files that you need to save.

Error Checking can be run from a GUI...
1. In My Computer or Windows Explorer, right-click the drive you want to
check and then click Properties.
2. On the Tools tab, click Check Now.
3. Check both boxes:


X Automatically fix file system errors
X Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors


You have to reboot for Error-checking to run.

You're Welcome

Be sure to run the cleaning programs to make sure you didn't get infected.

Which firewall? If you have SP2 you can adjust Windows firewall. The idea of this is so that you have minimal protection to set up internet access. If you have a different firewall, you can nearly always configure it to allow a connection gateway, or at least put a temporary lock. I also do not understand how this could prevent you loading modem software. This is different to connecting with dial-up once the software is installed.

Your computer should recognize the broadband connection by using "make a new connection" in start/settings/dialup and network connections.

The cable modem is a network connection.

Your "Bigpond" software is probably for a proprietary browser, their online email, etc.
