Hi I have been having a lot of problems with Norton360, CCleaner, word and other programs freezing lately. I tried a system restore but it has been stuck at "please wait while your windows files and settings are being restored System restore is restoring the registry" for over 8 hours. Gringo helped meremove some maleware a few weeks ago and recomended I ask what to do here. Thanks

sorry. I should add that these problems started after installing winpstrol. I uninstalled it (with a little bit of trouble) but the problems are still there
