The machine I am having problems with runs XP Pro, has 600-some meg ram, and three hard drives. The main drive works well as does the third drive but the second (first slave) is giving problems. I have ran spychecks, CWshredder, HJT, Trendmicro, Ewido, and I have Kaspersky's firewall and antivirus. In addition, I use the newest version of System Mechanic too.
The drive is running a bit slow. I had it nearly maxed out in space but I went in and took off right much. The hard drive has 80 gig of space and 16 gig free. Each time I try to defrag it, the system freezes up. There are no viruses or spyware that I can find however CWShredder does show I have the JKSearch and Hiddendll although I followed all the steps to remove it as listed on this website. It still will not go away.
Does anyone know what is wrong with my computer's hard drive and how I can fix it?
computer is driving me nuts!
