A little glitch. Seems no matter what type of antivirus or antispyware program I try to run, it just never gets to the part where I could actually fix anything.
Ad-aware gets to the place where it says I have maybe 28 registry keys, 1 file, and 1 folder with issues and then it "stops responding."
Spybot starts up all right but then it just runs and does nothing. Where the green progress bar should appear, it just stays empty and white.
Tried running my Norton Antivirus. It found 5 adware type files, but wasn't able to fix or delete any of them.
So, I went to PC Pitstop. When I first tried to run the full system test there a box popped up that said:
"16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications.
Choose close to terminate the application."
I hit close and the PC Pitstop test ran. I got a red flag on Security in the results. Tried running the autofix, but it hung up.
Then I went to Trend Micro for the Housecall. That also wouldn't run for me. Gets just so far and then nothing.
My computer runs, but seems very slow sometimes. Other times it's fine. Did I mention that it was a bear getting Disk Cleanup to run? Every site I go to recommends running this or that program to get rid of trouble, but that isn't too helpful when everything I try to run freezes up. Any other ideas????
