Just this morning I noticed that whenever I go to another page it will stop loading until I move the mouse then it continue to load. If I don't move my mouse, it stops again. Move the mouse, it will start. Then I noticed that the same thing happens on videos. the video stops and the audio will stop a few seconds later, Move the mouse, it starts up, leave the mouse alone, stops again. I'm using WinXP pro, 2GB ram, P4 3.06GB. Any thoughts?

Try updating your flash player.

Check addons by disabling them to see if one of them is the problem.

Try disabling hardware acceleration.

i would be running "sfc /scannow" from the command prompt, fixes most bugs like this.

I ran the sfc scannow....didn't solve the issue.

I attempted to do this, no"welcome to setup" no "seaching for previous versions" it just installed another copy and now I apparently have 2 versions installed. I want to delete this new installation but don't know how.

System restore... back to before all this started. Will fix the new problem, maybe the old one too.

 

edit:

 

oops, no it won't... It's getting worse here.

 

Did you create a new partition when you installed another copy of Windows?

Does it ask you which installation you want to start when you power on the machine?

Are you sure you installed 2 OS's on the same drive?

I did not create a new partition. It does. Yes I'm sure.

I downloaded Adobe flash.exe and it was infected! It started installing Realplayer, Reg cleaner pro, SpeedupMydisk and 1 other unwanted pgms. Had to run Malwarebytes & SuperAntiSpyware to get rid of everything.

Sorry this has spiraled downhill for you...

 

Now you have 2 OS's. Did you use your factory disks? Do you have the opportunity to select which OS on startup? Do you see a new HDD (OS partition) in your 'my computer'....

 

You may choose to delete your old OS (assuming you answered yes to either of my last two questions), rename the new OS partition to C: and start afresh. Assuming also you used your factory discs, or you will have to download your specific drivers for your machine. This is not a big deal though.

 

Might lose some settings/program files but this trouble will vanish. (assuming it's not a hardware issue, probably not)

 

PS: you will have to use something like Parted Magic to do this.

 

PPS: Make sure you have copied out your docs from C:\users\yourusername\my documents and anything else you might have hanging around on your desktop etc.

Well I just tried some Youtube vids and loading pages and it seems my original issues have been fixed, As an end result I now have 2 OSs on the 1 drive. I would like to delete the new OS and keep the old one. I don't know how to do that though.

I used a slipstreamed copy of WinXP w/SP3 which is what I used to install the original OS.
