OK, I have been able to "rescue" all of my portable PCs and am now at my home desktop. This machine is just whacked out.
I will downoad and run Minitoolbox and post here. The machine crashed way back on Sept 9th when I left town on a long vacation. My housekeeper told me it "did something strrange". I told her to shut it off.
I seem to have a lot of stuff wadding up the Hard Drive. I tried removing all the AVG stuff with Revo like worked for my other two portables. Sysytem Restore didn't work. Windows repair didn't work.
Anyway It's a mess.
