Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my computer after doing a fresh install of Windows 7 yesterday. I was running Ubuntu on my laptop for a year but, I felt I needed a change, so I did a fresh install of Windows 7 and everything seemed to be working fine. I downloaded Chrome and Firefox, and shortly after I started to notice that everything was force-closing and crashing after minimal use. I had to restart it several times to no avail because after only about 3 minutes of use, the computer will start crashing and freezing. It did not do this while I was running Ubuntu, it was actually rather quick and I was satisfied with it. Someone on another forum recommended downloading CCleaner and checking for registry errors. Well I did that exactly and quite a few registry errors popped up. CCleaner's solution to these registry errors is to delete the entries, and so I do but, only a while after they will appear again. The error appears on CCleaner like this:

"The file C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\system.configuration.install.dll is referenced as a Shared DLL and doesn't exist. These are often left behind after uninstalling software."

Also, I don't know if this related but, I also cannot install any programs such as iTunes, or OpenOffice. I can perfectly install programs like CCleaner, Firefox, and Chrome, but I can't install programs like iTunes and OpenOffice. OpenOffice gave me an error saying that "the system cannot read from the specified device".

Can someone please help?

I'm really confused and frustrated, any help is appreciated.

And if it matters, here is the computer information.


Laptop Model: Acer Aspire 5335

Installed Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB

System Type: 64-Bit Operating System

Processor: Genuine Intel® Cpu

Windows Edition: Windows 7 Ultimate


Thanks in advance.

I'm going to request a moderator to move this topic to Am I Infected for a check to see if there's malware on your system.
