I have a Dell Dimensions 3000 system that I installed windows 7 on for a friend.  The system has a Pentiume 4 3.00 GHz processor and 2 gb of ram.


It ran fine for about 8 months, and then started having problems.  There was lots of malware etc on the system.  I used MalewareBytes and some other tools.  The system still had is had issues.  It would reboot while attempting to access gmail etc.


I ran some tools to check for bootkits and then did a fresh install of Windows 7 32 bit.  It seemed to be running okay.  I installed all the available Windows updates and now it is having issues.


While attempting to install Adobe Acrobat Reader, an error message pop-up stating "Error 1335. The cabinet file 'Data1.cab' required for this installation is corrupt and cannot be used . . ."


When I attempting to save a notepad line of text, notepad stopped working.


IE 10 also crashes frequently.


Any suggestions as to how I should proceed?
