Hello all, I am currently working on a Windows system that I thought was not working because of malware but, I now believe it is a system error.
I tried to run tweaking.com but unfortunately it hung when it encountered windows defender. The computer  seems clear of any infections and I also ran a sfc scan that did report an error without a fix. I appreciate any response to the issue.

preserve your work file and uninstall your vista system, install WIN7,8, that is more reliable and stable than Vista, one more tip, be careful with the software. some software is a boom, and will blow your computer off

Thanks for the reply auguske. This is not one of my towers and I did want to let you know that I did resolve the problem. I edited the registry and then I was able to run tweaking.com's software successfully. It took care of the problem.  I do agree that the best solution would be to either to purchase a new machine or at least upgrade however, it was a buddy of mine and he just wanted a quick fix.

 

Sincerely,

 

Peter Racine
