I am havinga problem with all web pages, microsoft word infact, everything like control panel etc. The pages load, but the left hand side of the screen is partially off-screen. Examples, web pages, the DONE notification only displays the ..ne, Control Panel, the configure misses out the con....

If there is a bottom slide bar, and I take as far right as I can, it still makes no difference.

It's not really a major problem, just very irritating.

Has anyone else come across this.
Thanks

Thanks Fozzie

Another quick question about uninstalling from add/remove. I have a whole stack on windows updates and I am trying to free up space. It is safe to remove all these updates?

Thanks

No no no..That would be not a good idea

Step one Download Treesize here
and try to identify what is cludding up your PC

Step 2
Download install and update Ccleaner
After installing and updating go to options - advanced and tick prompt for registry back ups
Now Start up in safe mode
Do two runs

1) Click on problems and tick all. Click on analyse. At the end you will be prompted for storing a backup.
This will be stored, as a default, in My documents.
2) Click on cleaner click on analyse and accept all files to be removed.

Postback any major issues

Hi Fozzie

I am having problems with installing TreeSize and unzipping. I use the tool JustZipIt, but it doesn't give me the option of the unzip destination. This is probably a really dump response but where do I find the archive file to unzip from? Basically, I'm stuck with the whole TreeSize thing, but it sounds like just what I need. Additionally, when you said, "try to identify what is cludding up the pc" well, you got me totally lost there. I have read the help file, although it wasn't really all that helpful.

INSTALLATION
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Unzip the archive into a temporary folder, right-click on 'TInstall.inf' and
select "Install". TreeSize is then copied to your Windows directory and appears
in the start menu and in the context menu of every folder and drive.

After unzipping TreeSize use Windows Search feature to locate TInstall.ini.

HI Fozzie

Oh dear, something has gone terribly wrong. I did waht you said, in safe mode etc, and working in safe mode was a dream, - so fast and I thought YES, he's done it, but no, nothing is really working - very very slow , not even task manager wants to work, and even trying to open "my computer" results in that annoying torch searching, which takes forever. What has happened ??? HELP !!

If you used the "issues" button to clean the registry, you need to restore what you removed. hopefully you did backup what you removed.

Right-click on the .REG file created and select 'Merge'.
By default these files will be saved into your 'My Documents' folder.

Hello Nat:

I see you have an HJT thread here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/76950/system-is-totally-messed-up-real-slow/

Please do not install or uninstall programs etc. delete files etc. change the system and so forth without instruction from your HJT helper as this will make it more difficult for him/her to help you. Please inform your helper of the additional difficulties you have been having and what you have been doing about it on your own. When you have been declared clean by your HJT helper and you still have problems, then you can post about them in the other forums.

Hi Fozzie

I still have the same problem with all pages not loading properly, as in missing left side of screen by a few inches or so. It is becoming a problem now as I can't see which options I need to select if they are on the far left. I did everything you suggested, but no luck.

I also still want to use the TreeSize but can't seem to do what it says:

Unzip the archive into a temporary folder, right-click on 'TInstall.inf' and
select "Install". TreeSize is then copied to your Windows directory and appears
in the start menu and in the context menu of every folder and drive.


Do I download it and save as or what? Also, am still unsure of where/what the "context menu" is.

Thanks :thumbsup:
