First of all I want to thank everyone who has had anything to do with all of the help topics in here. I am not too computer savvy when it comes to cleaning stuff up and this site has been amazing. I am definately going to start donating to some of these sites. They saved me a bundle I am sure. I have been following all the steps to cleaning up my CPU but I am coming across one last problem. When I run my AD-Aware SE it seems to not be running when it gets to a specific folder or something "FOUND.000". Is that a virus or something keeping it from progressing. It will just sit there for hours. Any help would be great.

Thanks,
"E"

No I did not. Does that make a difference?... I guess it does if you suggested it. So run it just the same as if I wasnt in safe mode? Then just reboot at the end?

No I did not. Does that make a difference?.

The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Hackers know this so they will write malware that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using Safe Mode reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using anti-malware tools, Scandisk, Chkdsk, Defrag, & Disk Cleanup in Safe Mode also speeds up the scanning process.
