Downloaded SmitfraudFix & followed your instructions. It worked perfectly, and now, several hours later, my computer is (touch wood) still delightfully clear.

Thanks to all who had a hand in developing this solution. How could I not go from here to the 'Donate' page?

Hi atticdust... Welcome .. Glad to hear it's fixed. Don't forget to reset your Restore points so you don't accidentally restore back to misery...

To clear existing restore points

1.Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click System Restore.

2.Click to add a check mark beside Turn off System Restore on all Drives, and click Apply.

3.When you are warned that all existing Restore Points will be deleted, click Yes to continue.

All system restore points are deleted. Now you should manually create a restore point.

1.Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click System Restore.

2.Click Create a Restore Point, and then click Next.

3.Name your restore point. [I use the date as well as a descriptive term such as "Clean Restore Point."]
