EDIT: I read the terms of posting and theres more than one prob here as i believe they're all linked.
OS: Win Xp (sp2)
totally fresh reinstall with no malware, virus' , adware etc (scanned with several programs)
Right... as mentioned above i reinstalled XP onto the same HDD (totally wiped beforehand) and since then ive had a few probs, one of which was to do with networking and it wouldnt let me view my connections, but thats fixed.
The problems outstanding are:
- An error saying something along the lines of "Generic host proccess win32" when i startup and then it says this program has to close (error report) [note: i did see this on this forum and installed something off the MS knowledge DB but this didnt work]
- sometimes out of the blue my start bar will go from Royale theme to classic windows. god knows why. like i said... no malware or anything! also.. while on the topic of start bar, the language bar keeps coming back no matter how many times i click disable in the "toolbars" menu.
- Windows update : Gets to IE, does the scanning animation (green bar) and doesnt advance any further. Auto updates are on
Sorry about all the problems im normally really good with computers but this one has me stuck... you dont have to tell me how to fix all the problems, just one or two would be good enough!
if you need anything else such as hijackthis logs etc just say.
