Hi and welcome. Has she made any changes to the system lately? Added a SCSI card perhaps?

Ok, then, let's try this. Restart, tap the F8 key, chose command prompt only.

Once there, type scanreg/restore and hit enter.

You should have a date for yesterday or the day prior. Choose that to restore, then reboot.

HOWEVER....BE SURE that she hasn't made any changes or added any new hardware!

No hardware changes, she did add and uninstall a program that was supposed to help fix the problem but didnt.

Also, does restoring mean the comp is no longer defragged after defragging it today?

No, restoring only means a good registry was restored.....also, any programs that she may have installed in the meantime will need to be reinstalled again...basically anything that writes to the registry.
