    Hi there, recently my computer has been acting a bit odd. When I turn it on it starts up like normal, I input my password and it starts loading everything. But once everything is loaded at the start up the taskbar freezes and so does the rest of the desktop. I can move my mouse but it does nothing and I'm not able to open the taskmanager at all with ctrl+alt+del. The computer runs fine in safe mode. I've already gone through and cleaned up my system, fixed any registry problems, and defragged my hdd. I've scanned for any malware and came up with nothing. I've disabled all non-necessary programs in msconfig for startup. I've been able to do a system restore to about a week ago, and that would fix the problem for a bit, but it would happen again if the computer went into sleep mode. The restore point is gone so I can't do that anymore. I've had the computer for about a year and a half and this is the first time anything like this has happened to it. Can anybody help with my problem?

    Here is a bit of my system information:

    Windows 7 Home Premium
    Service Pack 1
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 645 Processor 3.11 GHz
    RAM: 4.00 GB (3.75 GB usable)
    System: 64-bit OS

    leave the registry alone windows does a good job looking after it

    registry cleaners do more damage than fixes


    sfc /scannow
