Hi folks!

Was running some maintenance on a computer and I'm having an odd problem.

I ran it through the works, Panda AV, Adaware, spybot, disk cleanup....

and I found when I'd reboot, the graphics would be all Kaflooey. It would be stuck at the lowest resolution (and not allow me to change) with the chunky colors. I checked the drivers for the monitor and card, and they all checked out.

To make a long story short, after some trial and error, I found that only when I removed the Temporary Internet files would this problem occur.

I can fix it by doing a window restore, and all the other spyware/AV programs can run successfully, but I can't touch the Temp files.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Somehow I doubt if ccleaner will do the trick because ccleaner will clean out the temp files thus causing the problem to re-occur.

I would suggest go into safe mode and then device manager and check out how many display adapter drivers there are in there and remove all of them even if there is only one remove it then exit out normally by clicking OK as many times as necessary then reboot and let windows re-install the display driver or video driver which ever you want to call it.

I would also get the latest video driver from the manufacturer of the video card and then install that one.

When done go delete the temp files and see if your system still does the same thing.
