    My computer had a "buffer overrun detected" warning box a few months ago, i think i got rid of that but now my computer is slow and i can not click on any programs open in the task bar. this gets incredibly annoying as you may understand. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    you get an answer if you give some details to work on


    Download to Desktop: DDS by sUBs from one of these locations:

    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.com
    http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/dds.scr
    http://www.forospyware.com/sUBs/dds

    double click DDS.scr to run

    When complete, DDS.txt will open.

    Click Yes for Optional Scan.
    Save both reports to your desktop.
    DDS.txt
    Attach.txt

    Attach the contents of both logs back here.

    Now my computer is running super slow. a lot of programs will start but then take a few minutes to load to a point where i can use them. sometimes firefox will not start for a few minutes.

    see what this shows

    Download RSIT (random's system information tool) from here to your desktop, then click on the RSIT.exe to start the scan.

    If necessary allow it to locate or download a copy of HijackThis as needed.

    Once the scan completes a textbox will open - copy/paste those contents here for review please. The log can also be found at C:\rsit\log.txt.

    RSIT will also create a second log, info.txt, which will be minimized to your taskbar. Post that here as well please (it will also be stored at C:\rsit\info.txt).

    You can use separate posts here when replying and posting the log files if needed.

    for windows to work well it needs 20% minimum free space on a hard disc

    uni nstall unwated or unused programs or remove downloaded musinc etc . move those to an external g-=hard disc or burn to cd/dvd

    you need to get about 30gb of space back to let windows work
