    Wow really?

    How about this....
    Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.
    Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
    Press the Launch button.
    A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
    Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.

    Sweet! :)

    Let's see if it cooperates now.

    Rescan with HijackThis.
    Close all browser windows except HijackThis.
    Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked"

    O2 - BHO: My Web Search Bar BHO - {8EAB99C1-F9EC-4b64-A4BA-D9BCAE8779C2} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearchWB\bar\1.bin\W6BAR.DLL (file missing)

    Close HijackThis and reboot.

    How are things running? I still see a few things we could disable in Startup such as:

    [Sidebar] C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe /autoRun
    [Yahoo! Pager] "C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe" -quiet
    [ehTray.exe] C:\Windows\ehome\ehTray.exe
    [Search Protection] C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Search Protection\SearchProtection.exe
    [YSearchProtection] C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Search Protection\SearchProtection.exe

    Well, I am beginning to think this computer is just older than dirt. I am sure I am cleaning up lots of nasty little buggers, but it's not running any faster :-( Thing is though although its old, it has just started running like this the past month or two, not like the past year where tons of stuff could have been added. Here is the new log:

    That could leave a few options. Either adding more memory to it. Or wiping it completely clean and starting fresh. (or doing both)

    I suppose that would depend if you really wanna invest money into an old machine. We could check prices of memory.

    What brand computer is it?

    It's an old acer. We have memory, but it probably wouldn't do anything. Years ago we knew somebody who built and fixed computers and he did a few. We have some towers laying aruond, but I"m sure they aren't big enough to do anything. It would be about the time xp was popular
    As for wiping it clean, guess I would need the main cd for that, and it could take me years to find it :)
    Im guessing the CHEAPEST computer we could find would still be better than this one.

    True true, although adding more memory couldn't hurt. Do you know how much you have? and hopefully it's compatible with that machine.

    As for the CD, there's a chance the machine may have a recovery partition. Do you have the model # of the Acer? I can look it up.

    we tore apart the old computer to look, and I don't know anything about it, but I doubt our memory will do ANY good unless we had a 100 of them. They were 64 mb. I warned you this was from 2000 or xp days. :)

    Sorry I've been M.I.A. today. I had a tooth pulled this morning. :(

    With Acers, they usually have a recovery partition built in. If you boot the machine and press ALT + F10 at the same time, you will enter a recovery phase that will give you the option of restoring to factory settings. This basically wipes everything out and brings the computer back to the state you first bought it in.

    Of course it's completely up to you if you wanna go that route. If you have any important data on there, I would back it up first if you decide to proceed with the recovery.

    OOppss, sorry there. I don't know how to "back up" things. I talked to hubby and itune info is about the only thing he doesn't wanna lose. I can reinstall a virus protector, office, and malware stuff. Can I just throw the entire folder in a flash drive then install again?

    ok i'll try it when i get home or tomorrow. when i restore it, or whatever you told me to do a few posts ago which I will follow, that's gonna give me everything i need to actually get started, right? Then I will just have to throw an anti virus, office, etc?
    I have heard SOOO many different things . YOu can see by my posts, not that you need to do it right now or soon, anything I should download right away or things I should change?
