It all started ever since I used EasyCleaner 2.0 . When I startup I get the loading cursor and it freezes. With no mouse, MouseKeys does not work in Safe Mode. spybotsd always gets an illegal operation when running it, and it is my only spware remover. scanreg/restore does not work, when it did finally work at a 2002 date, it still did not work. Wiping my HD seems to be the only answer/re-installing the OS. How do I do that? I would like to wipe the HD but this all has to be in safe mode....and only the C:\ and A:\ (floppy) drives show up, so I need to wipe the HD. How would I go about doing that??

You might try first reinstalling Windows on top of the current version. You shouldn't lose any programs, data or configurations and it may solve the problem.

EasyCleaner 2.0.6.380(with blacklist #7) is pretty safe to use, as long as you stick with the "Registry" and "Unnecessary" functions and don't use the other functions. I've used it regularly in all 3 of my computers.

Good, but how do I install Windows on top of my current version? I only can use A:\ and C:\ since no others appear in safe mode......what do I do? Call it quits?? Then could someone post at http://s4.invisionf ree.com/mysticforum/ (remove the space) that I won't be back because I need a new computer? Infact, that would be good if someone could do that...

flavalee: I am using the newest version of EasyCleaner, I guess that I used the other functions, infact I think I used the majority of them....:eek:
