Have you tried cancelling Windows Restore - then running the adaware then closing down booting back up and checking it. If its not doing it reinstate Restore.

There's something seriously wrong with your Computer - I will have to recommend a complete Format. Backing up Folders is obviously going to need to happen but check the folders over for programs before you save them and view them with Hidden Files showing just incase.

Hullo Atomix; you've been off for a long time? I got a new Forum if you're interested; much more updated and everything since last time Greathanc Forums.

Why have you been away for so long then?
