CCLEANER | TOOLS icon | STARTUP tab | SCHEDULED TASKS tab |
Use DISABLE button to disable ALL

REBOOT!

You have not disabled any programs. You have disabled the scheduled running.
Later, after your system is running smoothly, you may reenable desired programs.


I recommend uninstalling any programs that are non-essential.

REBOOT!

Okay, all scheduled tasks are disabled and computer is rebooted.

Not sure what some of these are, particularly the Microsoft ones with the names that are just a string of numbers and letters, like "{27297381-C639-4B45-BC31-83B10DD2FAAA}". Also not sure what the specific function of the CCleaner task is. The other three make sense (Adobe Updater and Google Update, though on the Google one I'm not sure why there are two of them).

Thanks.

Please run this script which will put a file on your desktop.

Upload that file please.

Here is how to run the PowerShell script followed by the script.
# **********************INSTRUCTIONS**************************
# STEP 1 *****************************************************
# RUN PowerShell as administrator
# WIN key | type POWERSHELL | do NOT hit ENTER |
# in the resulting PROGRAMS list, right-click on WINDOWS POWERSHELL |
# choose "Run as administrator" from the resulting list
# Click on the YES button (if such appears)
#
# WIN key = key with Microsoft log on top
# for the guru:
# WIN key | type POWERSHELL | CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER key combo | ALT+Y keycombo
# ************************************************************
# STEP 2 *****************************************************
# COPY, using CTRL+C, every line of script down thru both EXIT statements
# PASTE into Powershell
#----Right-Click at the PowerShell Prompt
#----(Ctrl+V does not work)
# Start copying with first line without a # at start of the line
# Note: Actually, you can paste the entire file if you rather
#-------Lines starting with a # are ignored by PowerShell
# ************************************************************
# ***************** NOTE - POWERSHELL VERSION*****************
# if you receive this error msg:
#--Get-WinEvent: The system can not find the path specified
# you need to update your PowerShell
# you must be using Powershell 2.0 or later.
#
# To determine your Powershell version:
#---Run PowerShell
#---enter $host.version
#---you should see at least:
# Major Minor Build Revision
# ----- ----- ----- --------
# 2......0......-1.....-1
#
# If you do not see the above, update your Vista/Win 7.
# ************************************************************
# *************** NOTE - EXECUTION POLICY*********************
# If you haven't set the execution policy, you may need to:
#---Run PowerShell
#---enter Set-ExecutionPolicy -executionpolicy remotesigned
