Else you will spend weeks to fix it and it will still not be fixed.
Surely any decent operating system ought to protect the user from this sort of slow and irreversible deterioration? I cannot believe that it is really necessary to reinstall the OS and all the applications every couple of years to achieve decent performance. If it is, then this ought to be the most popular research topic in all the computer science departments in all the top unis of the world. It is extremely difficult for me to reinstall everything, As I explained, I install a large number of applications in the course of my work, and having to reinstall them all is an extremely daunting task.

Of course it depends on personal preferences and circumstances. But many geeks reinstall their system maybe once per year. In a corporate environment that may not be practical, but I know of cases where this is done too.

In any case, it is up to you what you do and hopefully you will not brick your system in the process. Then we'll have a loyal new customer.

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
