Phillywells, Excellent-although I don't expect the system sweeper to find anything.

I'd say we need another approach to your problem.

Could you help us out and fluff out your System Specs?

Here's a procedure to guide you.

UPDATE YOUR SEVENFORUMS SYSTEM SPECS


User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |
in left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec |


Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

Excellent! Thanks.

Now I don't think that MagicISO is the source of your problems, but could you delete MagicISO till we have located the problem?

I tried MagicISO and found the program to be interfering.

I liked some of the features but I would recommend to anyone to use it to accomplish an objective and then immediately uninstall it.

Which anti-virus are you presently using?

If at all possible, until the source of the problem is located, remove and anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall program that you have installed if it is not from Microsoft. That means, use Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Firewall and the Security Center defaults.

Would you please download, install and run CCleaner (link in my sig). CCleaner is free. Don't get tricked into clicking on the buy buttons.

AFter cleaning, then follow this procedure:
LIST OF STARTUP PROGRAMS USING CCLEANER


CCleaner | Tasks icon | Startup tab | click on Save to text file button (bottom right side)

Using the PAPER CLIP icon in the top panel of a Message Reply window, attach the .txt file generated by CCleaner.

Ok i got rid of MagicISO and I dont have any anti virus programs installed right now. Microsoft Security Essentials wont start and im guessing its because the Security Center and the Microsoft Antimalware services keep getting disabled automatically when i try to turn it on. Windows Firewall works fine though.

philly,
| MSCONFIG | ENTER | STARTUP tab |
uncheck ALL except for:
Sidebar C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe /autoRun
MSC "c:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" -hide -runkey

RESTART your computer.

In the Start Menu, If you select All Programs, do you see an entry for Microsoft Security Essentials?

If yes, then click on it.

I've put a call out for assistance as I find your case unusual. I must be missing the obvious.
