Ok, uninstalled everything suggested except dup cleaner and I uninstalled slimcleaner.

restarted, but locking up office to leave, so I did one of the security checks again and attached log to see if you can ascertain anything, because I am consistently getting I don't administrative rights error at start up (that was since the beginning of the problem).

Tomorrow when I'm using this laptop, I'll be able to report back any problems further.

Thanks in advance.

You have UAC disabled, please re-enable it. I suggest setting it to the highest setting. Always notify. You can find this under start- Control panel. System and security. Change user account control settings.

Doing this will greatly increase the security of your system. Uac is a very important feature that should not be disabled.

You will get prompted when installing software and changing windows settings, but even though its one more click do not let it annoy you. Read each prompt and make sure you are opening and doing what you want it to do.

Thanks Andrew, I did, but everytime I log on, I get an error message that I don't have administrative privileges and if I want to restart to enable if I am an administrator (I am on this computer). when I click yes, desktop shell just refreshes. I am always getting this error.

Don't know why...but what I really would love to know is what caused all of this in the first place. Like I said, I downloaded the "Download App" from Cnet which was supposed to update programs...of course I trusted it, it's Cnet after all...then kablooie...

Saw they have an updated version (not downloading it of course) with fix to dll...someone might want to check that out and warn others against using the "download app" from cnet if it was the culprit...

No need to thank me my friend...as I said, you're my Guru (bowing profusely) and my Yoda (thankfully not as cryptic).

So to update, I have the UAC problem I cited above, but so far, no memory hogging and no freezes...but have to start using the computer for editing some stuff, so I am hoping that I can test all of my programs to ensure they are working.

Let me know if there are any kinds of scans I should run (still have to do the eset scan) to satisfy that system is running smoothly and malware free and system files are in order.

Bowing profusely again oh wise one.

Right now, I'd like you to download TFC and run it.
TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

Next, download DDS from one of these links:
Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post reply.

Ok, I ran TFC and once again instead of prompting for a reboot, it opened up "libraries" again. That notwithstanding, I restarted, ran the DDS and here are the log files
