If doing that does make any difference you might like to install a different one, because there are AV's out there that will interfere with other stuff and some that I think are absolute rubbish.

Specs are above in an earlier reply. Using Microsoft Security Essentials which hopefully shouldn't interfere with another Microsoft program.

See this mate How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

I keep the tool on my taskbar for ease of use and because I use it a lot. Once the detail has been snipped and saved to say the desktop (or Pictures - I give them a distinctive title to make finding them easy) - then it is just a matter of opening that pic and right click open with Paint and make the changes you like and then save the result back to where it was stored to use as an attachment.

Hi Gozo,
system restore uses the MBR via the vss service to create restore points,
now if its here, from your report
Partition 0
Partition ID Disk #0, Partition #0
File System NTFS
Volume Serial Number B0233EC3
Size 11.7 GB
Used Space 11.4 GB (97%)
Free Space 311 MB (3%)

It will clear it as there is insufficient space
(i take it that restore is on E.

Roy

Does Ccleaner also have an option to clear restore points, its on your system!!!

E is a protected drive which was on the computer when I got it. It's never been used. I think you have to do a show hidden files to gain access to it which I've never done. I would have thought that System Restore was on the C Drive and when I right click and click advanced I get the following path: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore.lnk When I right click on Create a Restore Point and click on configure I have it set to use a maximum of 25.77GB of which 1.10GB is used. It was actually set a lot higher than that earlier but I reduced it.

I did do but was advised to take it down again as it contained some of my activation code.
