@1nonly: I have to concur with Greg on the Clean Reinstall. I fat figured something in the past few days and only noticed the repercusions today. Price of researchng solutions on your only working machine, I guess. So I spent a few hours trying to fix it, but eventually said "screw it" - I could be half way tnrough a fresh install.

The tutorial is very well written - if you follow it step by step, you'll have a much better running system.

I was going to suggest that you go through your system and clean out the old applications, run some utilities to clean up any left over bits, but that's a lot of work. More work than backing up your data and doing a clean install.

It's your call, and it depends on your threshold for pain. Take the piecemeal approach and possibly BSOD in a week or a month from now, or go all in and get a stable system.

There's a lot of stuff on your machine that has the potential to bite you sometime in the future (questionable optimizers, many active torrents, not to mention outdated sotware/drivers).

You have some of the best folks giving you suggestions. So I'll bow out.

I would also consider getting a perfect install following these same steps for
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
Set up yourself as passworded Administrator then other family members as Standard Users so that they cannot download/install from questionable sites or change settings without your permission.
