Also, MSE finished, no problems.


I have to add the things are getting better so thank you again

Excellent.

Now that you have a working system, even if not all cleaned up yet, then:
1. delete all restore points.
2. reduce size for restore points to 3 GB
3. create a new restore point.

Typically Win 7 will set aside much more space for restore points than an intelligent user will need.

OK, now here's how you accomplish those steps:
WIN | type Create Restore Point | ENTER |

The System Properties dialog will open up to the System Protection tab |
Click on the CONFIGURE button | slide the slider to 3 GB |
Click on the DELETE button | APPLY button | OK button |

You now have removed all restore points. You need to create one.

click on the CREATE button | give your restore point a description |
CREATE button | CLOSE button | OK button

-----------------------------
The journey will continue after hearing your glowing report of success.

Another view:

How much of your 250gb HD is being used? If you have the space to spare I would not trim my Restore Point space but instead apportion even more so that you get more points which hang around longer. This can be critical if you become infected but don't realize it for some weeks or months. I set my new installs to 20%. It is adjusted according to available space.

I sometimes salvage an installation by restoring 3-6 months back.

Greg,
Presently he's a little short on space.

After his system is cleaned up, then he can expand the space if he so desires.

Use the CCleaner Tools tab to uninstall unwanted Programs, toolbars (use only the search box built into the browser) to free up more space.

I'm honored.

Now let's follow up on Greg's suggestion re using CCleaner to do some program cleaning, BUT we are not going to clean out any programs at this moment.

First, we need to stop some programs from running at startup time and gumming up the works.

When you stop them from running at startup time, you do not stop the program or delete or disable the program. You are simply stopping the program from running at startup time. Later if the program is needed then the program will perform the "startup actions"

I'd like for you to use the following and I'll immediately look at the file you post so that you know which programs aren't needed at startup time.

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.

Here it is. I think it has to be in a normal state because I clean it every now and then with msconfig or earlier TuneUp (TU divided startup processes into optional, unnecessary and necessary, I usually stopped everything which wasn't necessary, except if I knew that I'd want the particular software to run at startup).


Sorry, Igen=Yes, Nem=No. I'm surprised to see Canon MyPrinter on the list since I've uninstalled that software recently as my Canon printer refuses to work with Win7 computers..*sigh*.

I uninstalled the factory stuff I wouldn't need when I first used the computer Though there still some things all Asus-software which I don't need if I'd need or not. But all the games and non-Asus stuff are already gone.
