    You're welcome. :)

    Since it does run fine in Safe Mode, you might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to troubleshoot and hopefully find the culprit.

    Thank you very much that seems to have worked, I'm shocked by the result though, seems like the problem app was avast free edition, which iv'e used for years with no problem on several PC's
    Am now installing AVG which I haven't used for many years, hopefuly this will solve it...

    Are your games folders in the program files on your C: drive? If, in safe mode, you can open the program files folder and see if the setup files are in the folder too. If they are, when you do the clean install you will still have a "Windows.old" folder on the C: drive, and the program files folder will be in there (Windows.old) too. IF the setup files are there, just reinstall the games. Otherwise, you will need to network that computer, somehow, and migrate the game files to it, for storage.

    If none of this works for you, the Brink, I'm sure, will guide you where you need to go.

    BTW, the games might be the cause of your troubles. Did you do the "uncheck drill" when you were installing them?

    Nah, I meant the adware check boxes in the install process. Some programs have an "offer" on several of the dialogue pages in the process. If you just click "Next" without reading them, you'll have crap for days on your system. I'm sure you've seen them. They'll already have a check mark in them, so I call it the "uncheck drill"!
