I cannot download a family CD on my computer.
Unlike a camera memory card, a regular data CD may not auto open/load into your computer. You need to insert the CD into the CD drive while the computer is running,. It should automatically open Windows Explorer and show the contents of your computer. The CD drive will be an item listed. double click on the drive (probably D:) to show it's contents. Then copy any files from the cd to your documents or photos folder.

Computer takes an age to start and runs very slow
It may well be some form of virus or spyware.
It may also be that you have too many applications running at once eg. lots of toolbars and instant message typ programs.
It can also happen on graphic intensive applications.
You should rule out nasty stuff first.
for a free one its pretty darned good !
From a CLEAN computer download and put on a flash drive.
Copy to your DESKTOP on the suspec computer.
Run it but dont change any options just use what it offers.
When its done let it clean anything it finds.
Its where I always start with an infected machine.
As for antivirus AVOID Norton or Mcafee but try the AVG FREE version MBAM should clean up without buying
Only continued use would require purchase As for too many applications that would be up to you to decide what you REALLY need and dont. Most toolbars are a waste of both time and space and can hog computers down. Maybe a good clean up is in order ?
It may just be a "leaking application"
These are badly coded programs that dont release memory when they should and just keep taking more to do the same job.
May I suggest you download "hijackthis"
It is a program that can make a report on what you have running in such a way that you can post that information to certain sites and experts there will look at it.
They will then give you reccomendations as to how you can remove programs or fix some issues that may be upsetting your computer.
Dont post the log here but follow the nstructions and help the program offers to send it to one of the sites it will offer you.
If you understand startup lists you may even be able to spot som things yourself that you dont want to run and disable them from hijack this.

Windows Vista registry corrupt after
Try running chkdsk /r from command prompt in the Vista Recovery console. If you cannot access it for whatever reason, boot from a WinXP disk and press "r" at the first screen. Once you have the command line, type the chkdsk /r command. If that does not work, please post back.

Registry file corrupted after chkdsk /f
all your old files should be in windows.old so you should be able to rescue any pics and music, documents etc.
i might add there is a standalone rescue cd you can make... do a google for vista rescue disk to find it.
In your case i would suggest at this point to save all the files in the .old folder that you want to keep.... and reinstall vista ... use the complete format option but only after you back up the files.
