Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
In the last few days I have experienced a number of problems:
Windows will not start up with my printer plugged in to my USB port.
The computer freezes or runs incredibly slow and with problems.
The touchpad (mouse) is either extremely slow and choppy to respond or completely non-responsive but my external USB wireless mouse works perfectly. Keyboard is non-responsive.
I have tried "running windows in the last known good working configuration" using F8 at start up. It worked well once (the first time I tried only) and I performed virus scans, spam scans, etc. Had some spyware but had Spybot delete it. Notified me that it was successful. No viruses were detected, but had a number threats that were locked in the virus vault.
Once windows is loaded I am notified that the file /systemroot/windows/system32/AutoChk.exe is missing
and when the computer is running my Spybot notifies me of a registery change:
Category: Session Manager
Change: Value Deleted
Old Data: autocheck autochk *
I 'deny change' each time but that doesn't fix anything.It stopped working after my brother used the computer so it may have been accepted once.
I truthfully don't know what steps to take next to fix this mess.
A suggestion someone posted to remove the battery pack in my laptop (ACER, Aspire 3000) worked like a charm !!!!!!! The instability/slow-down/seizing up of Windows XP and other software stopped and everything is back to norma! I suspect there is a problem with the circuit board in the battery pack. I'll be picking up a new battery pack today. This advice saved me a bundle/$$$$ and a lot of aggravation. Thank to all ... great suggestions/great website ... keep up the awesome work..!!

Registry error happen all the time it happens when a spyware program mistakes a windows file for spyware then deletes it the only right way to fix the problem is to compeletly restore ur pc to ethier the last known restore point or compeletly restore it to the time it came out of the box
