The file deletion may not be the issue. You may have some sort of virus or spyware interfering with the system boot. You may have driver or setting that is not fully resolved from an update. My initial suggestion for a solution would be to restart in Safe Mode, wait for the computer to fully load all of the basic drivers there, then just restart in normal mode and see if that fixes it. The next suggestion is to restart in Safe Mode with the Administrator account and load an earlier System Restore point. After that, it gets complicated.

Slow performance


First of all, SAVE ALL OF YOUR IMPORTANT DATA! Not programs, just Data. You can reload the programs.

Open Internet Explorer, Tools, Windows Update. Select Custom.
Install all the updates. Repeat until you no longer have updates to install.

Click Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup.
While that is running open your TEMP folder and delete everything in it. Then open the Windows folder and delete all files starting with $NTUninstall. In the Windows\TEMP folder and delete everything.

After that I like to search for all *.bak; *.tmp and ~*.* files and delete them.(They're all temp files)

After all that Open My Computer and Right Click on the C: drive. On the Tools Tab select Check Now. Check Automatically Fix Errors and Scan For and Attemp Recovery of Bad Sectors. Click START and reboot your PC. This will take a long time. When that is finished, go back to Tools and Select Defragment Now. This also will take a long time.

This whole process takes a long time if this is the first time you've done it so, be patient.

How to make computer faster


Hi,

1. Clear the temp files in the temp folder,recent files.

  • Click on Start and then Run.
  • In the text box in the Run window, type %Temp% and click OK. A folder full of files and other folders will appear.
  • All of the folders and files you see in this Temp folder are no longer being used by Windows XP and can safely be deleted.
2. Scan your machine with good anti virus every week with the updated definitions
3. Remove unwanted programs installed in the machine, as it uses unwanted memory.

Two Internet Explorer.exe running


I guess that is web3000 Adware. Here is what you need to do.
  1. Check whether one or more file from this list exists on your machine. Use Windows Search.
  2. instnetmgr.dll
    w3knet.dll
    w3knet_rbt.dll
    w3knet_w3i.dll
    w3kpopup.dll
    w3util2.dll
  3. If exist you have to unregister those dll files. Here's how
  4. Click on Start Menu -> Run. In Run box, type this and hit enter each time.
  5. REGSVR32 -u dllname.dll
  6. Dllname.dll must be replaced with each file name above. Do it for each one.
  7. Deleting Registry Keys is the second step.
  8. In the Run box type Regedit and hit enter.
  9. Navigate to the following Keys and Delete each Key.
  10. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\msbb
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\w3knetwork
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\stashedgmi
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\textwiz_is1
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\web3000 network
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\web3000 network\displayname
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\web3000 network\uninstallstring
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\xtractor plus_is1
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\web3000.com
    HKEY_USERS\.default\software\web3000.com
  11. Remove these Directories:
  12. %ProgramFiles%\textwiz\, %CommonPrograms%\textwiz1.5\, %ProgramFiles%\textwiz\tw.exe , %System%\tw.exe
  13. If you were unable to find the exact directories, just find and delete the third file. If you have deleted the folder, skip the third file. The last file will be in System or in System32 as well.
  14. Clear your Temporary Internet files, Temp files in Documents and Settings/<your Admin Account - the one you use>/Temp
  15. To see the temp, you have to set your Folder Options to see Hidden Files and Folders.
  16. In the Run box, type in msconfig and press enter. Go to Startup Tab.
  17. Look and locate files with the locations which we have deleted and Remove their Ticks. If there are any associated files ticked, Remove them as well. Click on OK and click on Restart Later.
  18. Flush your DNS.
  19. In the Run box, type cmd and hit enter.
  20. Type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.
  21. Re start the machine.
Hope this helps. If the problem persists please feel free to contact again. Please be kind enough to RATE the answer.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

Hi There,

With the viruses gone you need to do a little cleanup. I believe your browser is probably clogged with temporary files and that you registry needs tuning up. Here's the link for a wonderful little application that can do the job for you.

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

Ccleaner is a quick install and does not conflict with any other programs. Install it, run the Cleaner first without changing ANY of the settings, then click on the Registry square on the left side menu and just run it and say yes to every prompt. Then reboot.

After reboot, one last thing;

Hold down the Windows Logo key on your keyboard and press the R key. A Run Command window will appear. Type in %TEMP% and hit the Enter key. Your Temp File folder will appear. Left click once inside the folder window then use the keyboard command ctrl+A. All the files will highlight at once. Hit the delete key and let Windows delete as many files as it can. If it says one is in use and can't be deleted, just let it stay.

You should notice a difference after following these steps.

Good Luck!

Victim of software counterfeiting


After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.
1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
  • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.
