    Have you Virus checked you system, there might be a high chance that you downloaded a virus when you downloaded and installed system mechanic 8.5 and it has messed up that program?

My computer list the cd-rom but have exclamation points by both units. the error code 41

A yellow circle with a black explamation point indicated that the device is not funcioning correctly. This is usually resolved by upgrading the firmware/drivers for the device. I went on and found the latest for your CD-RW drive and have included the link below.
Please click Firmware in blue on the page and then download the latest. It is reccomended you create a system restore point prior to installing in the unlikely case that the install causes system instability.
If that happens you can press F8 as windows boots and select boot into Safe Mode. Then go to control panel, system, device manager, select the device, properties, driver, and hit roll back driver.
Hope this helps Please vote if so :) Have a great day

Our Steamist steam shower is probably a few years

That is a main problem with the analog systems. Just not reliable as the new digital systems. To my best knowledge there is only one manufacturer making the 100% digital steam generators.

System Mechanic causes Registry problems


I use nCleaner and have had absolutely no problems for over a year now. I find System Mechanic has too large a 'footprint' and, like you said, is pretty incomprehensible to use out of the box.
The only thing that took me unaware with nCleaner was that it cleaned out My Received Files by default, so all the photos I had been mailed through Messenger were deleted, so make sure you copy them into another folder first :)
I have never had any software problems after using it though, and I install and uninstall programs pretty regularly!
So it comes highly recommended. It's a bit like CCleaner (if you have heard of that) but with more functions like Registry Clean.
I would reinstall XP first though as SM seems to have messed up, and you want a clean start. Also remember to reinstall all the XP drivers for your motherboard too.

Hope this helps
