Hi,

Sounds like a nasty virus, If you can connect to the net, try house call ( google it ) see if you can scan your computer with it, also I have found MalwareBytes found quite a bit along with my AVG, you can download AVG for free and let it run.


Hope this helps.

Stuck on 90%


What are you trying to download? How large is the file?
Usually, between 90% and 99%, your computer is copying the (large?) file from a "temporary" folder to the folder that you designated to receive the download. For a "large" file and a slow computer, this "copying/deleting" can take some time.

Audio configuration problem


Sounds like you took out some drivers or other sound devices. Id recommend doing a sysytem restore from right before you started deleting "stuff". click on the start button, go to accesories, system tools, and down to system restore, click on it. A wizard should ask you to restore from a earlier time, pick the date before you deleted files and that should do it. Next time Id recommend backing up important system files before you start deleting programs and files :)

Hard drive space needed


Simply buying the external hard drive is one thing. Did you simply plug it in, copy stuff over, or _move_ stuff over? You have to move stuff over in one spot to make room elsewhere. Cut-and-paste is your friend. Do not move programs this way -- just data, like videos, music, photos and word processing documents.

There's a wonderful program called ATF-Cleaner from http://www.atribune.org that can also search your computer for unused files. (Windows has a built-in program, too: click Start: Accessories: System Tools: Disk Cleanup). But the ATF-Cleaner is a bit more thorough, does more stuff. You may be simply wasting a surprising amount of hard drive space on stuff like temporary files that became pretty much permanent. You can also free up some space by deleting old System Restore files and the clike -- look through Disk Cleanup.
