My computer developed a problem a couple of weeks ago, and it seemed as though it corrected itself. Today the problem as returned, with even more chaos. Help and advice very welcome.
I try to download programmes from a cd or internet, and the wizard states that the programme as been installed okay.But the add/remove or files the programmes do not seem to have registered, so I am unable to use them. If a programmes doe's seem to install, and it displays an icon on the monitor screen, I attempt to activate the programme from the icon, with a failed response. Sometimes the programme will activate later on, whilst I am using the computer.
All a bit like cremlins in the system. I have run adaware,spybot,spyware blaster,spy sweeper,trojan hunter,Avg etc, and all are coming back as no problems found.
I am now looking at re-installing my XP Home over the original.Before doing so, I would appreciate further advice.
