Thanks for that advise, done the malware check on another computer I am using and it found 1 infected file!!! I think it was a photo in my USB stick, but the Cc programme (filehippo) that tidies up the registry isnt really free, I loaded it and ran it and it came up with an INCREDIBLE 1116 "errors" it says the PC is "sick" and needs to be cleaned up so it will run properly BUT you only get 25 FREE error corrections and then you are prompted to buy the registration code, obviously i am not going to do this, I think there MUST be a way to clean up the registry and free up more space?? I do a defrag every few months and the "disk clean up" on the C and D drives regularly. Do you think this Cc programme is a bit of a con?? thanks PCDIMWIT

Just back to UK and downloaded the AntiMalwareBytes programme to the acer compuiter and its already found 6 virus's on the short scan, so got it running the long scan (while using a different computer for writing this) so will see what it brings up and then I will download the CCclean programme and tidy up the registry with that, the 6 virus's were all do to with the registry files. So Thanks again!!! PCDIMWIT
