Must resist temptation to smash...
Alright, something is up with my comp. I think i know what it is but wanna get it confirmed before any other action.
I recently reinstalled windows xp pro. a week ago. It took a week to update, and reinstall all my other programs. I thought i was nice and free after that, but hell no.
Sometimes, even after i lock it, the toolbar, search bar, and explorer bar moves around. After i open 3+ pages, it does this. Internet Explorer sometimes doesnt even have the toolbar, but a windows loading logo where the toolbar is, and when I try to close the screen all that happens is a message popping up saying the window is busy do u want to close it? I click yes, and nothing happens. I have to go into the windows task manager, and sometimes only the applications and processes show up, and everything else is blank.
I think this is either spyware, or a bad installation of windows. I'd like to ask microsoft, but that itself is being retarded. Anyone have any helpful hints or tips or something before i either format my computer, or call Dell and hope i still have a warrenty on the computer? (which I dont T_T)
now when you say re-install... did you whipe the HD first? If not, then you could be short on space, or have soemthing else muddled up.
In any case, run Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus scans first. Next download and run process explorer. It's a lot better than windows taskmanager. See what's running all the time.
I suspect the task manager problem is due to processor or memory being 100% used.
idk...I suppose you can roll back and re-install IE7 (if you can roll that back.. can't remember).
See what you can find. Maybe with the results from some of those ideas I'll have a better one, but for now, I'm stumped.
thanks to Silverwmoon!
I got rid of IE7... It took too much processes, and glitched to much. ^^;;
Anyways, The problem is with IE6
And I forgot to add, sometimes i cant right click. (I do know some sites disable it, but those that dont, still dont let me right click)
And do u know how to keep Google toolbar from updating?
umm... tools, manage add ons, show all add ons, kill google toolbar?
thanks to Silverwmoon!
meh rock on
But Yeah, I did a system restore, and it seems to be all well and good... for now.
When you install Windows XP, make sure you use a slipstreamed copy with SP2. It's safer that way.
I used a disc I ordered from microsoft containing sp2 ^_^
