I woudlnt use it at all my self.

Registry cleaning programs are based on one or two computers. The makers look at those sets of computers and how they think they should work. Once some of the variables change then it can screw your computer. only one i would trust is Ccleaner.

Run malware bytes and make sure that thing hasnt draged down any malware/crapware to your pc.

is it low virtual memory

or

is it low memory as in stoarage space on your hard drive


Ither way it could indercate that you have viruses.

run ccleaner. it will get rid of your temp files and the registry section will clean up any dead registry entries

Malwarebytes is the way to go

what antivirus do you use?

Hd is partitioned into 2 drives c and d, seems to be only 821mb of 8 gig free in d, thought i might be able to repartition it myself, but when i go through windows process to do so, neither drives appear, is it possible for me to move some gig over. Also when Mcaffee runs its updates using Mcod.exe, resource monitor reads at 200 hard failures a second. I have tried to manually disable the scanner but comes up with file system error 65535, in fact every time i try to complete any scans using windows defender or Mcaffe or , i get system failures and errors also sometimes` admin priviliges are required` plus the `computer memory low..`problem. I feel like getting out one of my trusty hammers. The amount of time ive been spemding trying to fix it, i should have got a paper round and paid for an expert to, fix or stick a rip sticker on it!

I would not be to worried about the d: that is mainly a partition for a factory recovery so it takes your computer back to when you bought it. Infact if you repartition this you could screw up that recovery partition alltogether and you wont be able to do a factory recovery on you pc


Hit F8 on start up, you will get a bunch of menus. boot to safe mode with networking.

Download the malwarebytes update and run from safemode.

post back anyresults

Need to be a bit more specific in regards to what errors you are getting when you run bit defender and mcaffe. to be honest mcaffe is garbage. if you can remove it and put avast on.

Sounding more and more like hardware problems but it could be a faulty driver or somthin

this link suggest trying


"""""""""""""""""""
Sounds like you have some corrupt windows files. I think you may also have a black logon screen and problems running programs as an administrator.

To solve this issue, first, boot your computer in Safe Mode. Do this by pressing F8 before the Windows Logo shows up during boot-up. Then, run Command Prompt as an Administrator (found under Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories - right click and select Run as administrator). Then all you have to do is type this:

sfc /scannow
(Space in between sfc and the /)

Then press Enter and the computer will fix itself. This is called the System File Checker Tool and it checks all Windows files for any corrupt or missing ones.

"""""""""""""""''

I have used this in the past and solved a few problems.

You mentioned that you have no system restore points. In the past i have seen the system restore go wrong and take up 60GB of hard drive space

try turning your system restore on and off

to do this

"""""""""""""""


  1. Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.



  2. In the left pane, click System Protection. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.



  3. To turn on System Protection for a hard disk, select the check box next to the disk, and then click OK.
    – or –
    To turn off System Protection for a hard disk, clear the check box next to the disk, and then click OK.

    """"""""""""""""""""""""""'



    You realy need to get a decent antivirus on  your pc and run malware bytes other wise your pushing mud up hill with a square wheel if you have viruses

cool thanks for that,  just did the on/off in security protection, it was flaged but not working for some reason have managed to create a restore point, so maybe the issue will be fixed, ran the scannow earlier today (googled the error) seems to have improved things slightly, ran cc and registry seem cleaner now. Tried to back up whole pc on external hardrive but failed with a critical error, have just dragged and dropped the 2 drivesin to my external, was thinking of re formatting the old HD and repartitioning, but i expect i need software to do it.  Well ta for the help. Not memory issues for ten minutes so far;)

I thinki you would get errors trying to transfer the files if you try to grab the enitre partition or all of its contents because the files are in use by windows.

Dont bother backing up the entire hard drive just the documents and folders you want.

A: because all the extra stuff carnt realy be used correctly if you lost your hard drive unless you create a clone of the drive.

B: its not worth backing up the entire drive even if you could use those files because we know you have problems anyway. and if these problems are caused by viruses you will be transfering viruses.


Did you manage to run the malwarebytes yet?

I think you are getting a bit caught up with all of this partion buisness. if you wana reinstal windows on a  drive with say xp. The disk will just dump it all on one big C: and your done it knows how to do this.

Rember if you do decide to format you will need the following

1: A back up of your personal documents ( dont put em on the new formated pc until you scaned em with malwarebytes and avast)

2: The operating system CD/DVD

3: The certificate of orthenication normally on bottom of laptops and stuck anwhere on a desktop

4: all the drivers for you desktop or laptop, or you wont be able to do anything with the newly installed windows.

5: any software you want to reinstall you will need the install files. (do me a fav, dont reinstall uniblue :)   )

Complete crash then Problems with I386 now,  cant reinstall all of xp" access denied, cant copy files errors etc, have tried pc doctor back up disc, old windows xp disc, vista 30 day trial disc, 

Have had a look in recoverycon/compromt - and had a look at a few things, first command on bootcfg services in disabled and cant be enabled dont know if this is normal. I have read of a virus that can delete this I386 file, but i cant seem to replace it. 

May have something to do with after major crash, vista piped up on install that unless i entered a new product key it would stop working, dont know if this is connected as ive not had it 30 days yet.  May have deleted or disabled restart/boot  authority when i was tinkering with that admin problem, but i had never set a password and now cant look in C: without password,( in recovery/command,) which i dont have as ive never set one.

I have been tinkering with this machine since it started crashing and erroring for two weeks since vista and may have made it worse.  I did download malwarebytes, but it didnt seem to have a scan facility, just file assassain etc, which needed me to select the file to get rid of.

argh gotta go, this pc problem is taking over all my spare time.

Well thats about all which is now becoming a bit of a saga.

File assasin is part of malware bytes but you can get a stand alone version of file assasin

Malwarebytes should look somthing like this and in the first page when you open it. there is the option to scanmalware bytes what it should look like but this is a very old version


should look somthin like above


The I386 folder is generally if you are repairing or installing windows. When do you get these errors to do with this folder


if its when you are installing windows. i would suggest formating and doing a clean install, There are a few registry fixes to try and sort this out but i have never had anyluck with them.


Sounds like your hard drive or other parts of your computer are having problems. If a clean install does not fix may have to take it into a computer shop and let them have a go. may not be worth fixing depending on the age of the computer
