  1. Thank God for 7 mb of unpartioned space.

    For monthes now my computer was super slow.
    But I put up with it until it messed with my YOUTUBE.
    Priorities you know.

    I didn't know what it was. I must of got hacked or got some sort of virus.
    So for 3 monthes, I.

    I downloaded everything from
    antivirus removers
    backdoor remover
    ad-ware remover
    bho removers
    process analyzers
    Security Scans (One cave me a virus)
    Looked on forums to find out why System Idle process have like a constant 95%
    ( So far as I now know, it means its good. -- less usage saves cpu)
    Used 26 character passwords
    Bugged tech support no less than 20 times.
    Looked for Optimizers and Cleaners
    (one remove one of my passwords and had to call isp for a reset 26 characters is alot to remember)
    Reformated my hard drive no less that 10 times.
    Went to hardware site to download drivers
    And truthfully if that was not enough did no less than 100 other things.

    We'll today I was thinking it was a virus that installed its self on he 7mb of
    unpartitional space, I had heard some where that they could do that, so I GOOGLED.

    and found your forum

    The punchline I had installed (misinstalled) and extra hard drive.
    and had forgot about it. My computer was working so what did I care?


    If you still don't get it re-read above.

    The fix
    removed hard drive
    removed extra cd

    Computer Works Great!!!
