Hey there, I'm new, joined just to get some help with my computer. I have an ASUS Notebook System: Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Model: ASUS Notebook F5SR Series Rating: 3.5 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6400 @ 2.00GHz Memory (RAM) 4.00GB System type: 32-bit Operating System I have my drive partitioned into two drives C and D I obviously use C as my windows drive and install a lot of my programs onto D drive as I find the system runs a lot smoother if I don't install everything on the Windows drive. I'm not very techy to be honest but I do spend a lot of time on my computer and never download things I don't trust. So I believe this is all my fault to be honest. It started with the fact that my computer was going a little slow and so i decided to remove all my games and uninstalled things I don't use anymore. That was all fine. I then reinstalled itunes onto my computer and that's where everything started to go wrong. It kept saying there were important files missing. I don't remember what it said exactly just that is told me to reinstalll. So that's what I did. And it didn't work, I reinstalled like 5-6 times before my media player started to go funny as well! So I did a system restore to the recommened setting and waited... It STILL did it. And not only that, My Mcafee went all haywire as well, turning the protection off and not being able to update. After a while of trying everything that people suggested I gave up and used my ASUS Restore Disk and The ASUS driver disk and reverted back to factory settings, thinking that it would solve all my problems. It didn't. Not only were those problems still there, things got WORSE. Everytime I tried to download my downloads would time out. I installed an older version of Firefox and it still timed out and I couldn't update properly. Mcafee is now completely uninstalled, along with the mcafee clean out tool. I am really unsure of what to do next. Because computers no long come with a vista disk, I cannot reformat and start all over again. And being a mother and a student, I do not have the money to be going out and buying Vista, I might as well buy a new computer! But I love this one and I am hoping that someone here could help me out. Thank you very much for your time and feel free to ask any questions, I'll do my best to answer them as thoroughly as possible. Kiwi.
