Hey! About 3 days ago, I installed Ad-Aware SE Professional, I ran Ad-Watch and found out that I did a bad move as the program started, being the computer newb that I am, I had no idea what was happening. So I turned it to "Automatic." After that, I found out that my entire desktop and Start menu programs all turned into ".lnk" files. So I got on the internet and searched Google, and found some answers (importing some files into registry). After all that, I restarted my computer, but right before it hits the login page, I'll get a weird windows pop-up with some foreign letters (I think it's Korean?). I click "Ok" at the bottom and everything goes fine, but all my system tray icons don't show anymore. This happens every time I boot my computer. Also, I'm experiencing some major lag now. I don't know if it's because of the new hard drive that I installed, but almost everything lags like hell now. My browser will lag, videos will be choppy, etcetera. But my new hard drive is 2x worse. Lastly, there'll some times be days that my internet just totally doesn't work. On my router & modem, the buttons will still be flashing, but I can't use the internet at all. This has been happening even before the installation of the hard drive and before the "weird pop-up." So, yeah. Sorry for the long read. I've been using computers for a while, but I'm basically under still a beginner, so step by step instructions would be awesome. Here's some basic information: OS: Windows XP Model: Dell Dimension 4550 Router: D-Link (DI-624) Firewall: Norton 2006 Antivirus: Norton 2006 P.S. I'd love to show you a picture of the error I get right before that login screen, but "Print Screen/SysRq" won't let me take a picture of it. I'll press the button, go into Paint when I get logged in, but there's nothing to paste. Thanks in advanced!
