    Hello everyone...hope everyone having a great weekend!

    I have some probs regarding setting up my sisters PC. I have been trying for last 2 days to work with Spybot,Regcleaner & adware...but it doesnt run..& even if it does run while within a a min its getting stuck..thats happening in Spybot. While no matter what i double clicked to open reg cleaner & adware it simply doesnt open. Even done re installing all the 3 mentioned above but in vain :( I even tried going to the directory & open but simply doesnt work. Any help would be appriciated as she is abt to move away with the pc in abt 2 days.

    Regards,
    AXIS

    Can you open them in the safe mode ?



    Some reasons why this would happen is the exe file is searching for dependent resources like .dll files and it is not finding them. These files should have been installed with the setup.exe but sometimes these files gets corrupted, and an uninstall/reinstall might do the trick.


    Take a look at the icon that launches the application Is it a shortcut to an executable in a mapped drive?

    You may also want to consider doing a disk check.
    Click start-> run-> type 'cmd' without the quotes.
    Type dskchk /f
    The /f will fix errors found with bad clusters. (Dont think it fixes anything but marks bad spots on the disk.)
    It will probably tell you that it cannot run disk check because the file system is in use and will ask you if you want to shecdule a check when the system is restarted. Type y and press enter and restart your system.


    Also these will help you..
