"What can I do?"

Swallow the bitter pill, reformat the HDD and reinstall Windows.

When you say my "Computer is full of bugs and trojan horses," the functionality of System Restore has stopped working, which is why the machine gets locked up when you try to use it. There is nothing you can repair except as suggested above.

Swallow the bitter pill, reformat the HDD and reinstall Windows.

Would it not be better to remove the HD, slave it to another PC and save all the IMPORTANT files before reformatting. I really don't think that was very good advice.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
