Slow Everything After using Revo Uninstaller

Microsoft Microsoft windows xp home edit...

Specs: Windows XP Home SP3
My problem started when I re-assigned the drive letters for the cd-rom/dvd drive, but left unchanged the hdd drive (to partition), so I restarted after that and windows didn't boot. So I just system recovered it with the cd that came with the comp. And I thought that was the end of that (though the internet was slow) After installing most updates it still worked fine. But then I started removing unnecessary programs using Revo Uninstaller Pro, and that's where it began to slow down (didn't mind it that much), then I installed Autodesk Inventor 2010 and the performance went downhill after that. 'My Computer' was taking around 3mins to show up, sysinfo wasn't working, system restore didn't work, when I right clicked on a file or folder the context menu and the comp. froze up for a while, updates wouldn't download nor notify me, basically the overall performance of the comp. degraded. I suspect that Revo removed some files that weren't supposed to be deleted... So please, please, please respond :(

P.S. I know that it's not a virus/torjan/spyware or any of that.

St1cki3, Take your time and try "Method 2 - Using ShellExView to determine the Context-menu causing the problem" at the link below.

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers.

Thank you Tufenuf, but the context menu shows up automatically, it's when I roll down to 'Send To' when it freezes up (sorry to forgot to mention that) . And I did try that method and unfortunately it didn't work :( Any other suggestions?

It's tough to help when you don't bother to list your specs. For all we know you have a 500MHz Celeron & 128MB RAM?

It sounds like the problem is Autodesk Inventor, not Revo Uninstaller. Does your system meet the minimum requirements?

Well if you want the specs here they are:
1gb of RAM
250 GB HDD
Intel Pentium D 2.8 Ghz

And a moderator edited that. It was originally titled "...after Sys. Recovery" I was also thinking it may be Inventor, but I need it for a class. Quick question though; do alot of system recoveries/system restores damage the hdd?

Wow, you guys just stopped helping...How nice of you =(
I see this in alot of posts on this site, that's why I was hesitant to post here. But back to main concern, any programs out there that can help me identify the problem?

You did many things. At this point, I think the surest, fastest way might just be to back up your files, format and reinstall windows clean, update, and reinstall only the programs you now currently use.

((note: many do not bother to let us know if they find a solution, and everyone does not log on continuously. If a post lies dormant without follow-ups for a few days, others assume the problem must have been solved.))

Oh gotcha. Well I don't have the installation disk, just a recovery disk that came with my computer. But I noticed every time I use it, the internet slows down =/. Anyway how that can be fixed? Also, as mentioned before, I recently did a system recovery 2 weeks before this problem and won't too many system recoveries do some harm to the computer? (It's a Gateway GT5026E)

Right now I tried some trusted system optimizers and system diagnosis programs with no luck. So still on the same square.
