|Hi, this may seem silly to some of you, but it is worrying me. (I have had enough troubles that the least little thing makes me worry.)|
The main problem: when I defragmented earlier today, I noticed that the number of unmovable files decreased dramatically. Usually there are two green strips near the beginning of the bar. Today those were still there, but there were also four thick strips near the end of the bar.
I know they are primarily page files, but it still worries me.
Also happening today, to give the full picture. I checked my plugins and found that adobe acrobat was outdated. I tried to update it, and it said I needed another plugin to display the page - one unknown to firefox. The file that was downloaded is named gp.ixi.
In the end, I reinstall the adobe plugin using the instructions on the adobe site. That lead to the adobe DRM trying to download and install reader X, which did not install. It said that I needed to stop Program Manager to install it. The only open program at that moment was Adobe DRM, so I cancelled out.
I tried to defragment after that, which is when I noticed the strange extra green files.
I tried to download and use the Microsoft Fixit tool. It made me have to install the .Net framework. After I installed that I tried to run the tool and it gave me the message "Troubleshooter doesn't apply to this computer."
So yeah, I think something is wrong, but I am not sure what. I also did notice that the computer started up a little differently this morning, but there are no new programs installed. I have run a virus scan, but have no yet run Malwarebytes Anti Malware.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
