"Save As" doesn't work in any MS Office 2000 program

Q: "Save As" doesn't work in any MS Office 2000 program

I have 2 computers, 1 with WIN 98 SE and another one with WIN XP Home. I'm trying to use the "Save As" function to a network drive in MS Office and I keep getting an error the drive is unaccessible even though I just opened the file. I've only noticed this once since I've upgraded one machine with ME to XP Home and tried to save to the old 98 system. I don't have any problem with any other programs using the "save as" feature, to the network drive.

A: "Save As" doesn't work in any MS Office 2000 program

Are they both having problems ? Is there a drive letter mapped to this network drive?

We've having problems getting the "Out of the Office" function to work. Well, it works just fine internally, but if someone outside our company sends any of our users that has "out of the office" function enabled an email he/she won't recieve the OOTO message.. It works just fine internally (ie I send a mail to another colleague that is away).

Could it be some setting on the Exchange server I've not discovered/I've overlooked?

Hi. I downloaded the Save My Settings Wizard from Microsoft ( but the damn thing does not work! I installed it, ran it, but then it hangs when I am uploading my settings. I've downloaded it a couple of times with the same result! I like the idea of saving my Office settings though. Is there another program I can use?

Okay people, I have a problem and a half.

I am running XP Home with two users - myself (Verity) as an Administrator and Jack as Limited. My problem is with my Microsoft Office 2000 Premium suite that I installed.

Everything on my profile works fine. The problem is with Jack’s.
He is using Outlook Express 6.
When he receives mail with any of the Office programs (ie word, excel, powerpoint) as an attachment and tries to open them, the following error messages occur, in this order:

Windows cannot find “C:\Documents and Settings\Jack\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5FFVMK5L\(attachment name)”
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.
When you click the OK button the next error appears:

User “Verity” has previously initiated an install for product “Microsoft Office 2000 Premium”. That user will need to run that install again before they can use that product. Your current install will now continue.

While this error is on the screen there is another message displayed behind it, which I will detail next. However, if you click OK on the error message above, the Office Premium Gathering Required Information dialogue box appears and then rolls back and uninstalls Office.
However if you click the X to close the error message instead, you are then presented with the hidden message that says:

Greetings all.

THere seems to be a new gremlin hiding in my PC somewhere. When I use any of the office 2000 products and I try to "SAVE IN" a certain folder, it takes about 10-15 seconds for the list of folders and drives to pop up.

This is driving me nuts! Can anyone guide me to a fix for this problem.

A:office 2000- Slow listing when selecting 'SAVE IN'

I am having the same problem as well. Running XP Pro and Office 2003. It seems to have started when I set up my own wireless network at home, but also happens when my wireless is off. Also, at work we have 4 notebooks with similar setups, and one is doing the same thing.

When you 'save as' and want to change the directory in which you save, when you click on the pull down menu it takes 10-15 seconds to respond, and sometimes the 'save as' dialogue window shows not responding.

Any ideas?

A:Word Xp Save Doesn't Work

Hi tim.
If this is only a problem in word, with word\office closed, locate and delete the "" file. When you launch word, it will create a new one.
Make sure you have "Show Hidden Files and Folders" selected via Tools>Folder Options>View tab in explorer as the file is hidden by default. If it doesn't work, it's probably an add-in causing the problem.
Let us know.

I have lost the cd key for my office 2000 software, the program is up and running on my pc but I want to recover the CD key in the event that I have to re-install the software someday when I replace this pc.
Is there a way to discover what the cd key is? I searched the registry and found where the registration number is, but that isn't the cd key.
Thanks in advance.

Oh dear.

There are many programs that will extract the key from the installed applications, but as far as I know, none will work with Office 2000 as the key is encrypted.

However, a phone call to Microsoft with the numbers you do have could be worth it.

Hi everyone,

I'm helping a friend install a new version of Office on their computer and am having some problems. It seems that we are able to install Office 2000, but we can't get Word to work properly. Word will load, but it will ask for the user registration info (incl. CD key, etc) which we provide, it then reboots and when we try to start Word, it doesn't have any Product ID number, or the registration info we just entered. The other modules (Excel, Powerpoint) work fine.

I don't know the exact hardware details, but I'm confident they have adequate computing power. It's a 2 year old Compaq 566mhz Celeron with 6G hard drive and 128MB memory. They're running Win98----will Office 2000 operate on a Win98 machine, or does it have to be Win2000 or newer?

All suggestions are appreciated.

Can somebody out there help me.

I've written and tested an application that opens a .txt file, processes it in XL to re-order the columns and strip duplicates and saves it as .csv. All works fine on my system which has Microsoft Office 10.0 Object Library.

Problem is when I run it on nother machine which has Microsoft Office 9.0 Object Library I get an object undefined error at my definition line

Dim FileDlg as Office.FileDialog

I have checked that Microsoft Office 9.0 Object Library is ticked in the references dialog for the project.

Looking in more detail when I enter "Office." in my module and look in the pull down list FileDialog is not there.

So I need to look at either alternative code to allow the user to select the source data file, or a way to replace the existing FileDialog object on the older machine.

Any ideas anybody?

A:VBA - Office.Filedialog doesn't work

OK after a bit of messing about I've found that the FileDialog object exists in MSO.dll (v10.0) but not in MSO9.dll.

I've been able to switch between MSO.dll and MSO9.dll on my system running Win2000, but on a system running Windows XP with Office 2000 it corrupts Office when I try and install MSO.dll (v10.0). Attempting to start Excel starts an install wizard asking for the installation disk.

I copied MSO.dll to the same folder as MSO9.dll then renamed MSO9.dll as MSO9.bak. I had to do a system restore to get Office to work again after that. With MSO9.dll still in place however the VBA project references re-set to v9.0 each time I closed the References dialog.

So I still need a way to use Office.Dialogs on a system that currently has the Microsoft Office 9.0 Object Library.

Can anybody help?

This article didn't fix it for me:

ctrl-end in Excel 2002 doesn't work

. . . but I figured it out and wanted to share


Somehow, invisible characters get in there, so when you do Ctrl+End, it will throw you into the bottom right somewhere, just not in the bottom right of your data.

Sometimes you can just delete a few rows and columns around where it takes you, go back to cell A1 and save (that resets it).

What puzzled me this last time, which is how I found the above article, is that that didn't work.

Here's what to do.


First, try this:

1) go to the bottom right of your data manually
2) arrow down 25 or so rows to give you some room
3) highlight the entire row directly underneath your data
4) Shift+Arrow Down a few rows . . . keeping Shift held down, press Ctrl+Arrow Down - that highlights everything below, down to row 65,536 (keeping the Shift key held down, you can arrow up)
5) right-click on the highlighted area, and select Clear Contents

Now do this for the seemingly empty columns / cells to the right of your data . . .

2) highlight the entire column

Go to Start under search type in %appdata% there go under \Microsoft\Templates folder and rename "Normal.dotm" to "Normal.old"

A:Access 97: Macro to Outlook 2000 Doesn't Work

Likely, it's because you can't "move upward". Most programs are downward compatible, but not upward. The reason Outlook 98 probably works is because it's really nothing more than an upgrade of Outlook 97. Outlook 2000 came with the Office 2000 suite. If I were you, I'd just open the DB in Access 2000 and convert it, if necessary, and have the macro in there. You should be able to import the new tables quicker than trying to find some other workaround. You can probably just add that to the macro, you know--import tables (linked even) from Access 97 DB, run report, send as rtf to OL2K.

I'm facing problem getting Wingate 4.4.2 work on Windows 2000 Advance Server.
After installing the Wingate Server, with it's default settings, it simply doesn't work. When I try to access a website (from Wingate PC), I could see under <Activity> tab of gatekeeper my Server name and an unknown guest trying to do DNS lookup. It simply doesn't seems to go further than that. Even if a client try to access a website, <Activity> window displays name of client computer and URL it is trying to do DNS lookup, but no more progress. I am not using NAT on Wingate, ENS is installed. Do I need to configure anything else to make WinGate Server work under Windows 2000 Advance Server?

By-the-way my Server congiguration is as follows:

(2) 256 MB SDRAM
(3) 1.6 GHz Intel Pentium 4 on Intel 845 Motherboard
(4) No DNS server, No DHCP server, No NAT configuration.
(5) Dialup connection to Internet.
(6) Windows 2000 Advance Server is hosting a Domain.
(7) All clients are Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2.0
(8) Clients do not use domain, there is only a peer-to-peer network established.
(9) Clients are configured to obtain IP automatically. Earlier I used Windows ICS to share dialup Internet connection. Network is working fine, I can ping server from all clients.

Your kind help will highly be appreciated.

Is Wingate just a proxy server or is it acting as a firewall as well? I would suspect that the server itself needs to have a DNS server listed for name resolution. Can the clients get to a web site with just it's IP address?

Rio Music Manager is the program I usually use to transfer music from my computer to my mp3 player but now it's not working. I reboot my computer maybe once every couple of months because I heard that's good for cleaning it and after I re-install Rio Music Manager after the reboots, it always works except when I rebooted my computer a few weeks ago and tried re-installing the Rio Music Manager again.. everything went fine until the second time my computer restarted and after clicking "Finish installing" or something like that.. it said it failed and told me to check these files:


When I copy & pasted them both under Start -> Run... for the first one, it said "please insert a CD into Drive D" and for the second one, a notepad opened up with a VERY VERY long bunch of words and stuff..

Okay, here's a good one that I've come across and I'm sure there is an expert among all of you that can tell me how to do this. I have a Warpia device (to show my screen on the TV). Now before I install the software, when my computer's screen goes black (I guess asleep), and I touch the touch pad it wakes up and says "What Do You Want To Do". So we are on our merry way. However, if I install the software to the Warpia to watch something on my large TV screen instead of my computer screen (mostly a movie that the wife wants to watch as well), I have to install the software. When the movie is over with, I have to uninstall it so the next time my screen goes black all I have to do is touch the touch pad. If I don't unstall the software, then I have to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the task manager and hit cancel. So my question is, is there away to run this software without actually installing it or what can I do?

A:Program/Drivers Doesn't work well

My comp came with Drive Image Special Edition (DISE) pre-installed. To begin, DISE creates a "D" partition. My "D" partition is large, 5 GB. Most of it is free space, DISE only takes up about 25 MB. 1st question I have is does DISE reserve this 5 GB for it's exclusive use?? If I were to run low on disk space, would I be able to access this 5 GB??

DISE for me is useless. I have Trend Micro software that does a nice job of backing things up. I attempted to uninstall DISE using the supplied uninstall program. There are several screens to wade through, but ultimately, you get to a screen which says "Do You WIsh To Uninstall DISE?" There is a box in which you must type "YES". Then a message pops up saying that the uninstall program must be run within a DOS environment and that all open programs will be terminated. Then there is a "Do you wish to proceed" message with a yes/no button to click. It is at this point that the uninstall program stops...nothing happens. I've tried running this several different times with no luck.

DISE was made by PowerQuest. They were acquired by Symantic. The Symantic site offers no help whatsoever, since it's a program they no longer support.

How can I SAFELY remove the DISE software?? BTW, the uninstall program says that the D partition will not be removed, even when using the factory uninstall program.

I have a program that I can't uninstall. I get an error message "Cannot open INSTALL.LOG". The log is right there, in the same folder as the uninstaller. I tried both add/remove programs in control panel, and running the uninstaller directly. Same error, both ways. I also tried to reinstall first over the existing program. No luck.

So I figure that I'll just delete it manually, but would like to ask if I am forgetting anything.

Delete the folder in Program Files

Run a search for both the program name and the company name, and delete all files

(Optional, I suppose:) Run a registry search for both the program name and the company name, and delete all keys. (I'm guessing that if I don't, the program will continue to be listed in the add/ remove programs list.)

Would that about cover it? Or might someone have a completely different idea? Thank you to all who take the time to reply.

An additional thought: Could the information in the INSTALL.LOG be of help to me?

A:Uninstall A Program Whose Uninstaller Doesn't Work

Read all the text files in the program's directory - it may give you clues as to where and what the program installed.

Next, remember to backup everything (files and registry entries) before you delete it! A manual removal can hose your system if you're not familiar with the structure of the OS.

My Brother is having a heck of a difficult time with his new ACER Aspire 9420 laptop computer. I have the same model that was bought at the same time. I'm not pleased with mine, however I am not having the same kind of problems he is experiencing.

After having a problem running programs, he decided that he had to use the backup OS disk that was recommended to be made so that he could restore his computer to the initial factory condition of the computer. After inserting the DVD he made with the back up program on it, he found that it wouldn't run or be recognized. Why would ACER have suggested that such a disk be made, if it will not run when you need it?

Anyone having the same problem? How do you correct this?

I was running Microsoft Security Essentials when it just froze 1/2 way through a quick scan. The mouse still could move, clicking to stop or close out didn't do anything either. Also Ctrl + Alt + Delete also did nothing. I waited 5 minutes. Nothing. Had to pysically shut down.

Other times I have not been able to click start > shut down. Sometimes I can wait a minute or two and finally things will work again.

Is this indicative of some other process running? Possible a virus? RAM problem? Could a motherboard going bad cause this? Also this customer's BIOS became corrupted for some reason, as the computer would not start before I reseated the battery to get the computer to start again. The battery tested normal at 3.06 V. So I'm still trying to rule out hardware.

I'm on a friend's computer right now, who uses a dropbox system which works in conjunction with a sound recorder. (The person record whatever he or she needs to record, they save it, which means it sends to whomever the dropbox was made for, which in this case is his/her professor. DAMN THEM PROFESSORS :3)

Usually he/she tries to use the program and the sound recorder, which works or doesn't work, but causes all audio on the computer to fail.

When the friend came to me for help, on a freak accident, the microphone/dropbox system worked, and kept all audio intact and sound. So I know the sound is working or able to work.

Another interesting thing about this problem is that ALL audio programs do not work. This doesn't just affect the browsers, this also affects Windows Media Player, which now refuses to play sound files that used to be able to be played because it says it can't play that kind of file.

That does seem to be Microsoft's idea of maximum protection. It isn't necessary to access the net as an administrator. It is safer to have a separate user account as it limits the damage caused by malware. Using the smart screen filter and in private browsing helps.

When I click on the Office Assistant button or try to use a wizard I get this error message:

There was a problem starting the Office Assistant. Would you like to try reinstalling it?

This happens across all Office apps, and just happened out of the blue, one day, I have no idea why!

I noticed the Office Assistant wasn't coming up, and click on it, then got these problems.

When I click yes to the error, it does try to reinstall, but in the end gives me another message:

The Office Assistant could not be started. Please repair the Assistant by running Office 2000 setup and selecting "Repair Office 2000".

I then try this to no avail. Also I have looked on Microsoft support and have overwritten my oleaut32.dll file, then reinstalled Office as suggested, no improvement. Also tried to set the Office Assistant to run from my computer instead of CD-ROM as shown in another Microsoft support artice, but it was already set to run from my computer, so Office Assistant still doesn't work!!!

This isn't an upgrade. I bought the full version Office Professional 2003 and would like to install it over what I have now. I had Office 97 and an upgrade CD to Office 2000. Will I lose anything to install Office 2003 over Office 2000? I have WinXP home if that makes a difference.

Can anybody out there help- I have a number of documents saved in binders on Office 97. I've now switched to Office 2000 [which appears not to 'do' binders] and can't figure out how to read them - they come out in gobbledegook. Advice Please.

A:(Solved) Read Office 97 docs in Office 2000

Office 2000 does have binder. Look for it under Microsoft Office Tools. Perhaps you did not install it?

I have vista on my Asus laptop - 6 months old - which also came with MS Office 2007 - as work has MS office 2000 verison, went out, bought a legit copy of office2000 and... CRASH!
could not open word/excel/outlook etc - did find out through a forum that cannot have another version of outlook with 2007 at the same time - so uninstalled office 2000 and only installed word and excel 2000.

same error - when opening word/excel it opens up, but as soon as it comes up with the pop up to accept terms and conditions, it also comes up with another pop up saying windows has found a problem, and will advise when there is a solution - the only button which works is 'ok' and once pressed, it closes.

read elsewhere, that it could be due to having ms office 2007 installed first - so uninstalled both 2000 and 2007 versions of all ms office and re-installed excel and word 2000 - and still with the same error - PLEASE HELP...
are there any 'footprints' left in the system from 2007? are there other parts which need to be removed for a complete uninstall?

Also, what is the difference between Academic and Standard? Is there any difference in the way they operate, load, etc?

I have been a user of Office 2000 since it's inception and always downloaded and applied all service packs, etc. to keep it up-to-date.
Recently a friend had me try Office 2003 to see if I liked it better. I did some data backups, uninstalled 2000 and installed 2003. After several weeks of trial and error I have decided to go back to the simplicity of Office 2000. I mainly use Word, Excel, Outlook, and Power Point.
I want to completely uninstall 2003 and remove all traces of it then install 2000.
Is this possible to go back to a previous version without any problems?
I know where all of my Word and Excel files are stored and will back them up to be reintroduced to 2000. What about my Outlook files, namely the personal folders containing my address book and existing emails, sent items and deleted items? Is a newer .pst file created using Outlook 2003 recognizable by the older Outlook 2000?Any suggestions?

Hi all,
I recently bought a nice new HP computer. Since I have MS Office 2000 and I hate to upgrade because my other computer has this on it (and I know how to use it all!), I installed MS Office 2000 on the new computer.

Problem I am having is that an error message comes up that says:

Unknown error Ox9EE4011D An error occured while attempting to open the windows address book. Unable to find the WAB DLL.

I am pretty sure this is because MS Outlook 2000 is not supported by Win 7.

I have tried a few things with no luck.

I navigated to [C:\Program Files\Common Files\System]
I found the files wab32.dll and wab32res.dll, copied these
and pasted them to [C:\Windows\System32]

Right now when I look in this file [C:\Windows\System32], I see:


When I open up Outlook, it wants me to set it up and enable macros each time I open it.
When I do this I get the error message above, then it will download all messages as it would normally.
Problem is, just can send out any email.

I can't unload and reload Outlook without having to unload the entire MS Office 2000 because there is no seperate program in the remove program que.

Somewhere it said to go to the run window and register the dll's by using the following command at the run prompt.
[regsvr32 wab32.dll]
Tried this, but it would not let me do it (or I didn't do it right.

I have seen many things related to this, but not... Read more

Last spring, I had to fresh install XP Pro on my laptop and thought that it would be a good idea to buy Office 2003 Professional to replace my old Office 2000. I love it and find that I am very frustrated with the 2000 Pro on my office computer. So, I just bought another 2003 Pro and I have no idea how to proceed to upgrade. Do I uninstall all of the current Office programs? Do I simply stick the disk in the CD drive and let Windows figure it out? Do I build a fire in the parking lot and do a dance? I was successful with a new installation when I did the fresh install. But I do not want to lose all of my Outlook e-mails attachments, and contacts. I have benefited a great deal from the help here in the past. I hope that someone can guide me in the simplest possible way. I am a relative novice/greenhorn.

A:Up grade MS Office 2000 Pro to MS Office 2003 Pro?

Each MS Office a distinct entity, there really is no such thing as an "upgrade" from one version to another.

You could conceivably install each and they would both work, because they are independent of each other.

I suggest uninstalling the version you don't like...install the version that you do like . That's what I do.

You will need the CD for each to uninstall or install.

I have a few year's worth of e-mails with order confirmations, travel data, business communications, and archives going back an equally long period of time. If I buy Office 2007 Professional, how do I preserve all I currently have. Is there a export and restore function which exactly replaces the e-mails (current & archived), contacts, etc. Do I need to purchase the full version, or is it just as good to get the "upgrade" version? If I am accustomed to 2000, is it a good idea to even consider upgrading?

Thanks in advance for guidance.

A:Upgrading from Office 2000 to Office 2007

If you are going to upgrade or perform a full install of a new version of Outlook its advisable to get those emails, contacts etc backed up. This link shows you how to perform a backup of Outlook 2000 and what files to look out for. If you are happy with your current version of Outlook is there a real need to upgrade? One consideration I would make would be if Microsoft still provide updates for your version of Outlook, these updates are really important to fix security flaws.Hope that helps.

Okay so maybe you can install Office 2000 and Office 97 using different directories. I do beleive this. BUT what I did was install Office 2000 .. removing Office 97 before I realized that I would need at least ACCESS 97 for a existing shared database. So I tried to install ACCESS 97 (using a different Drives 97 on C and 2000 on D) but after install and trying to run .. I get a message saying it could not start because it did not have the license for it on the machine.
I have gone so far as to completely uninstall both versions and reinstall Office 97 only but get same message. I also used Fix-It Utilities 99 to clean up the registry. But I am still coming up with this problem .. no licenses found for Access 97.

Any help here guys??

A bit of background for my issue/question:

In order to sync my Windows Mobile phone to my computer I have to have Microsoft Outlook installed. However, my version is Office 2000. I cannot use Virtual XP on this particular computer (it's just a netbook) to use Office 2000 that way, but I did try that on my other computer, which runs Virtual XP beautifully. Unfortunately, it would not allow the syncing of the phone via the Virtual Machine. The more research I do on this issue, it seems Office 2000 is not really compatible with Win7, thus why I tried the Virtual XP thing in the first place.

So, my actual question is:

Does anyone have experience with Office 2003 and Win7? Are there issues running that? I'm sure Office 2007 is recommended, but I'm just looking for any insight anyone might have to offer from your own personal experience with running Office 2003 and Windows 7.

Just some additional information I thought I would put out there and if any one has any insight/solutions into these, that is welcome as well!

Windows 7 does install and run Office 2000, there are just some annoying quirks:

1. I had to copy over wab32.dll and wab32res.dll from C:\Program Files\Common Files\System into C:\Windows\System32 to get the address book to work in order to send messages or really do anything useful in Outlook.

2. I cannot select Microsoft Outlook as the default mail program. It doesn't even come up in the default programs list. That is why I cannot sync my phone up, because it... Read more

A friend of my wife's has 'consulted' me about something I know nothing about (now that's unusual since I keep telling people I know everything!).

Her computer is nearly as old as mine and is a Dell with 98SE, PentiumIII, 128MB RAM and 12GB HDD (nearly 10GB free space). It is mostly used for word processing and emailing but not for serious surfing.

It currently has Office 97 which includes Word (or is it the other way round?) Her employer has offered to upgrade her in stages to Office 2000 and then 2003, so that she can do more work from home.

What she wants to know is whether the newer programs can be installed without first uninstalling 97 and risking the loss of the documents she has created with 97 (and with the MS Graphics program),which are currently stored in My Documents. I thought it would be OK but don't actually know, hence this post.

She has plenty of HD space but I wonder if the other system requirements of the newer programs would make the upgrade difficult or even impossible.

I have a client that has Office 365. They have two people with this issue. It's not really a huge problem but more as an annoyance. Whenever they go to open a document through an Office product (Word/Excel: File>Open>Computer>Browse) the documents appear but they're missing the icons next to their name. There's barely any information on it when Googling this and they all seem to lead to dead ends for us. The two I have found are and neither have resolved our issue. I have ran a repair on Office, re-installed office, recreated Windows icons, and opened the programs in Safe Mode to no avail. No Add-Ins are causing the issue. You can see the icons to the left of the files in Internet Explorer when going to Documents. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you.

I have an ASUS notebook running windows 7 64-bit. I am using the QuietOffice power profile, however the screensaver won't kick in no matter what I do, and the display does not turn off even though I set it to be after 5-minutes of inactivity. I don't know if there is something running in the background... I have turned off my usb wireless mouse, and nothing....

Any ideas?


A:HELP: power option doesn't work - screen saver doesn't start!

This is another case of factory bloatware interfering - in this case a useless factory utility overriding Win7's superior built-in version.

Googling the Quiet Office feature of Asus there are multiple reported problems. Best to default to the Win7 built-in Power Options in Control Panel. Set up a Balanced Plan unless you're a gamer then use High Performance.

I have no idea what my sister and her friends were doing on the comp for a couple of days that i decided not to use it, but now:

- a few programs take forever to load or don't load at all, but they do show up under the processes tab in the task manager
- after pressing Ctrl Alt Del, the task manager icon appears in the system tray, but the thing only shows up a minute later
- my system recovery is "not able to protect my computer," and restarting does nothing
- actually, when restarting or shutting down Windows, it stops at where it only shows my desktop background and cursor [which is still able to move] and nothing else after that, so i have to hold the power button and force it to shut off
- when I right click the desktop and click on "Properties..." [or something similar to this action] it doesn't show up at all, and whenever I try to open any application after that, they don't even load at all either
- and probably other stuff that I haven't took note of yet...

Things i've tried to get rid of these problems:
- Virus scan with avast!, a couple viruses found and fixed, but nothing changed.
- disk clean up, nothing changed
- registry clean, nothing changed
- CURRENTLY defragging my C drive, hope something changes..

Anyone got any suggestions on what to do next?
Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated!
