Task manager Problems after installing Google local search
Posted on 2004-10-16
Task manager, and everything else on one of our computers has been working fine for over a year. I am running win 2000 Sp4.
I installed the Google hard drive search utility and now Task manager will either not load (I get a box about generating an error log) or it will open and only shows three processes (it used to show over 40 and Sisoft Sandra confirms that there are many more processes). I also had problems with Outlook not being able to find Word as its default editor - this has never happened before. I have managed to cure this particular new 'feature'.
I have run a full system virus scan with NAV 2004 with the latest virus definitions, run Registry Mechanic, Ad-aware, Spy Sweeper, and hi-jack this - nothing.
I have tried to reinstall SP4 (network install) and get an error message - an error log is being generated etc..
I would like to think that this is a trivial problem which I can ignore - but on the other hand Win2000 has bitten me before.
Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.
