Ok, so I have this computer I'm working on. I replaced the motherboard which is almost a perfect match. It's the same board with just some slight
variances. Put it this way, Device Manager recognizes everything, with the same Windows setup.
Anyway, I removed viruses and trojans from the computer. It got really slow at scanning for viruses when scanning "c:\Documents and settings." It
sped up in later sections of the C drive.
I am noticing I cannot get into My Documents, Control Panel, or My computer. I double click on them and the computer reboots. I can access games, I
can access the device manager, and other programs just fine.
I kind of am leaning toward a bad hard drive in some area of it, because of the slow down in the "Documents and Settings," but I'm not sure?
Unless it just has to do with the destruction the viruses caused.
*New Note.. I can access "My Documents" in the command line.
Thanks for your help,
