I recommend that you use System Restore to a date prior to this problem starting.

1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.

2. Under Pick a Task, click Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.

3. You will see a calender, pick the date that you installed youtube vid downloader

4. Click Next

See here for more information on System Restore

That is probably due to this
System drive C: has 707 MB (5%) free of 15 GB

We are very limited what we can do with a machine in this condition.
The normal course of action would be to remove unneeded programs, but that would probably wipe the restore points that we need.

Do you have the install disc for your Linksys wireless-b ?
If so, try uninstalling - reinstalling the software.

Since you only have 707 MB of free space, a wipe of the drive may not be a bad idea anyway.

There are other options, but they may take longer and at this point we don't know what the problem actually is.
The choice is yours.

I guess the best thing to do might be to wipe it clean. I will take about a week to sort through all of my files and pick out the ones i really need to keep store them in my D drive then wipe the C drive. I hope this will work. I will reply when I'm done and tell you if it worked or not. I also have a few more questions I would like to ask once the internet works. Bye till next next week.

Not really the computer seems to be running fine.

I do have a few questions though.

My sound and graphics cards are bad apparently... Is there anything I can download to update them?

I have heard of an SP3 i have SP2 should I update if so how?

Other then that I think thats it...

It depends what you mean by "My sound and graphics cards are bad apparently".
You can check if there are driver updates for them, but you are better off on a tech forum for that rather than here.

You should update to SP3 as soon as possible, but mack sure you back up all your data and disable any security programs before starting.

It is always safer to back up your data if you are altering system files
Also, SP3 has been known to crash some machines.
