Don't forget a disk check and defrag unless you're using an SSD drive.
You may also want to reset your browsers if you copied over their settings.
Please visit each of the following sites and lets reset all of your browsers back to defaults to prevent unexpected issues.If you are not using one of the browsers but it is installed then you may want to consider uninstalling it as older versions of some software can pose an increase in the potential for an infection to get in.Internet ExplorerHow to reset Internet Explorer settingsFirefoxRestore Firefox Default Settings Without Uninstalling ItChromeChrome - Reset browser settingsOperaHow to Perform a (really) clean Reinstall of Opera
okay chkdsk came back clean on both drives, so i should defrag next?
browsers are reset i guess i'll start the defrag
oh i use piriform's defraggler, is that okay?
Yep, that's okay.
So how is everything going now?
Are there still any signs of an infection ?
nothing has come up in the scans but things are still glitchy... like for example when i update some things, like i tried to do with defraggler just now... often they have that "sneaky" opt-in thing before you click install and you usually have to click yay or nay before it'll let you install, however it doesn't provide those options on the set up window (in this case to download google chrome) so i end up not being able to download the update because there's nothing there to select/deselect. however it's defraggler, i'm sure the version i'm using should be fine...
Up to you but for me Defraggler really isn't giving you anything more than what's built-in to Windows.
You can setup a Scheduled Task and have it defrag the drive for you every couple of days or so.
Create a batch file with this in it:
Then set up a task to run that batch file and then it will automatically do it for you as often as you have the schedule run.
Well if there is nothing else then I'm going to be closing this topic soon unless there is some type of malware activity.
well malwarebytes still doesn't work, should i do that clean removal and try again?
Please do the following and let me know.

the exact same thing that prompted me to seek help here, i still get that same run-time error, okay running running that now.
okay it has been removed.
Please download the following scanner from Kaspersky and save it to your computer: TDSSkillerThen watch the following video on how to use the tool and make sure to temporarily disable your security applications before running TDSSkiller.PC Winvids - How to run Kaspersky TDSSKiller If any infection is found please make sure to choose SKIP and post back the log in case of a False Positive detection.Once the tool has completed scanning make sure to re-enable your other security applications.
one question, before i run this scan should i disconnect the failing old drive first or leave it connected?
Shouldn't matter either way.
alrighty, running the scan now.
no threats were found.
Please post the log so that I can review it. Thanks
oh right, sorry:
You need to fully disable your Antivirus and run this step
okay it got halfway through installation and then it shut down and gave me Service Pack 3 Setup Error "Access is denied."
Note: Only attempt this if you are running an English installation of Windows XP as this tool has NOT been tested on Windows Vista or Windows 7 or on non-English installations of Windows:Reset Default Permissions:
okay done, re-try the sp3 install?
Okay responding from my phone now sp3 went through the whole process but when it restarted the computer it seems to be lagging again at the black w/winxp logo "please wait.." screen.
