*sigh* My laptop was screwed up somehow so it had to be reformatted, which meant all my programs needed to be reinstalled. *double sigh* I do like my laptop, but not very much right after it's been reformatted because there are so many things to do and so many things missing. I'm really sad and bummed. Nothing is ever the same after reformatting. Two reformats ago, I lost all my Photoshop brushes and textures, which ended with me not ever making another icon or wallpaper or banner again. Yeah, that's why I don't spew out icons anymore. *sigh*

None of my electronics last well. Its life span is half of what it usually is in other people's hands. Maybe I overwork mine. I use my laptop for extreme designing, like running Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign (sometimes all at once). I make my printer print 600 pages of cardstock in the span of only a few months since being bought. I scan a bunch of pictures a day on my scanner. No wonder my electronics always give out after a year or less. I'm an electronics killer.

Edit: So my laptop was reformatted, but then I started getting pop-ups of ramdom ads and viruses, then it wouldn't let my internet load, so I reformatted again. After much time and many problems, I was able to reformat again, only ... now AVG won't install because it said there were errors when it tried to create registry keys. Damn it. My laptop is toast. I am beyond angry.

Have you tried a registry cleaner? I like ccleaner (no, that is not a typo) which is also really good for cleaning out temp folders, caches, and other stuff that weighs your machine down but is perfectly safe to get rid of. (It'll also do browsing history and cookies and things like that.)

If you can get it up and running, maybe it would help? Mrweowr? Hugs? Cookies? Anything? :/

No, I didn't even know about registry cleaners until you mentioned it. I only used an ad-aware program, but that didn't help. My AVG is up and running again without me having to fix anything, so hopefully after two reformats, it's going to behave. Thanks for the suggestion! I will run it every month to help the computer.
