Everything on that site is to be taken with a grain of salt.

then select "Buy a copy of SpinRite", because that is mainly what the

This is just a shot in the dark but, I had a problem that slowed my
computer, made it freeze and all kinds of other bothersome things.  It
is supposed to be a search type thing but, it takes up so much room
that it just screws up your computer.  It also installs it's self.
Once it is on your system it is very hard to get rid of.  Look in add/
remove programs and look for anything with the word Zumie in it.
Zumie Search, Zumie or Zumie.exe.  You have to uniinstall it all and
then disable it.  I don't know exactly how to disable it.  My friend
that works on the Postal Computers had to do it for me.  If you don't
disable it the pain in the arse just keeps coming back.  If that is
not what your problem is then you now know to watch out for it.  I
wondered whether or not to get rid of it but, did not know what it was
until my computer crashed from all kinds of problems.  It took several
hours to bring it up again.  You have to make sure that you get rid of
all of it or it just keeps coming back.  Sometimes you will get a fast
pop up saying this is a very important update and before you can react
it is installed and the window is gone.  So, keep your eyes open for
it.  It sounds like the same problems that I was having.  I actually
had to get out of a site, then restart my computer in order to go to
another site even when I clicked on a link on a site page or an e-mail
page.  It would drop off line and say can't find server/can't display
page.  It drove me crazy having to restart everytime I wanted to do
something else and then CRASH!  HARD DRIVE ERROR.  A great pain.  So,
check it out.  Search Zumie or Zumie.exe and you'll find info.  If you
find it on your system and can't get rid of it contact me at
hillguy@verizon.net  and I'll get my friend to give me the steps and I
will be happy to give them to you.  It is a BEAR:.  I was going
crazy.  It started out doing little things and then it just kept
getting crazier until my system crashed and when I tried to turn off
my systerm and let it sit for a little while and then try to reboot it
would try but, end up telling me Hard Disk Error and would go no
further.  As a matter of fact last night I was sitting at my desk and
my system crashed again.  So, I tried to reboot and just let it sit
for a couple of hours and then shut it down for the night.  This
morning I turned it on and it booted right up.  So, I don't know if my
friend did something that will search it out and get rid of it when it
reloads again.  Now, I'm  running fine but, going to see if it is
back..   Sam
