Installing Speccy wasn't a problem. Running it was. It slowed down so much I thought I was running a Pentium 166. Setting Speccy to show the CPU temp in the tray caused a BSOD. Upon rebooting, Kaspersky Internet Security wasn't running (couldn't start, databases corrupted).
Trying to download the Kaspersky uninstall tool failed. Message received was 'can not save file, file/directory corrupt'. That was trying to save to C. Saving to an external drive worked. Then found out that Windows was corrupt.
Tried to do a system restore (made one before installing Speccy). That failed. Windows reported errors on the drive and couldn't continue. A "refresh" of Windows failed, Windows was corrupted. Had to do a full "reset" of Windows.
This has happened twice. I had no choice but to do a full reset of Windows both times.
This is maddening, I'd like to use Speccy but will not put it back in until the solution is known.
