This message is to alert you to Freebyte Backup software with Freebyte Task Scheduler. After I installed that software I noticed my programs took much much longer to load and my WebPages were very slow. One morning my system had crashed and an error message said "could not find operating system". I kept rebooting and finally Old Windows XP kicked in and right away I uninstalled FreeByte Backup software and now my computer is it's old self;; FAST. I'm looking for a free registry fixer software to fix the mess that Freebyte made. Any suggestions.
