Did you change jumpers (on the back of the drives there are posts for the jumpers and usually a diagram on the top showing the positions) ....master (your hard drive with the operating system ....) goes on the last connection on the ide cable ..the slave drive goes on the middle connector .....on some computers you need to jumper both as "cable select" ....but would do master/slave first.

After downloading the file ...just double click it and let it run ....as to cleaning up the rest:
CCleaner:

Set a restore point ...then
Run the cleaner ...
and then the Issues (you will be prompted to save a backup ...do so>)
