Please start your own topic because this topic has not had a reply since November of last year. I highly doubt you will be given any assistance here.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.

If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Thank you so much for this fix. Had I found it sooner, I would have saved $90.00 AND 3 hours of my time. But I'll settle for saving the $90.00. Thanks again.

Thank you!! Worked perfect for me after hours of pulling my hair out. Just to add for newer computer users. To get out of the Command "black box", just type in EXIT.
