Hi helper/reader/please help me:

I recently bought an Alienware Sentia m3450, but I had to reformat my computer because something went wrong. After I rebooted my system, my System Mechanic 6 told me that there were hard drive problems, but after several tries, I have not been able to get it to disappear. Can this possibly be adware/malware? I'm not sure if you guys can tell what is going on from my hijackthis log. My computer has slightly slowed down in fitness.

Hi amateurNeeDhELP,

I see no malware in either log.
Are there, besides the alarms of System Mechanic, any reasons to assume that something is amiss?

Any problems or strange behavior?
Also check the Device manager for question/exclamation marks.

Regards,

I noticed that its become a little more slow on my computer, and system mechanic keeps coming up with this error. There are no differences on the device manager that i can see, except for one that has an exclamation mark. It's called serial and its under non-plug and play

OK. I think that deserves our attention.

Can you please start a thread in this forum:
http://www.geekstogo...pherals-f9.html

State where exactly the exclamation mark is and/or point to this thread:
(you can use this link http://www.geekstogo...howtopic=131150 )
