Several weeks ago my pc (acer aspire 5100. amd turion 64x2. ati radeon xpress 1100. 100gb HDD. 1gb ddr2.) began to run very slowly, as if i was running several programs at once. I instantly thought trojan or conflict so i got several progams.. ran them and while i found several issues, nothing really got rid of them, simply detected them.
A close friend of mine told me about you guys so i registered but due to a recent move i hadnt ever posted. Recently an account of mine on a game i play was hacked so I downloaded pc tools firewall (i have avast for antivirus and malware bytes for malware). during installation i ran into some problems and ultimately it needed to reboot my system to finish installation. Also i should mention that my wife installed spybot search and destroy recently.
When i rebooted (wich took 3x as long as normal) not everything loaded and i was unable to open any programs, i couldnt even pull up task manager. i gave it time but nothign after an hour. I even had to hard boot it since i couldnt even shut down properly. Scan disk didnt run. I tried to go in through my wifes side in case it was something with my settings and i got a rundll error. still couldnt open anything. I tried to run setup at start up and it skipped right over it and ended up booting so i couldnt get in safe mode.
Im on my side now, ive tried downloading some fixes ive seen recommended on geeks to go but i cant open any of them. Nothing runs! I dont knwo what to do. By some grace of god i got IE open by opening it before my computer finished booting.
Ive heard of fixes for rundll before, but most of them involve reg. fix and/or programs that i wont be able to open.
I cant even get hijack this to work.
Am i screwed? Please help me. And sorry about for the essay. Thank you for you time in advance.
