I've been working with Rorschach112 on other issue on other computer. I had this bright idea to run ATF cleaner on my main computer. Afterwards I received the topic message when I tried to click on C drive. It is possible I might have a virus but I also have Norton A/V running continuously on this computer. I also have to set the stage on other uuboos I have done.

Back in August I tried upgrading memory on this computer. I screwed up and did not have correct memory therefore it was not seated completely. Fried the motherboard(MB). I replaced the MB and I think Checkdisk screwed up the recovery drive IF I had one. It did a bunch of reallocations.

My data survived. Potentially until today. I have not done anything since running ATF. I didn't do much after MB failure other than save a few files.

ATF Cleaner would not have caused any problems. You definitely have malware

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
