Next, i started getting slowdown issues all throughout my computer. One day, after I shutdown my computer, I booted it back up and it said Windows cannot find the file C:/windows/System32/config/system
I tried to use the recovery disk and it didn't work because a BSOD showed up whenever i selected the drive with windows on it. I think it said something like PAGE_FILE_UNPAGED_AREA. I don't think that was it exactly, but it was something like that. Basically, i did a lot of things other people said would work and they didn't work. The only thing that managed to get my computer up and running again was to use a 3rd party boot disk, BartPE and to restore a few old registry files that had been corrupted. So, now we get to my current problem...
Here is my HijackThis log [attachment=30606:Hijackthis.txt]
My current problem is this: I cannot run system scan disks or defrag. It simply won't let me. It says it will schedule a scandisk and it never does, it says that windows can't start defrag. I have tried so many different fixes for the defrag problem and nothing works. The only way i was able to scandisk was to use the recovery program on the windows CD and run chkdsk.
I am certain this problem is not virus related, i have run MULTIPLE scans with many different software. I have been recently getting an issue with internet explorer and google where it directs me to different webpages and site adresses than what google says they are, if i continue to go back and click the link again, it will direct me to the right page. So could it be spyware related? None of the scans I have run have picked it up.
I am at the end of my rope here, my computer is dying slowly and to make matters worse, when i hooked up this HDD to my moms computer and ran a defrag on my own HDD, her HDD clunked out at 53% of the defrag and won't even be recognized in windows. It shows up as RAW in the partition type. I've been battling this for over 2 weeks now.
I tried using IOLO system mechanic pro 8 to try and fix the issues, and that only made things worse. It made my internet browsers not work anymore and caused further system slowdowns. I uninstalled the program, but I think it is still here creeping around.
I ALSO have been getting this problem periodically:
Service Executable has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
szAppName : MsMpEng.exe szAppVer : 1.1.1593.0 szModName : mpengine.dll
szModVer : 1.1.4701.0 offset : 003f0d39
Anyways, PLEASE help me out here! I am pulling my hair out trying to fix these problems. Post what details you need more from me.
