If its been 3 days or more, please post Here, with a link to your original topic.

If it hasn’t been three days, try to remain calm, and remember we are all volunteers here, and we do have our own personal lives and responsibilities. There are hundreds of other uses also waiting for help as well :).

Looks like you are already getting some help. If your business is suffering then I would suggest getting a paid professional onsite to fix it for you - business is business and time is money.

Sorry I have a real paying job, a real life and those come first.
You're Acer is / was infected with a MBR rootkit infection. MBR stands for Master Boot Record.
You may end up needing to do a system repair because of it.

I noticed the following in your logs.

Drive C: | 72.65 Gb Total Space | 2.64 Gb Free Space | 3.63% Space Free | Partition Type: FAT32
Drive D: | 73.43 Gb Total Space | 7.96 Gb Free Space | 10.84% Space Free | Partition Type: FAT32

Having less than 15% free especially on the main drive will cause all sorts of havoc with the MBR and general overall system performance. There is no room for swap files, saving data, or defrag.
You need to clear off some programs/data, or a bigger hard drive.
