I have two issues:

1) On my C: drive, it now says fvrfvrv (C:). What is this "fvrfvrv" and how can I get rid of it.

2) I get an annoying Windows popup message on startup and during operation it pops on when I remove it. It says: "Windows has blocked some startup programs. Windows blocks programs that require permission to run when Windows starts. Click to view blocked programs." When I click it, up comes up Windows Defender. However, on everything's "classification" it says "permitted". I would like to know why I am getting this message and how to stop it.

Thank you.

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 an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

I will do that but wanted to add the following:

I ran my Avira anti-virus and did a scan. While I did not pick up any viruses, etc., it DID pick up a whopping 138 "hidden objects". I did not know what "hidden objects" meant so I did some checking around and it seems 'hidden objects' are system files and that some malware is in my system to have caused this result. I do regular maintenance for malware with several good pieces of software, and haven't come up with anything lately. Please reply as to what this 138 'hidden objects' results may indicate, if you have any ideas. Thanks.

They can be a variety of things, they could be malware, or they could be legitimate files that are locked, preventing Avira from scanning them.

It would be best not to touch those files.
