I've been trying to check my laptop since last week for viruses and malware but the scans just won't finish. I get stuck at 1-6% everytime I do full scans. Quick scans seem to work ok. The scans stop at different points but I noticed that a couple of them froze at Adobe Extension Manager files.

Ive tried a free Registry Scan and it confirmed that I have registry errors. I guess CC Cleaner and Advanced System Care can't really fix my issues.

I even tried CHCKDSK c: /f last night. At first it froze at stage 4 of 5 so I tried to do it again on Safe Mode but it would not go on safe mode so anyway, I ran it again on normal mode and it completed the check (3 of 3)-- no problems detected on C: (?!!)

So, please help, I just really dont want this to get any worse than it already is.

Thanks in advance,
