Apologizes for the delay. My work schedule has been a bit hectic lately, so I'm just getting a chance to get caught up on my logs right now.
How are things running with the computer? Are you able to boot up normally in Windows?
I'm thinking that file I inquired with you about is most likely malware related, so I'm going to go ahead and remove it.

- Checked (ticked) all items and click on Remove Selected
- After it has removed the items, Notepad will open. Please post this log in your next reply. You can also find the log in the Logs tab. The bottom most log is the latest
