Hello SweetTech, I appologize it has been a few days since I last reported. Ive spent the majority of the last 3 days away helping a close family member with their move into a new home and getting their place into comfortable state.

As for the GMER Scan, once again it ran for probably an hour and a half, everything seemed to be doing fine, but then the next time I glanced over at the screen everything had dissapeared and all that remained showing was my monitor's background picture. I continued to leave the computer alone for the next 4 hours to see if anything changed, which it did not, so I then manually reset the computer after failing to do so with Alt+Ctrl+Delete. Anticipating something like this may occur, I even Un-checked Devices before running the scan. Any other suggestions perhaps?

Hi!

No worries.

hmm... Okay. It seems like GMER does't want to run on your computer. Lets try running this scans.
