This morning I turn on the comp in Normal mode and it stops for 25 seconds on that blue curvey lined screen and then - YES! we're into the ordinary icons full screen and a message saying "The Systems Config is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode."

Can't connect to the internet.

...but a new dawn breaks!

Download farbar service scanner to your desktop and then run it.

Tick "All" options.
Press "Scan".
It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.

Step 1.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware or if you already have it installed open it, update it and run the quickscan as instructed below.

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application. Please do not accept the trial right now. We just want to run it on demand.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy&Paste the entire report in your next reply.


Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

  • When completed select Uninstall application on close, make sure you copy the logfile first!
  • Now click on: Posted Image
  • Use notepad to open the logfile located at C:\Program Files\ESET\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt.
