Thanks for the update which unfortunately means I must hold off for now until you get the all clear of malware by the experts over on the malware forums, please see below;
I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here'
topic found here
. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum
. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT
post the logs in this thread.
If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS
thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).Additional guidance;
1: Do not create a topic on the malware forum unless you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself.
2: If you do need to start a topic there provide a link to this thread so that steps that have already been taken can be checked.
3: As the Malware Techs are extremely busy you may not receive an instant reply, if you have waited for three days then post in the Waiting Room http://www.geekstogo...e-waiting-room/
be sure to identify the issue as malware related and provide a link to your malware topic.
