I am having serious issues. My laptop has been running really slow lately and freezing up to the point I have to restart, and the process repeats. This morning, I got a message saying that I may be a victim of software counterfeiting. I tried running the sfc /scannow, but it freezes at 34% and it tells me Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation. A couple of weeks ago, I ran a few different scans - AdAware, Malwarebytes, and Avast - none of those found anything. Spybot did detect Babylon Toolbar, and I thought it was removed, but upon running that scan again this morning, it's still there. I have also seen the blue screen of death several times over the past month, and again this morning.
I lost my mother Monday morning, and have hundreds of photos of her on my laptop that I am terrified of losing before I get the chance to back them up. I am having trouble backing anything up because the computer freezes too often, and I have hundreds of thousands of photos (avg. 10mb each) that would take days to copy over.
Edited to say I tried running OTL as suggested but it keeps freezing up and stopping, even in safe mode.
