MBAM only found one problem. That seems suspicious.
Actually I would deem that a good sign myself.
Going back to this you posted initially:-
I went to Action Center and found that the Windows Security Service was turned off. When I tried to turn it on via the Action Center, it gave me a message that it can't be started. I typed "services" into the run command and security center was indeed, disabled. I set it for automatic, and then turned it on
Set this back to Automatic(Delayed Start) please >> then reboot the machine.
Re-scan with FSS:
Delete FSS.txt from the desktop >> empty the Recycle Bin
- Then right-click FSS.exe and select Run as Administrator to start the program.
- Select all available options.
- Then click on the Scan tab.
- When the scan is complete, it will produce a log named FSS.txt.
- Post the contents in your next reply.
Download the attached hddcheck.bat below and save to your Desktop:-
Now right-click on hddcheck.bat and select Run as Administrator to run the batch file. A blank command window will open on the desktop, then close in a few minutes. This is normal and the batch file itself will self-delete when completed.
A file icon named checkhd.txt should appear on desktop. Please post the contents of this file in your next reply along with the new Farbar Service Scanner log.
