 I have looked through my EventViewer logs and found some entries of concern that are in "Error" category. I need to investigate this further to determine what is going on with my system or if this is malware-related or both.  It is also possible that I may be having signs of "hardware failure" so I need assistance in in investigating that as well.

In my EventViewer I have found listings noting problem " boot-start or system start driver failed to load" for System Control Manager 7026. This occurred for items noted "qxuaja, xtoxpl, and qhpbzs"...[I do NOT know what these items are or how they got on my system and I cannot find much of any info on them via Google.

 A post by RKinner seemed similar to my problems.  xxx.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/312670-troroot-kit/page-10?hl=%2Bqxuaja#entry2118628
 I checked my computer>Drivers>Hidden Drivers> Non-Plug and Play and found those 3 entries there.  I am assuming that I have a service and/or driver
related problem.  I appreciate any assistance.  Please let me know if you need anything else.  Thank you.

You have mentioned the possibility of malware so it is important that you check that out first, please see the GTG malware redirection information 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).
