Hey, :)
  • Download Windows Repair (All in One) from this site
  • Install the program then run it.
NOTE 1. In Windows Vista, 7 and 8 right click on the program, click "Run As Administrator".
NOTE 2. Disable your antivirus program before running Windows Repair.
  • Go to Step 2 and click on Check button next to 1. See If Check Disk Is Needed.
  • If the tool indicates that the Check Disk is needed click on Do It button next to 2. Check Disk. In that case make sure you restart computer.

  • Once the above is done go to Step 3 and allow it to run System File Check by clicking on Do It button:

Yes, there is probably a hardware error. I would recommend opening a new topic in the correct subforum of this forum.

 

Hello,
in my opinion your PC is clean. :) If you would like to donate some money to me that I can buy some beer, then click on the button paypal.gif. I'd really appreciate it, my friend. :)


We need to remove the tools we've used during cleaning your machine.
  • Download Delfix from here and run it (If you have Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 please do a Right click on the Delfix icon and select Run as Administrator).
  • Ensure Remove disinfection tools is ticked
    Also tick:
    • Create registry backup
    • Purge system restore
    delfix.jpg
  • Click Run
The program will run for a few moments and then notepad will open with a log. Please paste the log in your next reply

 

Exercise common sense

Having security programs installed is very helpful to you, but none of them have the gift of human thought. The best way to make sure you don't get infected is to look before you leap. Be careful of what websites you visit - if a site looks suspicious, trust your instincts and get out of there. Be careful of what attachments you open in emails and files you download from websites - check them over carefully and look at the file extensions to make sure that you know what you're getting. Using peer-to-peer file sharing programs or downloading cracks and keygens is something else to avoid - the files you will be downloading are infected in the vast majority of cases, and the benefits simply aren't worth the risk to your computer.

Keep up on Windows updates

Along with keeping all of the security programs that you choose to use updated, it is also important to keep up on system updates from Microsoft, as these patch critical security vulnerabilities and help to keep you safe. Typically the windows update icon will appear in your taskbar when new updates are available, whenever you see it you should open the menu up and install the updates that are available. Although it may be an annoyance, that little bit of extra time it takes to stay updated is very well worth it instead of getting infected from an exploit and having to clean your PC again.

Slow computer?

If your computer begins to slow down again in the future for no particular reason, your first step should not be to come back to the malware forum. As your computer ages and is used, its parts wear, files and programs accumulate, and its performance speed can decrease. To restore your computer's performance to its best possible level, follow the steps in this guide written by tech expert Artellos.

Keep Safe! :thumbsup:
