Download and Install Combofix
Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
- Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
- Accept the disclaimer and allow to update if it asks
- When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
- Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.
3. If after the reboot you get errors about programmes being marked for deletion then reboot, that will cure it.
Please make sure you include the combo fix log in your next reply as well as describe how your computer is running now

Hi again, I after program rebooted I tried to do this in normal mode. I get about 4 seconds before 'internet has stopped working' message. I get that 3 times and then it won't refresh, I have to go back through to the post from the start. I have to go back into safe mode to do this, my last post took some getting done to, seems to know what I'm up too. I know that stupid, but it seems that way. this whole reply I haven't seen any errors, but the last took 5 goes to get enough time to get the txt attached.
I also got a message when shutting down to restart to go back into safe mode, a program was stopping the shutdown, looked like a webcam icon, I didn't get all the letters, 94F11419-869E-47aa-9563-F something something
sorry to be a pain, thanks again for helping

First conduct a repair install of Windows 7 if you have the CD
Second take up MS offer of an upgrade to Windows 10 and install that
Either options will resolve all problems currently being experienced
Whilst you are thinking about that could I have a fresh FRST scan please

Done. this is an older laptop I'm just using for when I'm away at work. I'm not sure of where the windows 7 disc is so I guess we'll take the latter an go with the windows 10 version. we are limited to 2G of data through the camp WiFi, I'm guessing that won't be enough to do the download? is it just as simple as downloading something like MSE, all auto? also, can it be done in safe mode, I don't seem to get as many errors in safe mode.
Big THANKS for all the time you spent on this too, i would have brought the hammer out ages ago

I'm guessing you knew but I only hit the more details option before after the 'internet is not working' message and its telling me its a protection thing as a program is trying the do something incorrectly and maybe be malicious software, or something to that effect. not sure if that helps but I thought I'd throw it in. I was going to re-edit the last reply but it kept throwing up the 'stopped working' thing to many times so I gave up.

You may already have windows 10 downloaded as GWX is present :
Display hidden files and folders.
Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
Then look on your C drive in windows explorer is there a $windows~bt folder ?
Looking at all this I am now beginning to feel that windows is badly corrupted
Is that 2GB of data a day or a week ?
Have a look at this page https://www.microsof...nload/windows10

hey mate, 2G of data is for the month, LOL. our swing is only 2 weeks though so i'll be home next Wednesday.

2G is for the month, LOL. we do a 2/1 roster so i'll be home next Wednesday.
Attached is a scan done in normal mode. I wouldn't think there would be a difference but I thought I'd try it anyway. i'll take a look in the hidden folders.
took a look through c drive, couldn't find any folder by that name.

I tried defender again, does the error code 0x80004004 mean anything?
Thanks again for all your help, I couldn't imagine doing more than hitting the refresh button until it poked out the other side
