last week's Windows 7 update? (Resolved)


Best Answer phillpower2 , 30 October 2015 - 10:02 AM

Hi all

everything OK until the weekend when after what appeared to be a less than satisfactory Windows update I can not use System Restore to go back to last week (main problem signature  6.1.7600.16385). I started the process because I was not hearing sound despite all drivers etc being in place and working properly. I also can not get the wireless card to communicate with the router now (although I still have access with the wired desktop). I ran a CHKDSK /r overnight but have not had the chance yet to check the outcome of this (in fact the machine rebooted so would also appreciate here knowing how to look up the outcome of the CHKDSK). I am naturally wondering if it is either a system corrupt or a virus (my suspicions were aroused here when a malwarebytes AV scan kept stopping after a few seconds in safe mode). Obviously there is a recommended list of workarounds for this but I would appreciate what the current line of thinking on this was? speccy profile below followed by minitoolbox output

 

many thanks!

:welcome:   Virtual Chrissy Wissy,

 

The sound issue must be put aside for the moment as you have bigger issues going on.

 

It is entirely possible that you have malware on your computer but only the experts on the removal forums can help you with that, if there is any hint that the computer is infected I will provide the GTG malware redirection information for you.

 

Your Speccy report contains more than one concern as does the minitoolbox log;

 

You have the following AV and other security software/protection on your computer;

 

Windows Defender
Windows Defender: Enabled
 
Firewall
Firewall: Enabled
Display Name: Outpost Security Suite
 
Antivirus
avast! Antivirus
Antivirus: Enabled
Company Name: AVAST Software
Product Version: 10.4.2233
Virus Signature Database: Up to date
Ad-Aware Antivirus
Antivirus: Disabled
Virus Signature Database: Up to date
Outpost Security Suite
Antivirus: Disabled
Virus Signature Database: Up to date
ESET Online Scanner v3 (HKLM-x32\...\ESET Online Scanner) (Version:  - )

IObit Malware Fighter 

Surfing Protection (HKLM-x32\...\IObit Surfing Protection_is1) (Version: 1.2 - IObit)

McAfee Security Scan Component Host Service

Panda Cloud Cleaner (HKLM-x32\...\{92B2B132-C7F0-43DC-921A-4493C04F78A4}_is1) (Version: 1.1.2 - Panda Security)
 
As a starting point I suggest that with the exception of Avast you uninstall all of the above. 
 
Having all of the above is not only crippling your computers performance as the programs fight for resources but also putting it at risk of malware attack as the AVs can cancel each other out and leave you with no protection at all.
 
You are running low on free storage space on the C: partition where Windows is, such low free storage space can prevent Windows from updating, cause data corruption, system instability, an unbootable computer and in a worse case scenario the HDD itself can fail.
 
Partition 2
Partition ID: 
Disk #0, Partition #2
Disk Letter: 
C:
File System: 
NTFS
Volume Serial Number: 
B8457168
Size: 
446 GB
Used Space: 
389 GB (87%)
Free Space: 
56 GB (13%)
 
 

 

The following software should be removed;

 

µTorrent (HKCU\...\uTorrent) (Version: 3.4.2.38913 - BitTorrent Inc.)

Torrents are notorious for containing malware and downloading them should be avoided.

 

Advanced SystemCare 8 (HKLM-x32\...\Advanced SystemCare 8_is1) (Version: 8.4.0 - IObit)

Such programs are at best a gimmick and most often they do more harm than good, they land you with problems were there were none with the suggested fix requiring a fee from the people that landed you in the mess, see miekiemoes' Blog here

 

Auslogics Registry Cleaner (HKLM-x32\...\{8D8024F1-2945-49A5-9B78-5AB7B11D7942}_is1) (Version: 4.4.0.0 - Auslogics Labs Pty Ltd)

A good tool but dangerous if used incorrectly, the average user does not need or can safely use it, uninstall it, this type of software is also covered in miekiemoes blog.

 

Can be kept but used with caution;

 

CCleaner (HKLM\...\CCleaner) (Version: 5.00 - Piriform)

Another good tool but should only be used for getting rid of leftover drivers and the like, the registry cleaning element again should not be used unless you know what you are doing.

thanks ever so much for the kind reply! can certainly remove the likes of µTorrent (think I only looked at it once upon someone else's recommendation 4-5 years ago and never used since). The only AV and firewall currently "resident" and active are avast and Outpost, respectively, so I can certainly remove all traces of the rest. Do I have to repost in the removal forums or would they be monitoring this one (guess not)? thanks again

For now at least I suggest that you only keep Avast and use Windows own Firewall as that is all that you need.

 

No need to consider posting on malware atm, freeing up some space on the HDD and getting Windows fully updated are your priority, this will most likely resolve most if not all of the present problems that you are having, see my canned text below;

 

Please note that in order to avoid data corruption and/or mechanical HDD failure for data only HDDs you must always have a minimum of 10% of the HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space and between and 15 and 20% of a HDDs overall storage capacity available as free space if the OS is on it, the free space allows for information to be copied to and from the drive efficiently.

Not having the above can render a computer inoperable if the HDD concerned has the OS on it due to the MBR (Master Boot Record) becoming damaged/corrupt, please see information @ http://pcsupport.abo...sterbootrec.htm

 

 

Uninstall any old software, games, pictures, videos, music etc off the C: drive and preferably until you have 100 to 110GB of free space on the boot drive.

 

In addition to the above, all of the following should be gotten rid of;

These are also bogging down your computer, regarding Driver Booster in particular, see my canned below;

 

Please note that drivers should never be updated unless it is to address a known issue, if a driver is installed needlessly you can end up creating the very issue that the updated driver was intended to correct, rolling back to the previous driver does not always work and waiting for the next driver update can take some time and also not work. 

 

 

You are welcome btw  :)

a million apologies Phil, I thought the previous posting got through (I have ISP issues at the moment, see below). Ironically, after ruthlessly restricting what was being loaded I was able to roll back to the previous Windows version that had proved impossible previously. All then worked as normal (current issues with my ISP notwithstanding, I think recent news stories will indicate who that is....)  thank you once again
