Extract Here will do.

 

No,  just right click on FRST and Run As Admin.  Once FRST comes up click on FIX.

OK.  You are right.  I didn't check first.  Go ahead and just double click on fix10.vbs.

 

If FRST doesn't see the fixlist then you either didn't download it or you downloaded it to a different folder or you have already run the fixlist and it's been deleted by FRST..  FRST says it is Running from C:\Users\Luke\Downloads so that's where we need the fixlist.  Try downloading it again.

I expect it was that leftover avast driver.  Guess FRST doesn't remove it correctly.

 

Following the System Restore instructions on http://www.dell.com/.../19/SLN85604/ENstarting where it says:

From the Advanced Boot Options menu

I did the restore but it looks like it didnt back up all my programs.

Is there a way to retrieve programs like Quickbooks?

Which Restore Point did you use?
 
 
Run FRST again as before.  Make sure Addition.txt is checked and hit Scan.  Post both logs.

It didnt ask me for a restore point. it only said it would gave me the option to restore.

 

I am a little worried if I run FRST it will knock my keyboard off again.

Just do a FRST scan with Addition.txt checked.  That won't change anything.

Can I ask you first how I can find the product key for Microsoft Office 2010.

The program needs to be reactivated and is asking for the product key which

I do not have.

I would do another System Restore from Windows this time.

 

In the search box type:  system restore

 

and hit Enter

 

System Restore will pop up and show you a recommended restore point.  I would click on Choose A Different Restore Point and then next.

 

See if you can find the one that was done by JRT or the last Windows Update:

18-06-2016 11:12:40 Windows Update
