wellll hello everyone. ive used guides and what not here before but now im lost. and im about to pull my hair out. so many random things happening. heres just a few things i remember right off my head. its a dell inspiron 17r with an i5. ok so... the battery icon will disappear, and i have to go to device manager to disable the batt and enable it to get the icon back. when i start windows half the time avg will be disabled. other times it wont. i do not change avg settings. the internet will disconnect, randomly be slow, have checked the router with other devices, not the router or ISP. programs will hang and sometimes not even work unless i restart the program. and now most recently my bluetooth has stopped working. its not any device, ive narrowed it down to a software issue. ive uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. nothing. system sounds will change now and then. i think theres more but ill add as i think or see them.


so heres the really interesting parts...

ran spybot, updated, deep scan, no results. ran in safe mode, no results

ran avg, updated, deep scan. no results. ran in safe mode, no results

ran mbam, updated, deep scan. had some things come up but nothing major, fixed anyway. ran in safe mode, more things. fixed them

ran ccleaner in safe mode, fix the normal issues. ran the reg cleaner fixed the few issues.

ran decrp my computer in safe mode, holy [bleep]... fixed issues and the whole book of reg errors from the cleaning part. thought it fixed it. nope. sped up the system some doing that but the problems remain.


i feel like its a infection of something but nothing has found any trace of anything. so idk if a program, an infection, or if there was an infection and now problems are coming up idk. please someone help me.

Recommend reading these instructions first: Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide

Then click here to start a new topic the Virus Spyware, and Malware removal forum.

After you've been given a clean bill of health from one of our Malware experts, and if you're still having the same problem, return to this thread se we can pursue some other options.
