It worked for a couple days, but now it won't boot up again. I am not getting the message I got before (Warning!! Some changes in chipset or clock settings ...). I am not getting any message. I can get into Safe Mode. I tried resetting to a previous restore point, but that didn't work. I think there is something major messed up since it tends to suddenly go out for no reason.
Now, when I am in safe mode and start going through the setting a new restore point process, about 20 little notices pop up saying:
A Change to the Default User Folders Requires Approval
An attempt to change your default user folder [shell folder] to %USERPROFILE%\Desktop has been detected.
Shell folders are special folders that Windows uses to indicate the default location for many types of settings and data.
Advice: Since it is not known if this is spyware you should analyze it before deciding to allow it.
I have not allowed allowed this "change to the default user folders"
In any case, I am at a loss.
Because of the latest message, I am not sure whether to post to the malware thread.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
