  1. Glad we could help. If you need this topic reopened, please send a Private Message to any one of the moderating team members. Please include a link to this topic with your request. This applies only to the originator of this thread. Other members who need assistance please start your own topic in a new thread. Thanks
  2. Not trying to be hard on you. Just trying to get you to slow down and take some time to learn more is all. In the long run, knowing more about how to manage and control a computer will benefit you. The quick and easy get's it working but then tomorrow when you want to do something else you won't be able to without asking. Wouldn't it be better to learn so that you can help yourself and others better in the future. DISM - I don't know if it has error codes you can check or not. So, regardless if it ran or not, without error codes or output to check you don't know what it did and if it needs your help. To automate silently you need to know what it did so you will know if there is something more you need to do. The same with SFC, you can't just run it blindly and ignore errors or issues requiring user intervention.
  3. Also, by not creating by command line you've robbed yourself of valuable experiences in learning much more about how a computer works. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44928383/why-cant-get-exit-code-of-batch-file-executed-with-command-start https://stackoverflow.com/questions/34968009/which-cmd-exe-internal-commands-clear-the-errorlevel-to-0-upon-success https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24722757/how-to-call-a-batch-file-that-is-one-level-up-from-the-current-directory/24725044#24725044
  4. If you are running Windows 10, Windows 8.1 or Windows 8, first run the inbox Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool prior to running the System File Checker. https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/help/929833/use-the-system-file-checker-tool-to-repair-missing-or-corrupted-system DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth How do you know if DISM was successful or not and to then run SFC? On slower systems, it may take 30 minutes or more to complete those tasks Why do you keep ignoring advice not to run multiple times? It's your computer so you can do as you like but remind me to keep you away from my computers.
  5. Again, if the hard drive is failing, then running malware scans, automation routines, SFC, DISM are going to put undue stress on the hard drive and cause it to really fail even sooner. I would not recommend doing what you're asking to do. That said. I was going to create the task for you, but it would actually be better to learn how to do on your own. The following links are pretty good links to show you how to do it on your own. Just takes some time to read and practice to gain experience. Creating a Scheduled Task in Windows 10 https://www.technipages.com/scheduled-task-windows Microsoft article on command line Scheduled Task creation: Schtasks.exe https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/schtasks Main Article from Microsoft https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/taskschd/task-scheduler-start-page Rob van der Woude's Scripting Pages (follow along on this guys pages and you'll learn quite a bit about automating things in Windows) SCHTASKS Command line front-end for Windows' Task Scheduler https://www.robvanderwoude.com/schtasks.php
  6. If you have an old hard drive that you believe is failing (can be tested) then causing any type of automated process that reads/writes to the drive is going to cause more stress and cause failure sooner. Creating a task is easy. I just don't think it's prudent to run that often. I'll help you with it though a little later today. I have to run and go help someone else with something else right now.
  7. The question is WHY? Normally one might only run such a command or set of commands maybe once or twice in the life of the computer. Running it over and over would not seem to serve much real purpose.
  8. I don't think they will come back but if they do, let us know.

STEP 01 If you're already running Malwarebytes 3 then open Malwarebytes and check for updates. Then click on the Scan tab and select Threat Scan and click on Start Scan button.

Right-click on the program and select Run as Administrator to start the tool. Accept the Terms of use. Wait until the database is updated. Click Scan Now. When finished, please click Clean & Repair. Your PC should reboot now if any items were found. After reboot, a log file will be opened. Copy its content into your next reply. RESTART THE COMPUTER Before running Step 3 STEP 03 Please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.

It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply. The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). If you've, run the tool before you need to place a check mark here. Please attach the Additions.txt log to your reply as well. Thanks Ron

  12. Okay, please make sure your Date and Time are correct for your computer.

  13. Thank you for the logs. Going forward please try to attach the logs if possible instead of copy/paste. Let me have you go run the following clean up for Chrome. Once that's done then let's try running another antivirus scanner from Kaspersky and see what if anything it finds as a secondary confirmation. Please download and run the following Kaspersky antivirus scanner to remove any found threats Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool Let me know if it finds anything or not Thanks Ron
  14. Please review the following website and read it before continuing and then do a Hard Reset back to Factory Defaults for your router.

  15. This is an ancient topic, as such, I'm going to close it. If you want to discuss further please open a new topic. A Lifetime license, as long as not stolen, illegal, keygen, etc. never expires. You will need proof of purchase from a valid vendor. eBay and similar sites are almost always stolen licenses and activation may be deactivated at any time if or when discovery shows the license to be in use on multiple computers. (normally due to theft). Thank you
