  2. Kevin. Hi Kevin. I will difinately look at following your advice. Thanx again for all your help and patience. I see with Panda USB Protection it forms part of free antivirus.... Do you thes sugest I Rather go that route?
  3. Good day Kevin. Thank you for the welwishes. Windows has now been freshly installed on my pc, but i still have to install all 3rd party apps. (Not sure though whether windows security is sufficient or should i go with another. (Unfortunately i have to go with free versions as this lockdown has also placed restrictions on the backpocket). Regards Worrier.
  4. Good day Kevin. Yes I still am. I will reload Windows duri g the weekend. My son is writing exams now and with he is using the mashine most of the time for assignments etc. Will let you know when done if OK?
  5. Hi Kevin. everytime I try to run (even as Admin) from command prompt I receive a message stating that the drive (X) is locked? I also tried from cmd as admin and CHKDSK /r would not rus on restrt, but if I go to Event Viever there is a log available. See attached. Also checked the D/L folder in Admin user ad that one is not corrupted. CHKDSK r.txt
  6. Hi Kevin. At last...Exam time and all 1) I have tried to reset this PC (Keeping my files), But received a error message to the following extent. There was a problem resetting your pc. 2) (With Deleting Everyting) Startup repair couldn't repair your pc. Press Advanced Options to try other options to repair your pc or "Shut Down" Log file D:\WINDOWS\system32\logfiles\srt\srttrail.txt (but this dvd writer does nor work, so no logfile, sorry) I then inseted a bootalble usb with an O/S and went to Command prompt... Ran CHKDSK from there and it worked, I will attach the logfiles generated although I received a message stating"failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50" A rundown of the result attached as "CHKDSK log" Also tried CHKDSK /scan and CHKDSK /spotfix Not one of the last 2 scans ran at restart... Still cannot delete, copy and paste new Downloads folder from root Regards Worrier CHKDSK 2 log.txt CHKDSK log.txt CHKDSK scan log.txt CHKDSK spotfix log.txt
  7. Hi Kevin. Not yet. Haven't had time to get to it. Will try to tonight when I get home from work. Thanks for your patience. Worrier
  8. Hi Kevin I am now back on the original user. Also a no go on the CHKDSK as ADMINISTRATOR. I tried 3x with normal restarts and hard power down. Also tried the sfc /scannow in command prompt. Also did not execute. Then I tried to run Easeus Tools M out of frustration, but there it would not even let me choose the drive (same as when we started this whole process.) Question from a total novice. Would a repair from installation disk not do the trick? Worrier
  9. Hi there Kevin OK will do and report back. ...
  10. OK. Sorry For that, Quick test still shows pass. Waiting far Extended to finish.... Attached log as required Thanx DLGDIAGLOG Test Results.txt
  11. OK. Sorry For that, Quick test still shows pass. Waiting far Extended to finish....
  12. Hi Kevin. SMART Status = Pass (All Attribute Names has a Green Check mark next to it) Thank you Worrier
  13. Hi there Kevin Attached the VEW Log Regards VEW Log.txt
  14. Hi there Kevin I tried to follow the steps to copy the and paste the "Downloads" folder, But the system would not allow me to delete the original d/l folder. (On rightclick I get the option to delete, but then nothing happens) Have also tried chkdsk again and restarted but restart was normal with no scan. I did run the fix you requested, and restarted the machine as per popup. Log attached... (And oh, FRST did an update first) Regards Fixlog.txt
  15. Thanx for the info Kevin. No the school admin should not have access, as we do homeschooling, and I never gave explicit permissions to them either. This "intrusion" had to have happened remotely. Will you please elaborate on your term "enigma" please. Thanx Worrier
