  1. No I was not looking at ways to get the key, the link covered this point....
  2. Hiya Chay, Run the following and post the produced logs... Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version. If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your secur
  3. Ooops, missed that. I guess the only way forward is to recover important data with Ubuntu or similar then go for a fresh install... The product key is stored so not needed.. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install-winpc/how-to-recover-your-windows-product-key/8687ef5d-4d32-41fc-9310-158f8e5f02e3 This is the current version from FRST log: Windows 10 Home Version 2004 19041.450 (X64) Language: English (United States)
  4. Hiya Collector, Yep that is exactly what is wrong with the PC, I really should have seen that issue from FRST log... The only way I can think to run that last fix again is to use maybe an Ubuntu live CD or USB and make some room. Or possibly take the hard drive out and hook up to another PC, maybe shift the contents of My Documents, Videos, Pictures, Music etc... The following link is to use Ubuntu from CD, you could maybe use rufus or similar to load to USB..... https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/use-ubuntu-live-cd-to-backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/
  5. Hiya Collector, Have a read at the following link, apparently all may not yet be lost.... https://pureinfotech.com/restore-registry-backup-windows-10/ Thanks, Kevin...
  6. Hiya Thread, Not sure what you mean, there was nothing for you to try.. I wanted you to read the reply from nukecad that explains what seems to be a very common gliche with windows 10 and Task Manager.... Thank you, Kevin..
  7. Hiya Collector, I assume you will have seen the following quote in the FRST log? ATTENTION: Could not load system hive. ERROR: The configuration registry database is corrupt. That indicates registry damage, there are no restore points or backup identified in the log. The best way forward is to refresh windows, full instructions at the following link... https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4090-refresh-windows-10-a.html Let me know the outcome. Regards, Kevin..
  8. The FRST fix uploaded ApsInsMonSvc.exe to VirusTotal for analysis, the following link indicates the file as clean.. https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/0bb4fbb73ddd8f3b763e1da78ee66b8f71aaaacb05ad3a9398c14fd12f1cac82/detection When you open that link select "Details" scroll down for identified information. You will note the file actually belongs to Lenovo, is correctly signed and counter signed and has all correct certification. Because of that information I`d confirm the file is definitely legitimate, hence it returns after removal....
  9. What you describe sounds like a new PC is needed, all of your hardware has been round the curcuit a few times. If clean boot makes no difference I would certainly think about an upgrade... Replacing hardware or upgrading is definitely in need of consideration.. If your Motherboard and CPU have seen better days then maybe a new PC is the way to go...
  10. Hiya pdeebq, I`m not seeing any malware or infection in your logs, lets try your system in "Clean Boot" mode and see if that males any difference.. Set windows up for "Clean Boot" mode, full instructions here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/929135 Basically all none MS services are disabled, see how your system runs in that mode. Does that make any difference...? Thanks, Kevin..
  11. Ok lets continue with the following: Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. Alternative download option: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6731-farbar-recovery-scan-tool.html Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version. If your security alerts to FRST either, accept the alert or turn your security off to allow FRST to ru
  12. Hello pdeebq and welcome to Malwarebytes, Have a read of the replies at the following link, specifically the one from nukecad, does that answer your question... https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/252362-cpu-usage-always-at-70-until-task-manager-is-open/ Thanks, Kevin
  13. Hiya Thread and welcome to Malwarebytes, Have a read at the following link, specifically the answer by nukecad.... https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/252362-cpu-usage-always-at-70-until-task-manager-is-open/ Does that answer your query.. Thank you, Kevin..
  14. Download attached fixlist.txt file (end of reply) and save it to the Desktop, or the folder you saved FRST into. "Do not open that file when running FRST fix" NOTE. It's important that both FRST and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. Open FRST and press the Fix button just once and wait. The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or the folder it was ran from. Please post it to your reply. Thanks, fixlist.txt
  15. Hiya Toubster, Probably the file is locked and not allowing any access, try the following: Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from. NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRSTEnglish, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work. NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone. Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix butt
  16. Hello Toubster and welcome to Malwarebytes, Can you upload the problem file to VirusTotal and have it checked please: Go to http://www.virustotal.com/ Click the Choose file button Navigate to the file C:\Windows\system32\ApsInsMonSvc.exe Click the Scan it tab If you get a message saying File has already been analyzed: click Reanalyze file now Copy and paste the URL address back here please. Thanks,
  17. Hiya computerfan321, Regarding Edge, FRST scan is indicating an issue with the following profile: Edge Profile: C:\Users\Christian\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\cId=128000000001363769&path= [2021-03-04] <==== ATTENTION From the internet list the following is known for Brute Force attacks and Spamming: Tcpip\..\Interfaces\{B70DB98F-9F63-46CC-9E9E-ADBFB3245B3E}: [DhcpNameServer] 172.20.10.1 The Scheduled Task list I already prompted you about, there was the following Task: Task: {33818C30-1526-45EC-92B7-BBBDDB4D9
  18. There is a lot wrong with this system, I firmly believe and advise that a fresh install is the way to go. Is that a problem for the owner of this PC..?
  19. OK, thats fine. One other question, there are about 40 entries in Scheduled task list similar to the following, any idea why? Task: {FC33470D-B355-4E42-980C-8614FAA7E3A2} - System32\Tasks\{2D67559E-6E36-4430-BAF6-872000812DEE} => C:\Users\Christian\Downloads\SWTOR_setup.exe
  20. Is the version of windows on this PC legitimate..? The following task would suggest not Task: {33818C30-1526-45EC-92B7-BBBDDB4D988D} - System32\Tasks\AutoKMS => C:\Windows\AutoKMS\AutoKMS.exe
