  1. a few things that I do not know/not understand what they referring to , but I assume the one Called MBR is refer to Master boot record but I’ve never heard of a GPT before until that when I get this Windows 10 Device and not really sure what the GPT is . every time want to install a windows 10 a fresh then an error message is shows up which is all about windows cannot be installed on this drive . not sure the exact error message but almost like this one Windows cannot be installed to this disk the selected disk is of the GPT partition style but however I was forced to install the windows anyway because there no other way , how do I know if the hard disk of the device is came up with MBR or GPT support ? is there an easy method to solve this problem ? Note : I’ve never seen such problem on non windows 10 devices and I never deal with such problem before
  2. I haven't used one of my computers for one and a half of year. I remember it was filled with viruses. So I dusted my six-year-old computer off today and I set about repairing it. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and RogueKiller removed most of trojans and rootkits. But one thing still persist: computer can suddenly crash. Before cleaning, it even coudn't stand 10 minutes. Now the deadline of its work is about 1,5 hour after turning on. So it looks it overheats quickly, yeach? But: PSU is new.It's not hot inside/outside.The computer was cleaned inside (no dust).I take special malware into my consideration. Maybe the one concerning boot sector? OS:Windows XP
  3. I tried to drag and drop a file onto this page to add it as an attachment. I am not sure if that page posted. But I don't see that I have another option here. My computer slows to a crawl whenever I plug in the ethernet cable or start my browser. I am running Comodo Internet Security and Avast Free Antivirus. I ran Malwarebytes again after updating, and it seems to provide some relief, but I am not sure it got all the Malware. I also ran Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and the logs are attached. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Streets FRST.txt Addition.txt
  4. I got one post from one of the other helpers here, but now it has been three days since I heard from him. Is anyone else able to help me out? Here is a copy of my first post: My computer slows to a crawl whenever I plug in the ethernet cable or start my browser. I am running Comodo Internet Security and Avast Free Antivirus. I ran Malwarebytes again after updating, and it seems to provide some relief, but I am not sure it got all the Malware. I also ran Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and the logs are attached. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Streets Attached Files Here is a copy of my post after I got some help in a reply: Hello [Name available on request]! I removed Avast, as per instructions. I downloaded, AdwCleaner. I ran Scan and Clean. I ran FRST. I pressed the Fix button. I will attach the text files to this reply. Please note also the error message I got when running FRST, posted above. (I hope to be able to figure out this forum thing soon.) You are a great help. Here are the files I uploaded: Streets Note, I did remove Avast, so I have only one Antivirus program. Any help would be appreciated. Streets Addition.txt AdwCleanerS0.txt Fixlog.txt FRST.txt
  5. First I want to say Thank you in advance to everyone helping me with this question and even those who have taken the time just to read this post. The problem I am having is I accidently downloaded a virus meaning I was running Norton and the real time scanner was slowing down the system so I disabled it (DOH!) forgot to turn it back on and I think a virus snuck in through one of my installations, anyhow I have swept the whole system with norton, uninstalled swept with AVG free, unistalled swept with superANTIspyware, swept with MalWareBytes Uninstalled, Swept with Eset trial version Unistalled. No pesky ads on webbrowser but IE still loads pages slow though internet connection is good boot time is tremendously slow considering too that it used to take around five seconds max. I am using a Toshiba All-In-One with windows 8(not 8.1) and a preinstalled factory system with no system disks but a partition with a image for reinstallation, I know how to do this and I have already backed up all my files, call me a Homer but I had a feeling boot time speeds might be due to a virus implanted on the cmos,bios or mbr so I downloaded AVast AswMBR which is scanning right at this moment and MbrCheck from geekstogo which found a non standard or infected MBR or unknown MBR code, I would type Yes to repair but I heard online that doing so can wipe your data and stop you from being able to use the system recovery tool on your computer plus I am not sure wheither this is actually a infected MBR or Unknown. I still have'nt even looked into fixing the cmos or bios, though I did hear the bios chips from mid 90s up are non infectable though I need a bit more evidence to believe call me a skeptic. Anyway I really hope you can help, and if not thanks for taking time to read this, I do appreciate it. Cheers.
  6. Hi, Further to my pos, attached are the scan results for the Farbar tool. I had to run it on the USB drive (as the HD is not useable) Obviously as the D drive is missing, its not showing in the addition.txt file as a drive. thx Addition.txt FRST.txt
  7. Hey there y'all. I could really use some help if anyone is up to the task. I'll try to explain in as much detail as possible. Also, I have minimal experience with virus removal in general so please ignore my ignorance. My computer runs fine most of the time. It may be a little slower because of wear, but speed is not the issue here. What concerns me is when I'm in the middle of research, a paper, or what seems to be anything of any significance, my computer drops the BSOD on me which is then always shortly followed by a 10 minute start-up repair. Every time I run a scan I get the same two files, and they seem unaffected by Malwarebytes removal tool. They are: Vendor/ Category/ Item/ Other Trojan.Agent File C:\\Windows\svchost.exe Trojan.Agent Memory Process C:\\Windows\svchost.exe 1624 What do you think? Thanks
