Let's see what we can find on the system that might be causing an issue.  Please run the following scans and post back the logs.



Backup the Registry:

Modifying the Registry can create unforeseen problems, so it always wise to create a backup before doing so.

  • Please download ERUNT from one of the following links: Link1 | Link2 | Link3
  • ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.
  • Double click on erunt-setup.exe to Install ERUNT by following the prompts.
  • Start ERUNT either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup process.
  • Choose a location for the backup.
    • Note: the default location is C:\Windows\ERDNT which is acceptable.

    [*]Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are selected. [*]Click on OK [*]Then click on YES to create the folder.

Note: if it is necessary to restore the registry, open the backup folder and start ERDNT.exe


Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit from HERE

  • Unzip the contents to a folder in a convenient location.
  • Open the folder where the contents were unzipped and run mbar.exe
  • Follow the instructions in the wizard to update and allow the program to scan your computer for threats.
  • Click on the Cleanup button to remove any threats and reboot if prompted to do so.
  • Wait while the system shuts down and the cleanup process is performed.
  • Perform another scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit to verify that no threats remain. If they do, then click Cleanup once more and repeat the process.

  • Shutdown your antivirus to avoid any conflicts.
  • Right click over JRT.exe and select Run as administrator on Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click on XP.
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next reply message
  • When completed make sure to re-enable your antivirus


Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode to your desktop.

Please click on START - All Programs -> Startup

In there you should find a shortcut for ERUNT AutoBackup


Please either delete that entry.  That is causing the alert on reboot because it needs Admin rights. 


Next, please run the following.


Please download the following scanner from Kaspersky and save it to your computer: TDSSkiller

Then watch the following video on how to use the tool and make sure to temporarily disable your security applications before running TDSSkiller.

PC Winvids - How to run Kaspersky TDSSKiller

If any infection is found please make sure to choose SKIP and post back the log in case of a False Positive detection.

Once the tool has completed scanning make sure to re-enable your other security applications.



Next, download Security Check from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

Are you able to download the TDSSKiller link now?


The logs show you have a bad block on one of your disks which is not good.  A bad block though it may be able to mark it to not use it is generally a sign that the drive is probably starting to fail. 


Error: (07/04/2013 08:57:40 PM) (Source: Disk) (User: )
Description: The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block.


Though it may potentially last a while you should prepare for a failure and make sure you backup all your important data to an external drive.


After you backup the drive then try to do a full disk check.  You don't want to do it before the backup as it could stress the drive and cause it to fail sooner and then you wouldn't be able to backup data. 



When ready you want to run the FULL option here for both of your drives:
8. To Scan and Automatically Attempt to Fix Errors and Recover Bad Sectors:  How to Run Disk Check in Windows 7

If your computer has a built-in diagnostics to test the drive then run that.  If not there are some you can find online from the MFG or from disk drive MFG if you need help let me know.

There really is no "fix".   If it were crossed linked files, or invalid indexes, etc then yes it could easily be fixed.  However a bad block is due to physical deterioration that cannot be fixed.  If or when it will escalate to a point that it can no longer reliably save data is unknown.  It could be a year it could be you wake up tomorrow and the drive is just dead. I've had that happen to me twice over the years on my own computer and it's a rude awakening to find that any data that is not backed up is now permanently GONE and cannot be recovered.  That's why I say you should really backup your data now while you can to an external drive.  Then look at buying a new drive as soon as you can and in the meantime keep data backed up just in case.


Please see if you can download TDSSKiller from here:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/

You can certainly try to see if they will warranty replace the drive, doesn't hurt to ask.


Did you disable your antivirus when trying to download TDSSKiller?  Perhaps it's blocking it? 


Please download and run RogueKiller 32 bit to your desktop.

RogueKiller<---use this one for 64 bit systems

Quit all running programs.

For Windows XP, double-click to start.

For Vista or Windows 7-8, do a right-click on the program, select Run as Administrator to start, & when prompted Allow to run.

Click Scan to scan the system.

When the scan completes > Close out the program > Don't Fix anything!

Don't run any other options, they're not all bad!!!!!!!

Post back the report which should be located on your desktop.

There was a little bit of junk but nothing major.  I would still like to have you run the TDSSKiller though just to make sure there is nothing there.


Also please run this now.  I'll check on you some time tomorrow as it's quite late here for me now.


Next, download Security Check from here or here.

  • Save it to your Desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
  • A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
