You can rename the title, and maybe outline the steps you want to take? It's almost dinner time here, so I'm signing off until tomorrow.

Thanks @tkmops

Go ahead and shut down your computer tonight. Tomorrow when you turn it on please grab new FRST and ADDITIONS.TXT log files from FRST and we'll go from there to look at removing old software and cleaning up a bit.

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press the Scan button.
  • 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). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Thank you

Thanks for the fast response. As I do eBay, and can't afford NOT to have my PC up, I try to limit my re-boots(I've had some BSOD's in the past). I will post back after my next reboot and 'dust bunny' canned air clean up.

Well if the system is that critical for you then I do hope you have a good solid imaging backup in place in case some type of hardware failure or software failure or infection.

General clean up would include cleaning cache, cookies, temp, etc so knowing your passwords, etc would also be needed. I don't want to jeopardize your business but clean up does require time and often multiple reboots

Yes, I have a backup. I regularly clean my cache, cookies, temp, etc...using CCleaner, and clear browsing data from my chrome. Passwords are secure(not online anywhere). Will post back soon.
