Please rewrite your question.  It doesn't make sense.  If we are to help you fix your system, we need to have a better idea of the problems you are having.  We help people with removing malware, diagnosing and fixing operating systems and application software, and to diagnose hardware issues.  Our services are completely free, there are no charges for what we do and we help a considerable number of people every year.

@Davidbin, while we appreciate your willingness to help, this is an old topic dating back a number of months, with no response from the original poster.  The poster never logged in again, nor did they bother to even look at my response.  Adding a suggestion at this time, far after the original topic was started is simply a waste of time.  And, there is no way for you to even know whether the circumstances have changed in the interim.

Second, this particular board on our forum is not used for solving issues, it is only for asking a question as to where to post relevant questions. 

Third, a comment on your suggestion, while MBAM is an excellent product, and we know and respect the developers personally, it is not a universal solution to all computer issues.  The rather confused, and garbled post by the OP gave little hint whether the problems were hardware, operating system or software related.  We do not ever recommend doing something without knowing what the actual problem is.  It is usually completely useless to make suggestions like yours until you know what issues need addressing.  All that usually happens from that kind of suggestion is confusion.  Suppose the system won't boot.  What have we accomplished by telling the OP to install and run MBAM?  Absolutely nothing other than losing his confidence that we know what we are doing.

Finally, we strongly recommend that regular members here refrain from making any suggestions that  might relate to possible malware.  Our Staff here all receives significant training before they're permitted to respond to malware issues.  When I say significant, I mean six to twelve months of intensive hands on training from a qualified teacher on malware diagnostic and removal techniques.   It is generally a good idea to let a Staff member respond to any possible malware related issues.  Premature, or incorrect use, of anti-malware tools can occasionally kill an otherwise salvageable system, and it is not a good idea to simply jump into a problem like this before understanding the nature of the malware involved, if indeed its malware in the first place.

Having said all this, we really do appreciate members who are interested in helping, but tend to discourage this type of "jump in with a quick suggestion, then disappear" type of help.  It usually does more harm than good.
