Please download SystemLook from the following link below and save it to your Desktop. Use the correct version 32bit or 64bit.

Thanks for the update and log, we continue:

SSScheduler.exe - bad image. - That is related to "McAfee Security Scan Plus", either uninstall then re-install, or uninstall altogether....

PrivacyIconClient.exe - bad image - That is related to "Intel(R) Management Engine Components" same here, eithee uninstall/re-install or uninstall altogether...

Let me know the outcome, also give an update on any remaining issues or concerns....

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin,
 sorry not to reply earlier. the laptop is for my work. oddly, sometimes at work, your website is not showed up, hope our company is not blocking you guys.
  at this moment, I will live with that 2 bad images because they are doing any harm. but my start manu" button is not working at all. I mentioned in my earlier post. I tried to install "classical shell" but I end up another "bad image' message with the "classic shell".

regards,
tao

Hello Tao,

The original start button was part of Pokki, that really is bad news and should not be on anyones system.

This is the link I recommend for Classic Shell: http://www.classicshell.net/  Actually there is no real need for a start button, Select the Windows key and X key together, all options are displayed....

chkdsk C: /r did reveal there was damage to certain file clusters, one specific being related to Secur.dll

Windows replaced bad clusters in file 182568
of name \Windows\WinSxS\AM65AA~1.163\secur32.dll.

I`m sure we are not dealing with any malware/infection, but possibly registry damage. Also it will be benefical to check the condition of the hard drive....

If the hard drive is still good maybe system refresh will cure possible registry damage.... First create a CD to check the condition of the hard drive, seagate tools instructions at following link:

http://www.seagate.com/gb/en/support/internal-hard-drives/consumer-electronics/ld25-series/seatools-dos-master/

To Refresh the system use the instructions at the following link:

http://www.howtogeek.com/132428/everything-you-need-to-know-about-refreshing-and-resetting-your-windows-8-pc/

Let me know the outcome...

Kevin,
  I burned the Sea tool CD. you could see the files in windows explorer.  however, when I choose to boot from the CD by using PC setting-recovery-restart now-boot form device -USB CD,  the computer will restart and cd in cd rom rotates, however, it finally boot from the HHD. I don't know if there is an alternative tool to check the health of my HDD.

regards,
tao

Hello tao,

I`ve always used Seagate tools, I always enter the Bios and change the boot order putting CD/DVD 1st in the boot order. Basic instructions at the following link:

http://www.howtogeek.com/129815/beginner-geek-how-to-change-the-boot-order-in-your-computers-bios/

If Seagate tools will not work for you try "Hitachi Drive Fitness Test" at the following link....

Kevin,
 I know how to change the bios in windows 7, but windows 8 looks like different to access bios. How about I go directly refresh the system?
