Howdy Marco, my name is Hoov and I will be helping you with your problem. As it has been a while since you were last helped here and a lot has changed, I am going to post the preliminaries so you can see if anything has changed.
Hello, welcome to SpywareHammer.
I go by Hoov, and I will be helping you with your problem. I must ask you to do a few things for me.
First, tell me everything that you have done, if anything, to try and fix this problem.Also tell me any other problems you are having, no matter how small or long you have been dealing with them.
Second, please only use 1 forum to help clear up your problem. Posting on more than 1 and following instructions from more than 1 forum will cause those helping you to pull out thier hair.
Third, follow my instructions - If you can't for some reason, or if you don't understand something, please tell me. If you deviate from my instructions, tell me, it may make a difference on where we go.
Fourth, Have faith. I will do all I can to get your computer working, and if I can't - someone else here will know something else to try.
Fifth, if we start this fix, I need you to stick with me until the end. Just because your computer is running better does not mean it is fixed.
Before we start trying to fix your computer, you need to make sure your data is backed up. Also let me know of any software you have running that encrypts your harddrive.
One last thing, I need you to tell me if this computer belongs to a school or to a company or orginization of some kind. If it does, please let me know. Also tell me if there is an IT department responsible for this computer.
Now onto trying to fix your computer.
I would like to get a peek at your event viewer logs. I need you to go to the administration tools in Vista / Windows 7. They are in the Control Panel. Open the Admin tools, then open the event viewer. Over on the left hand side expand the window category and then click on System. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in system as the file name, make sure file type EVTX is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Over on the left hand side and click on Application. Then up at the top click on Action and then click on Save Events As, type in application as the file name, make sure file type EVTX is selected, and then navigate so it will save the file to your desktop, then click save. Zip them both up into a single zip file, post them back here in your next reply as attachments.
Do you have another computer you can get online with? If you do then follow the instructions below. If not let me know before proceeding.
Disconnect your computer from the internet. I need you to reboot windows cleanly. To do that please go to the run command and type in msconfig . Once that starts, select selective startup, and then uncheck the load startup items. Now click on the services tab, and down near the bottom of the window, check the box that says Hide all Microsoft Services now go up and uncheck all the services still listed, make sure you scroll down the list if need to unselect all the non Microsoft services. Now click apply, then click OK and reboot the computer.
