What is PCProtect?


PCProtect is malware. What is PCProtect exe . I would boot up in Safe Mode again, or Normal if you have to, and bring up Task Manager again (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and check to see if explorer.exe is running. If not, Click on File in the Task Manager toolbar, select New Task (Run), and type explorer.exe in the Open box and click OK. If all goes well, your icons and Start Menu will appear and you can start cleaning up. Otherwise, you could try again and type appwiz.cpl in the Open box to bring up the Programs and Features to remove any bad programs you may find. Malware removal can takes years of experience, so I will leave it at that to try for a starting point.

No start task bar in safe mode


It sounds like explorer.exe is being turned off. When you log in to Safe Mode hit Ctl+Alt+Del to bring the Task Manager and see if explorer.exe is running under Processes. If not, you can go to the Applications tab in Task Manager and click the New Task button and simply type in explorer.exe.
If this does not give you your Start Menu and Task Bar then you need to take your computer back to the repair service and have them fix it properly this time. Otherwise, you'll have to reinstall the operating system.

Errors on page and pages loading slowly, please help


You probably have a virus or infection. Boot your system into Safe Mode With Networking (this will give you internet connectivity) then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. When it boots up all the way, open your internet browser, then download and install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.


Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.



Reset Internet Explorer by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Internet Options. When Internet Options open, click the Advanced Tab then look down and click Reset Internet Explorer settings.



Try using another browser. Internet Explorer is the worst browser there is, try the faster and safer browsers.




Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome. Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they are faster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefox from Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on them to go to their site to do the download and install.

Hard drive not showing in explorer


Maybe a virus has hidden it. It seems like you are booting up ok and everything seems to be normal since you are able to run explorer. The drive is there otherwise you wouldn't be able to run explorer.

Try booting up in safe mode then checking explorer or click Start/My Computer to see if the drive is there.

Turn off your computer, then hit the power button to turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and let it boot up. Things will look different in safe mode. The desktop will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

When you are on the blank screen try to press CTRL+ALT+DEL on your keyboard at the same time. it should bring up the task manager window. now, click on FILE > New Task Run > Type in EXPLORER.EXE and press Ok. it should show you your Taskbar, desktop wallpaper, desktop icons

This does not appear to be a display issue but more of a failure of explorer to load. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del so it brings up task manager. Click file then go to new task and type Explorer and see if all of your icons and such show up. If they do you will want to install a spyware remover such as spybot search and destroy from safer-networking to check for any spyware that is preventing explorer from running. Also check your event viewer in safe mode and see if there are any errors when you boot.
