Hi
if the problems not too bad checkdisk might pick up the error, tried that? this navigation is for xp, 7 should be pretty close
my computer/local drive c:/
right click local disk c:
properties/tools/error checking/check now
check both checkboxes, hit start and then itll ask for a restart
if checkdisk doesent get it then I would probably wipe it.
sounds like a virus from a while back got in there and caused a problem
run a "boot time scan" of your antivirus also
good luck..

Tip

Anti-Virus Program detects virus but after re-boot...still there!


Ever wonder why it is that when your Anti-Virus Program detects a virus and apparently seems to contain or delete it, the virus is there all over again after a re-boot and the Anti-Virus Program once again contains it or deletes it? Seems like a never ending battle right?

Well here's the reason and the solution:

1) Reason: Bill Gates

A smart and nice man no doubt about it but he overlooked one thing about Windows: ANY Anti-Virus Program out there, by default, is NOT permitted to even knock on the door of the System Restore File. So what happens when your Anti-Virus Program halts, contains, or removes a virus? The virus is there ALL over again in a vicious cycle it seems. Why? Because the Virus IS allowed to knock on the door. In fact, a virus can even step foot so far inside the system restore department that it actually BACKS ITSELF UP...in the system restore file. THAT's how the never ending battle occurs!

2) Solution: Ahhh...got your attention now don't I? Hmmm well if you really want to know how to put the brakes on this vicious cycle, first I'm going to need you to create a PayPal account and then...only kidding here is the solution:

Answer: Once your Anti-Virus has detected a virus..don't waste ANY more precious time trying one thing or another. You MUST at that point, TURN OFF YOUR SYSTEM RESTORE FOR ALL PARTITIONED DRIVES! Once the system restore is OFF, THEN and ONLY then would it make the most sense to perform a FULL-SYSTEM scan. You see, full system scan to an Anti-Virus Program does NOT include the restore file, while a virus DOES! So, with the restore off...now we're fighting on equal terms and your Anti-Virus will prevail!! Just remember to turn the restore back on once you have confirmed you have a clean system.

Yep! that's the answer that would save you HOW much $ ? (from having to call Geek-Squad or similar outfit)

Here's the procedure for turning off the restore and there is more than one way to get to the ocean so to speak but here is the shortest route I believe:

1) Point mouse at <start>
2) Right-Click mouse on <my computer>
3) Left-Click mouse on < Properties>
4) The very top left tab click mouse on <system restore>
5) Put a check mark in the box that says <turn off system restore>

You're done! Now perform that full system scan now and after the scan is complete, ....point that mouse over that box again but this time...take the check mark OUT of the box and this will allow restore to function once again. Same holds true for desktops as well as laptops running virtually any version of Microsoft Windows.

Troubleshooter on my comtuter will not function


Before you do a complete reinstall consider doing the steps listed below. You might have some viruses and malware messing with you.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

On my desk top computer, I received a ThinkPoint (fake) Anti-Virus. I did CTRL, ALT, DEL. Task window opened and I deleted hotfix.exe. I also ran malwarebytes anti-malware. problem seemed to be fixed....


Run Malwarebytes again but before you do turn off system restore. There is probably a reboot hacktool in the restore volume. Windows will not allow Anti-virus programs to scan there by default so the only way to kill the hacktool is to turn of restore. The hacktool reinstalls the virus as soon as you reboot. So turn it off, run malwarebytes and another program called Cureit! http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/?lng=en save to desktop (it's free too) when you run the program it doesn't install it runs a quick scan first then offers you a full scan after the quick scan. Also a very good program. Run them both. After you're done turn system restore back on and create a new restore point. Good luck
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a good rating .It will help me
as well. Thank you.

Go to add/remove programs, uninstall, restart your computer. Now install your antivirus. See if that works if not contact your antivirus vendor, or techsupport for your antivirus.
