Hi, Im really looking forward to any advice regarding my computer. I dont know where to begin, in short, Im computer illterate and have experienced increasing difficulties for over a year now. I imagine there are many possible fixes, as it is Im considering saving my documents and files and formating, Im also considering an upgrade but will seek advice on that matter at a later time. If it is not too off topic if there are any instructions so that I can reset my machine to a previous state that would be convenient, because half of the more apparent problems occur when I let others borrow my computer. After which some serious problems have been found such as persistent pop ups and a scvhost file that takes all of the computers resources. Finally I notice when looking at the hijack log that at least half of the running processes as detailed on task manager are not listed in the top list. Whether that is meant to be or not I dont know, but I guess it is worth mentioning to be on the safe side. Thanks in advance for this very useful assistance forum.
