    : Download and Run DSS

    Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.
    • Close all applications and windows.
    • Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
    • When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt<- this one will be minimized.
    • Attach the main.txt and the extra.txt in your reply.
