  1. Hey,
    I woke up on May 10th 2013 & when it started up my laptop I saw this. image.jpg
    I was a bit scared, but I decided to run the following programs:
    Mbam (AV)
    DSKCHK
    Disk cleanup
    Disk defragmenter
    Scan disk (SCR-scanow)
    AVG tuneup
    AVG (AV)
    MSE (AV)
    Restore point.
    I do not know what happened, but I have posted on several other forums, but no answer.
    Thanks,
    Danawesome.

    So it was malware that caused this? Thanks for the update:)
