What's the problem?

By Mamona

  1. I can't acess system restore, can't acess user accounts, IE starting to mess up,
    even when I change the internet options, it visually changes (checkmarked box) but it makes literally no difference to the internet itself. It wasn't always like this, help and suggestions please. Is this a virus?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    If you suspect a virus, go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Well, done all the steps, cleaned out quite a bit, guess it was my fault for not scanning. XP Anyways, here's what left of my log after deleting the unwantends.

    Are you sure that`s a full HJT log? It seems awfully short of entries, especially in the 023 category.

    The log is clean BTW.

    Regards Howard :)

    I fixed a lot of them, there were many more. :p Didn't help much though. ;-;
    I'm really thinking of buying a new computer.

    Have you tried doing a Windows repair as per this thread HERE?

    It may help.

    Regards Howard :)

    Heh, can't do that. :p
    My Windows CD broke, even though when I tried to use it to format, it didn't work. >,<

    Oh dear, that`s not good.

    Maybe you should open a new thread for your problems in our Windows OS forum.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    Regards Howard :)
