  1. all my files in local D suddenly are missing, but the properties state that free space is 17.8 GB and Total size is 38.2GB. I can open files in local D a week ago, might be a virus or something, already tired different antiviruses still wont seem to fix my problem

    Disable the scriptrng tool. Uninstall the DDS and logs you have now. Download and run scan again with the scripting disabled.

    You told me you were using AutoCad. You can try to disable that and/or do the following:

    Disabling Script
    • Open Internet Options- either through Tools in IE or through the Control Panel..
    • Click the Security tab> within the Internet zone, click Custom Level.
    • Change the following settings:
      [o]"Active Scripting" to Disable,
      [o]"Allow paste operations via script" to Prompt
      [o]"Scripting of Java applets" to Prompt> then click OK.
    • Click on Yes when prompted to make these security setting changes.
