Inactive Malware created Win7 system processes I cannot end or delete

As you know I got my laptop used without any disks...and I don't have any remaining windows disks or otherwise from years ago when I got the desktop. (It was originally my grandfathers, I was still living at home at the time. He died without a will, the house went into probate, and most of our stuff was thrown away. The house was sold to an investor pretty quickly, and there really wasn't time to try and sell all that stuff. Step relatives got the house, kicked me to the curb) Stuff I kept was very minimal, disks were lost.

System recovery is definitely there, the last time I got there was because of the BSOD I was getting, and then I started to boot windows in safe mode, but halfway while it was loading I thought of something else I wanted to try and powered off. Big mistake. Windows would not start at all. Thats when I was able to get into recovery options and run Startup Repair for about 2 hours. After that it said it couldn't fix the problem, but windows was able to start normally.

I don't think risking that kind of situation is a good idea. But I'll check if its available through the "Windows did not start normally" due to power off while in windows instead of shutting down.

Are you sure setting the boot timer to more then 0 seconds wouldn't give me some time?

Really stupid that Msconfig doesn't let you get into recovery options, because I was reading some forum posts of other people whose F8 does not work, and that is where I learned about Msconfig.

So then, I need a boot disc after all, which means I need at least 8 gig flash drive.
In that case case Im stuck... (however, desperate times call for desperate measures...)

Whose bright idea was it to make this stuff nearly impossible to access?

I use Firefox, and thats become a deadend. I have 55, can't upgrade to 57 as it completely ruins Firefox in basically almost every way. Turns it into a ugly bugged mess of garbage. Nor do I use 56, as 56 unncessarily changed the help menu. If it ain't broken don't fix it! Firefox used to be able to customize the toolbars, to where you could put back, address bar, and search bar right into the menu bar so that you just had one toolbar for everything, and then tabs. These designers and programmers need to take an additional course on not having their heads up their ***.

Its gonna take some time. It's just too bone chilling cold to go anywhere more then a block away. Way too cold for Arizona. My only vehicle is a mobility scooter. I dont feel like wearing my entire wardrobe, and then cutting eye holes in one of my shirts just to go where I may or may not be able to get what I need anyway, but I have to keep friggin posting here or you'll close the topic.

Here is something else I need. My Desktop is okay, but the Laptop has an extremely hard time connecting to the LAM Guest wifi network at home. It always says, connected, no internet access. I have to disconnect and then reconnect to get a "charge" of wifi lasting about a minute.

I need some kind of batch program that will constantly disconnect and connect to this network, 24/7, all day, every day. The morons who designed Windows ought to know better. If there is "No Internet Access" Then why in the hell am I staying connected to the network? Any network that is giving you "limited access" and "no internet access" needs to be dropped or rebooted. PERIOD!

I don't want to stay connected to a Network that is cheating me, and not giving me internet access. That is NOT okay. It's so stupid that Windows has you blindly putting up with it. If there isn't Internet, then there isn't a connection, and you need to continue trying to establish one. Stupid. So how do I get Windows to make an effort to establish a real connection?

If there isn't a connection, then there isn't a connection. How do I get Windows to stop pretending there is one, when it should be disconnecting and reconnecting until there is actual internet access? And yes, this problem existed before the Virus.

But yeah, it is colder then a Freezer in Arizona right now, and Windy on top of it. It's too cold to travel, and too warm inside the stores to travel wearing my entire wardrobe. The cold is much worse, because I'm traveling 18 kmh in the open air.

Take your time. No rush.
As for the connectivity issue it may be a subject to a different forum.

Note that the Laptop doesn't have this problem connecting with any other network, all of them work fine every place I have taken it. Only at home does it have this problem. Every couple months the La Mesita wifi goes down for a week or two and they have to fix it. After that I can connect to it fine with the laptop, for about a week. Then it goes back to "normal" which is constantly having to connect and disconnect in order to get a "charge" of working internet access.

I was about to go to Frys today, but it was too cold and windy. Should hopefully be better in a couple of days. Safeway is only a block from where I live, but they don't have any CDs or USBs. We Arizonans suffer the intense heat, and 115 degree heat in the summer, but our winters are usually nice. 60-70 degree. Lately we've had an unusual cold front, started about a week ago.

I went to Frys and Walmart. No luck finding black cds or usb flash drives. (The only aisles I didn't check at Walmart was the stuff directly surrounding the electronics dpt. desk. It was very crowded, although I meant to check it later.) I know Target has them, but it's a lot further away, and they don't have anything else I want, they never have big sizes of clothes when I go there.

Is it possible to use my 64 gig flash drive, if I remove most of the files and add a Windows 10 ISO, or make a boot disc for the windows 7, or would I have to reformat it? If I did have to delete everything and/or reformat, is it possible to turn it back into a normal flash drive when I'm done?

Yes, you can use your flash drive. I believe that creating that rescue drive will format your drive so you have to transfer any important files you have there.
When we're done you can format it again and use it as you wish.

All my batteries are showing signs they are about to die. I could only download torrents at Safeway wifi, but can't anymore because the plug is sealed, the laptop battery only lasts 5 mins, and I'm about to have NO transportation. The most I can do now is use the computer lab to watch and upload youtube videos. Can't download from youtube anymore.

The Laptop is no longer any use to me, and I can't afford to take any risks with the USB drive.

So I've decided to abandon this cleaning process until further notice. IF or When I get back into a situation where I actually have a source of income, and am able to restore my transportation, then it may be useful to return here, but in all likelihood, because of the cost and hassle involved in getting a new laptop battery, I would probably just look into getting a new Laptop anyway.

Thanks for trying to help, but me and my computer have gone over the hill... and theres a farm to buy in the next valley.
