  1. i was able to get the computer up and running again by using "chkdsk /r". after it restarted i ran a "spysweeper" scan and it showed nothing but after i shut it down last night and i restarted this morning it was ridiculously slow. did chkdsk again and it runs ok, although when running firefox tabs just open up by themselves. is there some way i can see what chkdsk is correcting? some sort of log that i can post?

    Click on "Application"
    In the "Source" column, look for the "Winlogon" item.
    Double-click it and you should see the results of your Chkdsk.

    But to manually create a log file of a Check Disk scan
    Type in the following:
    CHKDSK C: /F > C:\CHKDISKLOG.TXT (note: substitute C for your drive letter)

    Hit your Enter key.

    Click YES on the popup to reboot.

    After CHKDSK has run type this in Start | Run...


    Notepad will open to allow you to view the results of Check Disk scan


    Note: Spy Sweeper, is usually very high on system resource, I don't use it
    I prefer free Malwarebytes:
