  1. Hey, went on my PC couple of days ago and tried to end some apps via ctrl+alt+delete but as soon as I opened it it would freeze for a split second then close on me.

    The exact same thing happens with regedit.

    They both work in safe mode.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    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:

    I would rather reformat my PC than go through all that freeware downloading and steps.

    That log is fresh as it gets (the one you deleted)

    I was in safe mode and ran various anti-virus's (updated-yes)

    Yes I know I have begin2 and yes I am in seek of an easier alternative to download 50,000 antivirus tools and running them in sequence.

    If you don`t want to follow the instructions, that`s fine.

    A reformat would certainly get rid of the nasties.

    At the end of the day, it`s upto you.

    Regards Howard :)
