Hi,

Can you correlate this message to any recent software installation or download, or a change to your system that you made?

Can you tell us more about what anti-malware/virus software you have running on your PC?

Regards,
Golden

The error can be due to a number of things, but first of all, download this;

Malwarebytes

and run a full scan with it. If it finds anything post the log here.

You have malware on your machine based on the log. Running a full scan would be a good decision.

Yes, your machine is infected. You can remove the malware with that free version of Malwarebytes, but it wont repair any damage the malware did.

You only ran a "Quick Scan", run a full scan to find all malware.

It is sometimes possible to fix some of the damage, but it takes a long time to find and troubleshoot all the problems and is not guaranteed to work either.

The only really sensible option is a clean install of windows.

The full scan will tell you what files and registry entries are affected, and if you tell it to, it will remove the malware, but this may render your system inoperable.

Unfortunately, there are now so many types and variations of these things that only a malware specialist could even begin to tell you what they affect and how.

These things can not normally damage your hardware, they just make the operating system and software unusable, many try to access information, and occasionally allow botnets and other stuff to take over your PC.
