Windows 7: Windows error messages on start up

12 Apr 2015   #11

Windows 7 64 bit
 
 

Okay I got it. I opened my C drive and clicked on windows, then clicked system 32, then clicked on tasks, and deleted four programs I did not recognize which appeared to have been installed around the time my problem began. They were Genius Box, Tidy Network Update, Validate Installation, Check Updates.

Do you recognize any of these? B.

The first one is adware. You can study Google results to try to figure out where they came from, possibly sneakware in a freeware program you installed? It may have been neutralized by your protection and was flailing at Startup.

What I'd do next is download, install declining trial, run a full scan with both Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware.

Next check your browsers' Add-On's and Extensions to disable any but Flash, a Reader helper, and Google as sole search - any odd Search is a strong hint of malware bundle. SAS will alert you if it's already uninstalled any.

Go through Programs and Features list with a fine tooth comb. Google any you don't recognize.

Once clean, run SFC /SCANNOW Command to check for damaged system files.
