Everything's working well, system file check, CHKDSK, memory checks... until I got to the clean boot and I'm stalled here. I did everything recommended for a clean boot on the microsoft page but when I click "apply" after disabling all services after hiding all ms services, the little wheel just goes round and round... I'm gonna go for a long walk and see if it resolves itself. I've read that windows seven uses a lot of resources and needs more memory for this kind of thing so maybe it's slowly working its way through. I may have to restart, and, if it's still running, click "force shutdown" if it doesn't resolve and then after the restart maybe stop one service at a time til they're all done. Does that make sense?

Problem didn't resolve. Had to shut down but it won't log off. Maybe because I ran msconfig as admin, it won't log me off because I'm already logged off.... the last time I had to do a hard shut down and start in safe mode, run a chkdsk with fix and then, in again. Should I try to run msconfig without admin privileges (I'm the only one on the computer anyway) and shut off one service at a time to get a clean boot?

Are you sure you hid All MS Services? If so then it sounds like more serious corruption that is hanging the PC since nothing should be left to disable that is critical at all - except your AV which is why it's excepted.

Try a few reboots.

If this fails, try SFC after full Malwarebytes scan.

I managed to achieve it in safe mode. But then I realized I didn't know what you meant by culling the logs. !!

Step 15:
Quote:
15. Study the Event Viewer>Custom>Admin view for repeat errors to google text and ID# to find out how others have resolved them. Event Viewer - Open and Use in Windows 7

For example for the repeat errors highlighted below, googling the text will auto-complete showing others have searched for it, then take you to discussion threads which point to a MS Fixit for the problem.

Thanks, Greg! That's very helpful. One of the events that's a constant pain and source of critical error is this one:

And I googled it and found that it has to do with the computer looking for a wireless network that I never set up since I'm just wired! No wonder! The problem is that, on the page I googled, they're way over my head.

So I did go to the Network Sharing Services, clicked on Manage Wireless Networks and was just about to click "remove network" when I got worried I wouldn't be able to access the internet. It's probably worrying over nothing since it seems it's only for he wireless I don't use. But I thought I'd check and I'll promise not to do it again. I'm sure you have better things to do that walk people through things like this.

Anyway, that's one of the most continuous errors.

You should be OK to remove that.

I am using wired and have nothing showing in "manage wireless connections".

Alternatively, you could right click > properties > uncheck the "Connect automatically when this network is in range".

I am too lazy to read the entire thread, but if you are having multiple problems still, you might be best trying a Repair Installl. Not sure if Greg already suggested that.

Was waiting to see what infection and SFC scans find.

Note that Repair Install (link in tutorial) cannot be run from Safe Mode.
