Please read this entirely before we begin malware removal:


Before we start with malware assistance, I want to inform you of a few things:

1.) I am not a recognized malware removal expert. I do not have a certification from a malware removal school. Having said that, I have removed a lot of malware with PCs and have years of experience.
But just like no antivirus program is 100% effective, neither am I. My goal is to simply clean up your PC from any malware we can find, and assist you in any way possible to help you secure your PC.

2.) Sevenforums (This forum)and I will NOT be held responsible for anything that might go wrong with your pc.

3.) You agree to follow all directions given, until I advise that your pc is clean and you are free of threats. You will not abandon the thread.


The most important rule of all:

4.) YOU WILL NOT INSTALL/change/modify OR ADD ANYTHING TO YOUR SYSTEM UNTIL MALWARE REMOVAL IS COMPLETE. No files or programs or anything of the sort.

Do you agree to these terms?

If yes, reply with a Yes. If not, please state so and I will flag an official malware remover, or I will recommend another place for malware removal assistance.
Can I put a hold on that offer? I'd like to try some less intensive stuff before we get into that.

Some system specs might be handy too
System Info - See Your System Specs
I did try thoroughly cleaning my drive before installing one of the programs.

As far as the media question I'm afraid you'll have to explain further.
-I've had youtube open so that's flash player. If that's what you mean.

And I'll get right onto the system specs
-System specs are now in
No sorry mate I should have been a little more explicit I meant the Windows OS media - retail OEM or what because if you have a corrupted disk or whatever (very doubtful but possible) then you could try this
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 just use the ISO for what you have it works well.
I have a retail hard copy of Windows 7 home premium. (You know, the 32bit and 64bit disks that you can install windows from) Hopefully that is what you're looking for this time.

Hum Andrew a bit OT but now I am beginning to think what we are doing here now and if we are going to go down the track of denying responsibility for anything we suggest then I am going to reconsider my participation in anything that recommends any fix involving using on call software. Some may consider that a good thing perhaps and I admit to not being an expert in anything at all but only use such software that I suggest and that I would use myself.

As far as I know using those malware scans (or the use of free software ie Partition Wizard) the person who is being recommended them is the one who is liable for any use of that software because as far as I have ever seen it states "I accept the agreement" or words to that effect at the installing of the software. .
I think the same goes for the tutorials as they are written / devised by individuals whom I consider to be perfectly competent to write them that includes yourself re the CCleaner tutorial.
If we as individuals or any member cannot trust what is suggested then they have to he choice to not to run them

Personally I think your comments are a little draconian because I have yet to have anyone complain to me personally that what I personally or anyone else have suggested has wrecked the machine or OS.
I stand to be corrected and I apologise if I have read this the wrong way.

Agree...we don't require additional statements on the limitation of liability.....its already covered here and agreed to as soon as an OP visits this site.

if we all had our own version, we'd never get anything done.

So after all of this registry scanning, and every scan coming up clean, it's most likely a broken OS and I should try re-installing Windows.
^That is the conclusion that I've reached.
Agree/disagree?

If you have the data backed up mate then yes use this
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
Just make sure you pick the original version as trying a higher one will end in grief.

Okay then. I've done a couple clean installs already so this should go without a hitch. I'll do the the re-install in the morning and get back to the thread with an update on whether it is fixed or not.
