hello Jack Sutton

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop.

Please include the following logs in your next reply (post all logs as text, no attachments please):
  • DDS.txt
