We can probably get an idea from VEW. Download VEW by Vino Rosso http://images.malwareremoval.com/vino/VEW.exe
and save it to your desktop

Double click it to start it Note: If running Windows Vista or Windows 7 you will need to right click the file and select Run as administrator and click Continue or Allow at the User Account Control Prompt.

Click the check boxes next to Application and System located under Select log to query on the upper left

Under Select type to list on the right click the boxes next to Error and Warning Note: If running Windows Vista or Windows 7 also click the box next to Critical (not XP).

Under Number or date of events select Number of events and type 20 in the box next to 1 to 20 and click Run

Once it finishes it will display a log file in notepad
Please copy and paste its entire contents into your next reply

Did notepad pop up empty?
Did you right click to run as Administrator? After filling VEW out, did you click on the run button?

This is an 'event viewer', developed by one of our anti-malware team. It is not malicious and does not change or add anything to your computer. It only reports what it finds.

WOT don't know wot it's talk'n about

Don't want to butt in, but John, do you have Everything installed (if not, it's a great search, and will find what windows search will not)? If so, search for VEW.txt. Perhaps it isn't being created in C:\ like it should?

Hum I am of course an idiot I know but I didn't know Everything even existed.

I have installed it and tried to run VEW - same result however the Everything comes up with stuff from last November to date and it's on my old drive and currently my C: is the new SSD so it seems that the report is listing just about everything on the old drive.

Am really quite confused now as to where I am - perhaps disconnecting the old drive E: might make a difference?

Disconnected E: - C: (SSD) now the only drive hooked up - still the same result.

Process click on the link
It downloads
I click run on the downloaded link
The VEW screen opens
I fill it in as per instructions
Hit run (no admin requests)
Blank result!

Just to confirm. Download VEW to desktop. Right click VEW and choose Run as administrator. Click suggested boxes, and click on run. It may not be the issue, but worth a try. A Guy

P.S. Everything was just to see if you could find the VEW.txt somewhere. But it IS a great program.
