Windows 7: NOD32 finds threat in file I cannot find - Appdata/Local

Hi there

No, I haven't installed SP1 and as mentioned before, I cannot update my Win7 OS.

With regards to Zoostorm, that is the manufactorer, but the PC is about 2 years old now and I don't know what else it is! I couldn't spot anything in Speccy that would tell me. If you could be so kind as to point me in the right direction I will update this in my CP.

kit,
Usually, SIW is better at supplying info, although I prefer the Speccy interface.

We must find out why you can not update your windows.
That's top priority.

Carry out following please:
Please download WVCheck from Artellos.com.
  • Double click WVCheck.exe. (If you downloaded the zipped version you will need to extract it.)
  • As indicated by the prompt, This program can take a while depending on your hard drive space.
  • Once the program is done, copy the contents of the notepad file as a reply.


=============
thanks,

Hi there

My mate who installed this OS says I have to turn off updates because it might "break" the copy he put on for me.

Does this help?

kit,
this is a little overkill, but you will certainly have all of the info you need.
Put's a file called KitsSystem.txt on your desktop.

we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
How to Tell

(for those unaware of Zoostorm as manufacturers - they make quite a few machines for the online and store-based catalogue companies such as Littlewoods.)

Hi guys

Am going to run the report thingy in post 22, but things seems to be going from bad to worse with my internet.

When I did the WDO thing, did you find anything that could be causing this issue?

The problem is my homeplugs run my NAS drive, which I am using all the time to run a business, so I can't just keep them switched off. One thing I have done is bought some gigabit homeplugs, as I am now using a gigabit router and a gigabit network switch for the NAS / Internet downstairs. Not sure if it will help, but am going to see.

Will post results as soon as I have them plugged in :-)
