See above first!

Did you change your 'default' location to open executable files with or to "libraries"? If you did, then please see this tutorial (scroll down to 'default') Windows 7 - Tutorial Index

Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.
  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.(Go off line to run)[/*]
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".[/*]
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.[/*]
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.[/*]
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.[/*]
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.[/*]
Good morning my Yoda...ok, will uninstall all of the above, but can I reinstall the bittorrent after all this? will send the log/txt

Did as instructed. Computer froze after the JRT scan, so had to do a hard power off and on.

here is the file for your opinion. Thank you *bowing as usual*

not that I am aware of...in fact I don't even really use the libraries folder, but seeing as we're talking malware, it may have changed...which one of the defaults should I be reading? (that's me ready to follow instructions to the letter).

This may be best because of all the 'registry cleaning/optimizing' programs you've used.
Default File Type Associations - Restore

Please update Malwarebytes', run a full scan, then post the .txt log.

Ok, noted...downloaded the zip file default notifications, not really sure which are applicable lol...it only happened with TFC when the scan and cleaning was completed, and given all of my 3 stooges jokes with this laptop, I'm not keen on default type associations (which to use) without the master's guidance..

Any idea why the dllhost.exe suddenly starts hogging memory? I've isolated that (as far as I can diagnose) as the reason for crashing/programs not responding.

Thanks for ALL of your help so far

Process explorer can probably help you see why dllhost.exe is using so much memory
Process Explorer

See this and let me know what it's related to. Is dllhost.exe safe? How to remove a dllhost error?

Hi Jacee, good morning...tried not to bother you over the weekend but I spent majority of it running malware and antivirus scans...clean as a whistle according to mbam, msessentials etc. I didn't bother to upload those logs because well, nothing to report.

I think my sole issue at this point is why I have to keep enabling administrative rights at startup and the unexplained dllhost.exe (sometimes dllhost.exe*32)

Trying to figure out the process explorer...not really sure how to interpret it, but that dllhost.exe seems to be the major issue.
