MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

i have a question.

1. if infected on this drive , can it ever affect OSes on other drives

2. is it just limiting the functions and causing inconvenience of is it key logging and/or some other thing that can look at / access private data. ?

I'm sure there's something there Mike, He said he had a fake antivirus here,

windows update fails

Also the MBAM report here windows update fails lists a few also.

I would have to agree with Tews on this one, imaging would have saved alot of time. And a wipe and clean install after retrieving your important data would be the way to go.

    2. Attach.txt <---this will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your Next reply.
