Windows 7: Device manager blank?

Dear gazurtoids,
Under "Advanced" try this tack:

On the Advanced window select user 'SYSTEM' and then

. On the Advanced window check "Reset permissions on all child objects..." (lowest checkbox)
. Click "OK"
. On the warning window click "Yes"
. Close REGEDT32 (don't forget ok or apply)


If this too does not set things right, we will have to think of "Malware".

Kindly excuse me, i have a call from the Hospital to attend. Will follow up on the 'morrow! I am like a Terrier and so should be you

Best wishes,
sree ( On night duty)

Dear gazurtoids,
Now we have to check for Malware as i suggested in a previous post!
1) Download SAS Portable scanner and just run(no need to update) : SUPERAntiSpyware.com - SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner
Fix any Malware.
2) Then, download MBAM(select the free version,update and run) : Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer
If Malware found, it will prompt you as to how to fix it/them.

After MBAM, let us run a On-line Virus Scanner (select the 32 OR 64-bit) : HouseCall - Free Online Virus Scan - Trend Micro USA

Kindly post back the result!

best wishes,
sree

Dear gaz,
What AV have you installed (originally) on the system?Update and run.

Some Trojans and Virii are very hard to remove, so kindly re-run MBAM and the free version of SuperAntiSpyware which you can download from (install,update and kindly run): SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

If the Trojans are still lurking, remove them. Re-run! If still present, we will have to think of downloading an .iso image of your version of Win.7 and install (called-"biting the bullet"). Let us follow the trail!

Best wishes,
sree

Can you also post the logs of what viruses were found? Malwarebytes is nice about keeping logs, so just compress (zip) the logs up and upload them for us to take a look at. It would be good to know the severity of your virus/malware infection.

Bluetooth device not in device manager, no hardware switch, Acer netbk
Model is Acer Aspire One D270. Internal bluetooth doesn't work. Nothing in device manager. Fn+F3 is meant to control it, but doesn't. May be because I've messed with some programs. Trying to re-install to factory settings. Any suggestions at all? thanks D:
