I had moved the TEMP folder to C:\ , don't remember why. I just emptied it again, and it's down to about 30 KB.

I don't know how to work all of Glasswire. But it hasn't blocked anything.

you getting any probs

When connecting to the pastebin links in post #6? No, I'm not seeing an insecure connection. I can read the text OK. My Firefox does report that it blocked one tracking cookie and a fingerprinter though.



Nor do I see more than just the one explorer.exe in my W7's Task Manager. Maybe unconnected, but there's one oddity in RoWin7's screenshot of the processes, the csrss.exe process has no user name showing. Mine shows SYSTEM as the user name.

Try putting them in a .zip file an attach them to a post.

Hi

You should NEVER move the temp file away from C:

All programs/features and updates use it as a "holding" file and refer back to it to complete its operation.

As Samuria said your system is a mess.

Before we try and attempt 3rd party repairs, ie Me Bree Samaria
Please run these MS repair tools in this order
Chkdsk /r
sfc /scannow
Kb947821

REBOOT

Once completed rerun FRST
ZIP an post it please

I have 7Zip. I'm not sure how to zip a file, I've tried "Add" on the main UI, but it just shows me the file's contents.

Hi Rowin7

just right click on the folder = select send to >>> compressed (zipped) folder and attach to your reply

note
might be usefull to Uninstall Glasswire for the time being MS built in is pretty good anyway

Hi Rowin7,

Once you have run the 3 system check tools, please open a thread at BleepingComputers - malware sub-forum.

There are a few items that i am suspicious off,
