    Problems after last week's Windows 7 update


    Hi all
    everything OK until the weekend when after what appeared to be a less than satisfactory Windows update I can not use System Restore to go back to last week (main problem signature 6.1.7600.16385). I started the process because I was not hearing sound despite all drivers etc being in place and working properly. I also can not get the wireless card to communicate with the router now (although I still have access with the wired desktop). I ran a CHKDSK /r overnight (results attached). I am naturally wondering if it is either a system corrupt or a virus (my suspicions were aroused here when a malwarebytes AV scan kept stopping after a few seconds in safe mode). Obviously there is a recommended list of workarounds for this but I would appreciate what the current line of thinking on this was? speccy profile below followed by edited extract (for space limitations) minitoolbox output as well as the appropriate attachments (NB CBS.zip too big to attach)

    many thanks!

    General Advice: If you suspect Windows Update is a factor in your problem see this from the Windows7Forums moderators.
    Windows Update Specific to Each User Windows Update Posting Instructions


    Specific Advice:

    You should disconnect your computer from the Network, or the virus could download other viruses.
    Do not download anything that has a chance of having a virus.

    (1) I know you think a virus is the problem, but try using Startup Repair from the boot menu or your Windows DVD, its more in depth then SFC.exe.
    The Microsoft article below, although applying to Vista recommends using Startup repair when System Files validation fails.
    I'm not sure if Startup Repair will work on Microsoft Office files, but in any case should reinstall Microsoft Office after backup up personal files.

    References You can use:
    Event ID 3002 — User-mode Protected Media Path File Validation https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...(v=ws.10).aspx
    Startup Repair Walkthru: Troubleshoot Startup Problems with Startup Repair Tool in Windows 7 & Vista


    (2) Run a different Anti-Virus solution that won't itself have a virus and get Microsoft System Internals tools.
    Microsoft Safety Scanner. Microsoft Safety Scanner - Free Virus Scan with the Microsoft Safety Scanner
    Windows Defender Offline https://blogs.microsoft.com/cybertru...ender-offline/
    Microsoft System Internals Tools https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb545021.aspx
    Anti-Virus Article What to do if your antivirus software stops working

    You can use System Internals Tools ProcExp.exe to help track what Apps, Processes, Images .dll are running.
    If something is suspicious then Kill the process. What happens though is the virus restarts itself. In Process Explorer you can see this because
    everytime a new process starts up it shows up in a color in the UI of the Application. So this tool is really helpful in finding what is a Virus.

    To remedy the fact that a virus restarts itself is easy you just have to uninstall it. If the uninstaller doesn't work or there isn't one you have
    to delete the files and registry entries.
    This is another reason to use ProcExp.exe. You will be able to find in depth information to help you delete registry entries.

    Hi:

    Is this the same computer as the one HERE and HERE?

    If so, it can be confusing, counter-productive, inefficient and sometimes dangerous/damaging to work on the same computer problem simultaneously in multiple venues.
    I suggest sticking with ONE place to get help for your issue.

    <just a suggestion>

    Cheers,

    A very good suggestion.

    To many cooks in the kitchen. Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing sort of thing.

    One thread on one forum on one computer problem at one time.
