I had a IE antiVirus problem and took some help from this forum to remove Rogue Malware using Malware Byte's Malware anti-malware..and then I have started having problems..

I restart the computer, log in and wait till McAfee loads and before even it gets to the point it shuts off! Right now, I am in Safe Mode with networking and was enable to log in and get to this website. I did check memory, defragg and all looks OK...I had run McAfee couple of times all ready and has no potential threats any more..

second problem, I backed up before computer started shutting off, but did not realize that I have not purged the computer off of malware and now my Western Digital hardware drive has that too! What are my options? I do not have any other back up storage any where else! What if I loose everything? How do I de-bug External drive? There is a long message with the "Blue window" ON, scary though, says to check BIOS, Driver updates and then it gives me Tech info:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0x0000005, 0xF4273DF2, 0xF8941B00, 0xF89417FC)
*** mrxsmb.sys - address F4273Df2 base at F422300, dates stamp 445b1dd6

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.....

Hence I am contacting you all those who know such kind of problems..Can you help ASAP?

Looking forward to:

Hi, some background reading:



I think I'd start with updating/removing the NIC driver...or disabling the NIC in the BIOS, if you can get into the BIOS.

Edited to add: If you think you have a malware problem, that needs to be taken care of first.

Edit: Apologies for the previously non-functioning links, I don't seem to be able to do anything other than insert them directly today :thumbsup:.

I'd first suggest disconnecting your external drive from your computer. If it's infected, it's just the files on it (there's no registry on the external drive) - and they can be scanned/removed later on - or scanned on another, non-infected computer that has an updated antivirus program with current definitions.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

(23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
