Hi, blunder :thumbsup:

Welcome to BC.

Please print these instructions for reference, as you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download FixWareout from Here.
  • Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
  • The fix will begin; follow the prompts.
  • If your firewall gives an alert, (because this tool will download an additional files from the internet), please don't let your firewall block it, but allow it instead.
  • You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.
  • Once the desktop loads a text file will open (report.txt).
    Please post the C:\fixwareout\report.txt ), along with a new HijackThis log into this topic.
