Hi jedjeds and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

Please note: ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.


Did you try CheckDisk? You can do this by opening My Computer and right clicking on your C drive. Select properties and on the Tools tab click the Check Now button. Check both options in the next screen and click Start.
You will get a message that tells you the volume cannot be checked right now and if you want to schedule it for the next reboot. Allow this and reboot. You should see the check in progress after the windows splash screen.

regards, Elise

Pagefile is your virtual memory file. It is needed on your computer, and gets bigger when your system needs more virtual memory.

Your computer has RAM (random access memory). This is a hardware component and is used to store data your system is accessing. When this RAM is full and your system still needs additional space (that is, when you are running many applications or applications that need much memory), it will use virtual memory in addition.

Please download and run HardwareInfo.
Click the Run Scan button
Click OK when done and Exit.
It will create a logfile named HardwareInfo.txt in the location from which you run the tool.

Please post the contents of that file here.
