At this point scans come up clean so I have no reason to believe there is any residual infection left on my computer, but my computer hangs/crashes no matter what I do. I tried swapping out the ram in my computer and that seemed to help for a time, but now it's worse than ever. It seems as if my computer crashes based on time - not workload. For about 15 minutes after rebooting my computer I can do pretty much anything and it works quick as usual. Then it hangs by the simplest command such as minimizing a window. If I leave my computer on and do nothing for hours, it is usually frozen by the time I get back.
I would do a system restore, but the restore points got deleted.
PCPitstop full tests show no major errors. My drivers are up to date. My hard drive is new. I've tried different ram configurations (but have entirely new ram on order).
So far I have had to manually shut down my computer (by holding the power button on the front) about 75 times. Each reboot I try to fix something else but nothing is helping. Also, I can't access safe mode.
Thank you for any help.
An update - I tried to use system restore to restore back a few days, tho still after I got the virus (since past restore points have been deleted, and It seems to be stuck.
The bar that indicated progress has not had any progress for about an hour now. I'll wait a couple more hours, but how long should it take? What happens if it is stuck?
