I have been watching the posts- I downloaded GMER & ran it- A few minutes later a blue screen came up & said it had to stop because it didn't want to totally ruin my 'puter. (something like that) It said if this was the first time I ran it to reboot & run again- I didn't run it again (yet?)
my network connection is corrupted. I cannot stop RPC from running in services which I NEVER started & in "services" it will NOT let me do ANYTHING to change ANYTHING on RPC...
So? When the BLUE MEAN SCREEN popped up
I DID get my hubby's puter out
& typed out the "technical number info"
The NAME of the MEANIE is awryypow.sys & I cannot find anything anywhere on this name. I found the file in "My Computer" C: drive- I dared NOT just delete it
I have GOT to get CD/DVD pic orders made from a 30 year class reunion & do NOT want to infect anyone else!!! HELP!!!
There are TOO many weird things going on with 'puter- too numerous to even keep up with!
Here is the tech info! (Not sure if this matters or not but the first line had some "underscores" on it but I was in a hurry to type out what it said in fear of my puter signing off itself!! (Sorry!) Tech Info & #'s should be CORRECT!!awryypow.sys base at
