Replies in layman's language please - complete technophone here :-)
Recently, whenever I went online I always for a message saying AdAware had detected a malcious operation but that it would be removed at the end of its scan. Last night I ran AdAware and AVG scans which deleted a lot of infected files and the machine worked fine.
I also always get two error messages (well, over the past few weeks anyway) saying Error leading C:\windows\nutmutl.dll The Specified Module Could not be Found and the same for C:\windows\efuxazez.dll. How on earth is the layman supposed to know what this means????
The above might be conincidence but today I got a couple of brief error messages that disappeared before I could write then down, one saying there was little disk space, the other saying it couldn't find the hard drive. I went to My Docs on the hard drive to delete some stuff, only to find the entire contents gone except the Programs folder. Clicking this, however, produces an error message saying the folder "refers to a location that it not available."
I now get every few seconds a message saying "Critical Error - "Damaged Hard Drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk." As I type I have had another message saying I have low disk space (not true now by the way!) and another saying "Windows No Disk": Exception Processing Message 0x0000013 Parameters 0x759A023C 0X84C3CAA4 0X759A023C 0x759A023C.
I should point out I do not have any Windows disks - I got this machine second hand from an office, so I really am panicking here. The loss of this PC wouldbe a disaster. PLEASE HELP!!!!! Many thanks
PS! I have just re-booted and the Critical Error Message has just been replaced with another saying: "Windows can't find hard dick space. Hard Drive Error." Eek.....
