I just came off of a big problem booting, where I had to repair install windows. Afterwards, it wouldn't let me activate windows because of a malware issue. I ran Malwarebytes to clean it up, and afterwards it seemed like smoothe sailing. However, I think I still have no fixed the source problem, and possibly contracted a new malware or virus in the mean time.
Firstly, I've had a slow start since the repair install, once Windows logs in, it takes a while to get fully going. I initially chocked that up to the repai install and the os being out of date, but I guess that's a symptom.
After a few restarts Explorer crashed a few times, as well as on a few shut downs explorer.exe would hang, along with a "HiddenFax" process hang as well, but these do not happen every time. DrWatsons Debugger will also crash too.
Occasionally it seems things will load out of order too. I had avast! start up and was trying to get it to update before the log-on sound played.
The big tip off is that I keep getting pop ups for Babylon 9 software in IE, which I know dumb pop ups are a big deal, having dealth with virtumonde at least 3 times.
Basically, aside from those symptoms, I'm just getting a slow experience and I don't know what the proper disinfection routine is this season. All help is appreciated dearly!
