Hello all!

Yesterday, my computer was working fine, but this morning it started acting strange. After I restarted my computer, everything was in classic view, and when I try to open Windows Security Center it gives me the error "the windows security center service can't be started."

So then I tried to do system restore... but I get this error "System restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on thsi system. a volume shadow copy service component encountered an unexpected error. check the application event log for more information."

I find it strange that this would happen all of a sudden .... it seems like a virus to me, but I'm not sure. I'm currently scanning with NOD32 and windows malware removal software, I will post back the results as soon as they are complete!

If there is any information that I need to tell you guys, just let me know. I would really appreciate your help!

I'm running Windows 7 ultimate, with all the latest updates installed.


I just finished scanning my computer with ESET NOD32 and windows malicious software removal tool... both programs came up clean!

I'm really baffled as to what is going on here... I didn't do anything particularly drastic in the last 24 hours ... help please!
