A buddy dropped off his computer for me to look at. There seems to be more problems than I know how to take care of. He said he had no internet and his Start Menu Taskbar was nowhere to be found. He also said that when he did try to go somewhere on the internet, he also got expired security notices alot. I ran malwarebytes to see if there were any viruses. Malwarebytes found "Rogue.PCSecurityGardian" and removed it.

Here is where I'm at. I removed the virus but in normal mode, I do not have any internet connection and the start menu taskbar is not there. If I boot in safemode, everything works fine and the taskbar is there.

Also, his clock is not keeping time so maybe the battery needs to be replaced. Would this cause the expired security notices?

Any help would be appreciated.

Just an update as I think I have things better under control.

My buddy has a five monitor system. Ya, I know, what does he do with that. He got into the stock market and has this crazy setup. I ended up hooking up the monitor to a different vga port and found the taskbar and then moved it to the #1 monitor.

The clock is keeping the correct time so I have not seen any Security Cert. alerts.

As for the internet, once I unchecked proxy server, I was able to get on the internet again.

I think this computer is working good again but if you have any suggestions, please let me know.
