Hello, I'd like to start by saying I ave searched everywhere for a solution to this problem and I've had no luck. I am also quite inexperienced with most of the tools you may ask me to use, such as hijackthis. I've only had a few viruses on this computer during its lifetime and I've always been able to clean them off with malwarebytes or other programs and I even borrow friends' computers and fix them whenever they need. Anyway, I'll get to my problem. My graphics driver sometimes shakes loose inside of my computer, that's no problem except sometimes I have to tighten it back in. Sometimes I will turn on my pc and the screen wont load, telling me it is loose, forcing me to turn off the computer by holding the power button. Well a few days ago I did this, and I pressed "start my computer normally" when the screen appeared, but for some reason, a CHKDSK ran. I didn't have time to stop it and I did not want to turn off my pc while it ran. However, it started saying all kinds of my files were corrupt and it was deleting them and replacing some with defaults. I was like "hmm, ok, it's never done this before, maybe this is a good thing." However, when my desktop came up, the problem it caused was very apparent. There is so much to explain, I will get as much on here as I can. Say I try to open any program, a window pops up that says "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022) Click ok to terminate the application." This is a big deal because I can not use most of my programs. Luckily, through experimentation, I found out I can open SOME programs by going to "program files" and finding the file for the program and click it and press "open as administrator." SOME programs will work (such as World of warcraft.) When I try to run as administrator with programs on the desktop I get the message "Edata security is not properly intalled! Please reinstall the software." the "The instruction at 0x00000000 referenced memory at 0x00000000 the memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate the program." I went into safe mode and oddly enough, all programs work. I ran a full scan of Malwarebytes but it did not find anything. I tried a system restore of 1 week and that didn't work either. I tried Any information I can have that can resolve this issue WITHOUT wiping my hard drive would be very appreciated. I will check this often if you need more information. Honestly, I have little hope.
