Two days ago My Computer started acting slow all of a sudden my OS became unresponsive and kept freezing, I found that my McAfee "Internet Security" had turned it's self Off, When trying to Turn it back On it just automaticly Turns Off again within seconds. My Computer runs fine in Safe mode so i have tried System Restores back to the latest date possible, Performed a CCleaner, Defraggler and Eset Online Virus Scan and Tried an Rkill that i downloaded last year, The problem still persists though. I'm Stumped so any help/advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Launch it.Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system

Click on "Scan".Please post the LOG report(log file should be in your C drive)

Please download GMER from here(doesnot work on 64 bit OS)


Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.

GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic Full Scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.



Launch it, allow it to download latest Avast! virus definitions
Click the "Scan" button to start scan.After scan finishes,click on Save log

Post the log results here

Thank you for your Reply, i'm not sure how to post the Logs here without Copying and Pasting but each scanner said they didn't find or fix anything which is probably a bad sign as the problem is persisting.
