Hi. I'm Lou. I've been lurking around this site for a year or so and decided it's about time to say thanks to the folks that post and respond here. I was able to fix 2, yep 2, crashed (because of stupidity) laptops from someone posting and someone else answering what was needed for me to do this.
I just crashed another. Yep. As soon as I clicked reboot I knew. I was in the process of ridding a coupla trojans and accidentally loaded a module from TDSSKILLER that required that reboot. Couldn't stop the sucker from continuing. I would've been able to rid the laptop of everything had that not happened.

Gotta go. Need to access "administrator" but can't right now. DOH!

Thanks, but I think I got real lucky. I decided to see what Microsofts "Mr. Fixit" would do and just gave it a whirl. Now who'd a thunk it would actually find anything let alone fix it? It found that admin was blocked and turned it back on. :thumbup2:
Ran Rkill, then Malewarebytes Pro and I think we have a winner. Found a trojan and now it's gone.

Rkill also has been detecting another bug of sorts. I've searched everywhere and no one appears to think it's a problem outside of Rkill. I'll know eventually.

Thanks to everyone here. This site has saved me a lot of grief (and casholla). I even baffled my Brother with how to fix bugs and he's an I.T. guy. Cool beans.
