As you can tell from my display name I really do not have a clue when it comes to computers. I am willing to look for answers, and a little patience goes a long way. On this past Sunday our computer went haywire with this "system message - write fault error" . It appeared about 30 times on the screen and another prgram that I was unaware of started on my screen showing that we had all kinds of system errors. I tried everything including shutting down the computer. When I rebooted the home page had no icons except for "My Computer", and this message kept coming back. Fortunately using our other laptop I found a site by the name of fixpcyourself.com . They led me to the bleepingcomputer site to download rkill and then run Malware Bytes Anti Malware. WAY TO GO!!! I was able to do a system restore back to about 5 days previous. I then found that this same problem caused all of my files to become hidden and read only. Again through my research I was led back to bleepingcomputer to use the unhide prgram. WAY TO GO AGAIN!!! Believe it or not I was first considering doing each file manually. THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER!!!!
I am trying to find out where to ask a question about whether or not to remove an iExplore.exe file I downloaded from bleepingcomputer to my desktop. If anyone can direct me it would be greatly appreciated.
