Hi all!

First off a very Happy Xmas to all :))

I have been working with Malewarebytes for a hacking virus that affected my computer. It even downloaded all of facebooks pictures to my picture file! My pictures have been currupted and i still am unable to open windows pictures, it crashes immediately.

My touchpad now is opening up the right click box every time and preventing me from typing or closing them.

Would any of these be currupt drivers? Does anyone know of a program that i could use to check this out please?

Really appreciate the help everyone!

Many Thanks

There is no test for file corruption that I am aware of, for any type of file other than system files (where the sfc /scannow command checks existing system files).

If there is a problem with a given driver...I suppose that Event Viewer would tend to be the best source of data about such, but I won't swear to that.

Generally...unless corruption somehow causes a problem with Windows...you won't be aware of it or when it occurs.

Corrupt data files...you could try the chkdsk /r command on such, with no guarantee of success.

You also might remember...drivers also exist for firewalls, AV programs, graphics editors, programs like iTunes, and various other functions not related to hardware devices.
