I'm running an Envy 14 laptop with Windows 7.


My boyfriend downloaded a couple of sketchy games on it recently and it started acting out. It froze yesterday - one of those mid-song nasty freezes with the sound drilling in your head - and it's something it's never done before. I tried to look into it more today, tired to run System Restore a couple of times, it froze on "System Restore initializing..." so both times after waiting for 15min, I force-shut down. I ran Mbam in safe mode (it took me a while to get the system to start in Safe mode, it just refuses to properly start or shut down) and it only found the few files that were part of his games that supposedly were fine. But I'm not sure if that's the case, so I deleted them, but it still feels iffy. It's not running properly and I wanna make sure there's nothing nasty lurking in my system. 


Help, anyone?
