Hi

 

My laptop has suddenly developed this issue and I'm pretty sure I have picked up something dirty somehow from the net. Please can some one help me with this, I did read a similar post here but wasn't sure if the same steps would be valid for my case as they were little old.

 

At the moment I'm on safe mode with networking and have my McAfee full scan running although it does show me that the my computer is at risk. This full scan has not detected anything.

 

I have also tried the following in the safe mode,

System File Checker didn't show anything and I ran a Malicious full scan that didn't pick up anything either. Additionally I also tried fixing the registry which didn't help as well.

 

 

Would really appreciate any other help...

 

Thanks

If you can load Disk Management, check to make sure that there isn't a small hidden partition.  I have had cases where a rootkit virus will create its own 5-10 meg partition and hide there, thus bypassing the typical anti-virus scan.  Keep in mind though that there are also legitimate small partitions provided by the PC manufacturer for diagnostics, drivers, etc.  You don't want to get rid of those.

 

Hopefully, someone with more knowledge and experience than I will help you out with this issue.
