Howdy - i'm an IT guy and this laptop was just handed to me. Windows 7 Pro on a HP Probook 4530s. The user only said the thing that happened was that she plugged in her camera to download the pictures to the laptop and also connected her iPhone to iTunes.

 

Then it went 'haywire'. So we are left with a computer that boots, is VERY slow to react to things like opening task manager. No system restore points were found. Can't run sfc as i get the 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation' error even though i'm in safe mode and running cmd as administrator.

 

i have a HijackThis log which i will post now. Any help would be awesome! thanks, ynot2k
