my workstation has been redirected. And it is like remote is trying to takeover. I must have left something open.

Hi laps12 and Welcome !

 

Could you provide additional information. What are the redirects? What do you mean by "remote is taking over". Have you tried any scans?

hi, sikntired

thanks for the reply.

 

I have a windows7 home prem. workgroup for serveral years.

which i believe doesn't have group client.

 

On login it started taking much longer and i noticed a kind of skip in

watching the screen.

 

In event log it showed logging recovery.

 

workstation changed- buffering, wapper and engiine.

 

I really don't know if that means anything because i'm

not computer wise.

 

Yet it feels like something is trying to takeover.

 

Being denied into files.

 

now have this group policy client

 

i'm not should, but something has changed.

Hi,

 

Have you done any scans for Malware? Have you recently made any changes or installed programs prior to changes?

The first thing I would try is a System Restore to a point prior to when you noticed these changes. System Restore will suggest a Restore Point but you

 

will have options to Select Another Restore Point.

 

In case you need it: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/features/system-restore

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards................

Hi again,

 

Thanks for the restore point, but I wasn't able to go back far enough.  I do believe somehow I picked up (a group Client) issue.

 

For instance! When I shutdown my computer I get an event 1074. EXPLORER.EXE is shutting-off my computer in my behalf. (that just started a few days ago.)     

 

It is like, I'm in a battle for my computer.
