What happens when you try to do a fresh install from your DVD drive?

 

Is the installation disc a legal Microsoft copy?

 

Why are you attempting a fresh install?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

What is IOCBIOS? If you are overclocking the system...the first order of business should be to return the BIOS to default settings, IMO.

Do you have a legal install of Windows?

why did you replace the hard drive?

Why did you flash the BIOS...where did the update come from?

Does the system boot into the old drive today?

Have you an appropriate hard drive diagnostic...on any of the hard drives previously or now attached to the system?

Gigabyte Bios F5

ga-zx68xp-ud3p board

intel i5 2500K

evga 560 Ti supper clocked video card

legit everything windows 7 disk with sp1 on it

 

on august 25th while on computer a notification pooped up telling me that my system had been restored to a previous date- it shut down and restarted- i freaked out i never did this.

I started investigating and found many strange dates that did not appear right and since i didnt initiate this I decided to do a fresh install- each time it restored it was to the exact same point which was when the system did its own restore- 

i looked at the bios and on gigabyte they have a qflash program in bios in the flash type and size it said unknown- so i reflashed it said it was ok  when i rebooted to bios and checked the qflash again----then I did a fresh install and back to the same bad point

 

i systematically repeated the same actions and found that only when the evga card was installed the qflash reported the unknown condition. so i purchased a new dvd drive and hard drive- removed video card re-flashed bios installed new components and it was back to the same point in windows after the restore .

 

at this point i started looking at permisions all elevated or restricted- it seemed as if i was a client on a virtual machine- i have ran all kinds of scanners virus malware etc. i tried to copy those files but was not allowed to so i took pictures of the screens.

 

I even did the drive wipe nuke- no help

 

ran a bootable memory scanner and did the probe test and the memory seems occupied and bad as it will lock up and freeze

 

having the idea of a hijack i looked at router logs- from all over the place people had done a remote log on to my system-

 

i have pictures of the screens- files that i tried to copy to text- etc...

 

it appears to me ( not an expert but highly educated ) that the threads are being intercepted- files are being rendered useless ie. virus scanners etc...

 

short of a remote log on for you guys to see- tell me what you need hell i would even send the whole damn system for forensic analysis

 

i feel like i am crazy......or going there quick
