Hi,

Lots of ideas but I think it will work better if you can give us some additional information about your system -OS, version, other changes problems, differences in operation. What program did you use to do the backup? External drive, cloud, or just a different partition? Free space on the primary dirve? Security software installed, is it current?

Thanks

Sounds like he may still be infected. This topic needs to be moved to Am I Infected forum and if everything returns clean, then we can continue on here.
