I am glad to hear that your issue is resolved!
However if you don't mind, I want to make sure there is nothing lurking on the system so just in case I want you to go through these steps:
The most of them should take no more than 5 minutes each (but the time they take to complete can vary depending on the size of your hard and the speed of your computer).
- Please download RKill by Grinler from the link below and save it to your desktop.
- Before we begin, you should disable your anti-malware softwares you have installed so they do not interfere RKill running as some anti-malware softwares detect RKill as malicious. Please refer to this page if you are not sure how.
- Double-click on Rkill on your desktop to run it. (If you are using Windows Vista, please right-click on it and select Run As Administrator)
- A black screen will appear and then disappear. Please do not worry, that is normal. This means that the tool has been successfully executed.
- If nothing happens or if the tool does not run, please let me know in your next reply.
- A log pops up at the end of the run. This log file is located at C:\rkill.log.
- Please post the log in your next reply.
