My computer is now having trouble booting and I must run a system repair every time. 

 

I tried installing Hi-jack this but for some reason, it is not allowed to run even after I disable my Avast.

 

The system repair log said something about an error or corrupt file in the root or something along those lines.

 

I'm not too computer savvy so I don't know what any of this means.

Sorry to hear you're having troubles. Can you add some specifics from your system repair log? Any error numbers or specific exe or dll issues would help.

Just a quick search of that aswKbd refers to several pages of malware. I recommend doing a scan with malwarebytes antimalware to see if anything comes up.

I scanned it with malwarebytes and nothing is found. Do you think a boot scan is needed for this?

You'd better wait for a BC team member to help you with this...
