Posted 06 July 2014 - 10:57 PM

I've been asked to fix this PC and I'm finding it quite difficult to identify the problem. Syshost seems to be one apparent issue as malwarebytes is detecting it as malware, another issue being I can't get it to go into task manager as it says I'm missing some pcwum.dll file. System restore seems to have unexpected errors (no details) that don't allow the process to complete. It also seems to be running extremely slow for some programs, causing them to be 'not responding' such as playing a video file in windows media player. Alas, I am here.

 

The attach.txt file has been added.

This is the DDS file:
