Did you allow Windows Repair to set a system restore point ??

Clean Boot isn't a Windows repair tool, it's a diagnostic tool.


Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

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

Condobloke  and  DC3;

Thank you for the replies.

Condobloke -  Yes Windows Repair did  didcreate a restor point.

DC3  -  Yes did boot into save mode and used last good configeration to recover.

Again thanks for the replies.


Got into this mess by attempting to use a few of MALWAREBYTES diagnostic tools.

Attempts  failed with a message the tools  were not 32 or 64 bit programs.

Sent an email to Malwarebytes and their tech support responded with a couple of scans.

The scan were negative according to MB tech support..

However,   Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit  mbar-  still gets  ".....is  not a valid Win32 application"

I also get the "...version of the file is not compatable with system....x86  or  x64....".

MB tech support suggested Windows Repair ( all in one ) by Tweaking.com.

As written above - did the diableing out of sequence and so did not get a "Clean Boot".



FIRST -  updating my backups and  system repair disk.


Still have a problem   -  I think   ??????


any thoughts on what direction to take ?
