I keep getting a message on starting up my computer "Driver restore is not working". It seems to effect a lot of games. Any ideas what is wrong? And if it's a virus how do I get rid of it?

How long have you been getting the message?

What is your security program, is it current, have you run any other scans?

Are you getting the error message for any other programws? [not games]

Desktop or laptop? W8 or W8.1?

Anything else not working correctly?

Keep us posted

Have been getting it for about two weeks. Have McAfee installed (it's not the best I must admit). I have run malwarebytes. The message appears only on start up. Laptop W8. I have also done system restore back three weeks. Now the internet and only right click on the mouse works & internet is not accessible. Think I might have to take it to PCWorld shop.

Before spending any money consider:

If you have an installation disk for W8 try doing a startup repair or

Upgrading to W8.1

 

Is McAfee paid or free? What other security programs are installed? Any of them paid or running a trial period?

 

Keep us posted
