First of all Hi, I'm new to this forum and it looks like a great place. So basically my computer has been acting very strange lately. It all started a couple days ago when I needed to use internet explorer for a website to work properly. Somehow it had been corrupted (I believe I tried to uninstall it a long time ago) and after trying over and over to reinstall it I found this tool. http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/tweaking_com_repair_internet_explorer.html I ran it and it fixed my internet explorer like a charm but this is where things started getting strange. I started getting errors when opening programs, my windows explorer (not the browser) started hanging up, and it crashed once completely. Then I noticed that my F drive which is my largest general storage drive was completely gone. Windows can no longer recognize this drive in any computer. I tried hiren's boot disk's tools and Ultimate boot CD tools to try to recover this drive. Bios and the programs on these boot cds are able to recognize this drive but are unable to interact with it at all. So after all that I ran a scan with malwarebytes and kaspersky total security both of which found issues (I just did a scan 10 days ago with no problems at all). My computer is still acting generally strange. It is more sluggish than it has ever been, my cpu usuage is at a constant 10-20%, and for some reason when I am playing a game or something typing will be super slow especially in skype. It takes about 5 minutes for it to type a sentence sometimes after I press the keys. I really don't know whats going on could this be a virus that wasn't fixed with the scans? And if a virus did cause my harddrive to fail is there any way to recover it? Or is this all just coincidence and being caused because my harddrive just happened to fail? I ran a scan with HIjackthis which is how I found out about this website, I'll post the results. Not sure if it will help or not. Thanks in advance!
