Hi everyone (again).
First and foremost I want to thank all the help I have had here over the past year or two. I have sincere appreciation for the free help you guys give.
Well last time out, I thought I had a virus and it turned out I hadn't after getting a slow running pc, slow boot up and lots of crashes in which I never had over the years with the same pc and same windows install.
A few nights ago, my pc took a very long time to boot up. It usually boots up in 25-30 seconds, thanks to Raid 0 of two SD drives.
Anyhow, there were no updates installing or configuring - it just booted the same as ever, but it was very slow when it got tot he Windows logos. It took probably 2-3 minutes to finally get to my desktop and a popup came up saying some windows file was corrupt. Sadly I pressed a button by accident and I didn't get the message.
I ran check disc and all was fine, no windows errors. So I proceeded to run my avast and also got no viruses. However I tried running some of my other virus scanners and they wont run, coming up with windows error popups saying the file cannot be run for whaetver reason. I tried using tdskiller and malwarebytes and these windows errors would pop up.
My games, music and movies all run fine! The only errors I get are from my soccer game which happens when I exit it every time and that is a known issue from a mod I use, so nothing related to my pc.
Any help would be great. I kinda feel it's suspicious that files I download from this site to virus check all get similar erors.
