Hi. I am new to this forum...I signed up because I am out of options and about to smash my computer into pieces.
I have an Hp Omni-1057c all-in-one, my problem has been ongoing for weeks now.
I recently discovered my pc was badly hit with a rootkit from he'll. I have tried unsuccessfully to do a clean re-installation of Windows 7 HOME premium with the Hp Oem recovery discs. I have lost all my data so I don't really have anything to lose now. I am up to 12 tries of installing Windows and as soon as my desktop appears for the first time, all sorts of weird processes are running and one called: TrustedInstaller. No matter what I have trie, it deletes only momentarily. Keep in mind, this is all going on with no Internet connection set up and no windows updates. When i try to shut down for the first time... Everything, windows says there is one update file that must install after restart.
I have erased, wiped, formatted, dban nuke, reset bios, reset cmos, removed battery....all of that and it still appears.
Tonight I even tried installing Windows 7 ULTIMATE, Non-HP and it still does the exact same thing.
I know there is atleast a rootkit at minimum because if I try start up repair it fails everyone. I check details and it says root file error.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS HAIR-PULLING NON-SENSE!!!
Thanks for your time ---
