Think this is malware, but not sure.  Anyone else encounter this?  Occurs on startup,  Win 7-64 Pro begins to load, then stalls and goes blue.

You will see that, at the suggestion of a respected member, your topic has been moved.


However, as a matter of some urgency and to help anybody who may be able to help you, could you create another post giving the specs of your computer. At least the make and model, and if it is self-built, the major components such as motherboard, RAM, hard drive, graphics and PSU.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

Hi gbcarey. After posting the required information as requested, please post also the BSOD error code and if any details are included since you have mentioned it is not able to boot successfully or stalls on bluescreens. Have you tried booting to safemode by pressing F8 repeteadly at early splash screen? Can you give also one particular instance as to why you think your machine is currently infected?

FWIW:  http://www.carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=asmtxhci.sys , you might try uninstalling/reinstalling your USB 3.0 driver, if you have a 3.0 device attached, IMO.
