so awhile back i noticed my pc acting strange.....i did the full monty of virus scans using several programs to do so ....i found nothing ....i formated
problem solved ....or so i thought .....a day or two after i formated i found that my second gpu wuz stuck in 8x mode and not 16x...and yes it matters i have done the testing and 8x vs 16x has a tremendous difference on vram speeds on the second card.....any way while looking for the issues and decided to block some things in with in window 10 remote desktop, workgroup, netbios, that sorta stuff ....so one day im sitting here and magically the second video card pops back to 16x......for the day ...the next day its back at 8x...then the following day i have the same crap going on with my pc ....web pages not loading ...seriously bad lag over network ....router needing to be restarted 5 to 6 times a day.....mouse not responding to input , keyboard stops working , hidden windows can be seen flashing in the back ground on the desktop.......i have formated 4 times in a 3 week period...the last time i formated i wiped all drives .....used samsung's secure wipe on my ssd and used hirens boot cd and used parted magic to wipe clean the hdd's i then pulled all drives i pulled out the cpu, i pulled out the ram, i pulled out the bios chip and battery,.....i then shorted all pins on cpu and bios chip and shorted ram by placing them on a metal plate .....after using panda usb immunization tool ....(before all this .....i made two usb's one for bios file and one for windows).....after about 3 hours i then installed the bios chip ....plugged up psu and with no ram and cpu i flashed bios chip....reinstalled every thing else no issue for 3 days every thing wuz good ....but I STILL GOT THIS DANG 16X 8X pcie lane isse.....bout 3rd day in my pc went back to doing the same old crap ..and this is after the 4th format and doing every thing else.....at this point im mad as hell and ready to beat a hacker down ....my pc is extrem water cooled and running awesomely untill all this crap i have bout 4k into everything and im just all bent outa shape man
so i hit up bleepingcomputers downloads and downloaded every single virus scanner you guys offer and found
