Hello dear specialists

 

I'm consider myself as having a little bit knowledge about Computers

 

But what happened is very weird.

 

I wanted to open one of the Office programms, it gave me a message that it couldnt be started then it has shut down again.

 

I run for example outlook as admin it works

 

Next thing

 

I got a PDF on my PC or in Outlook

 

I open it nothing happens 

 

I open Adobe Reader then click on the PDF then it works

 

Several Windows Tools like Snipping tool stopped to work too

 

I've reinstalled Windows twice and this keeps happening

 

First it all works perfect for 1 - 3 days then these things happen again

 

I do not want to reinstall my Windows every third day LoL

 

I appericate yout help

 

Thank you

tweaking.com's Windows Repair (All in One) -- Safe Mode with Networking -- do items #26 & 27, restart a couple of times.  Accept the defaults if such also flag system files associations.

I see TripleDeuce and I posted at the same time.   :)

If this keeps on happening after a couple of fresh installations I would test the hdd.

 

Please download and run SeatTools for Windows.
 
Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.
 
Once the installation begins you will see an image similar to the one below.

1.  SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer.  Please remove any external storage devices connected via USB ports.
 
2.  Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found.  Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on.
 
3.  You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options.  Please click on Long Generic Test
 
4.  This will start the scan.  When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.

5.  The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.  Post the results of the scan in your topic.
 
6.  Click on Help, then click on View Log File.  If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Please tell us you have recent OS and data partition backups.  Whether software or hardware caused, your Windows is problematic.

Checked the HDD with SeaTools --> All fine

 

Used tweaking.com tool --> all fine

 

Have run MalwareBytes --> Found a svchost.exe Virus

 

Malwarebytes cant remove it, I got the Virus from connecting to an infected RDP - Server

 

Please help nearly 80% of my Computer stopped to work.

 

I'm writing from Internet Explorer because all my other Browsers stopped to work.

 

 

I use Win 7 professional

 

Got an SSD where Windows is and an HDD where my games + Tools + Movies are

 

Thank you

You now need to go and start a topic in the 'Am I infected ?' section of BC.

 

Read the guides at the start of that section, give details of your computer and OS, include the Malwarebytes log if you can and include a link to this topic - copy and paste the URL from the top of this page.

 

It is a priority to clean your computer of infection. Once it is declared clean you will be most welcome to come back to the Win 7 section and start a new topic if you are still having Windows problems.

 

Because you said you found a virus and dealing with these is not allowed in this section I am going to close this topic. Please start a new topic in 'Am I infected ?' and if you have any questions, send me a PM.

 

Chris Cosgrove


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 !
