Ok, so I ran Farbar, clicked 'fix', after running for a long time, my screen went black, then computer re-booted itself & went to "Windows Error Recovery' screen, I chose Start Normally. Eventually it came to the login, I was able to logon as usual. I immediately checked for a Fixlog & surprise, it was there. Before running the fix, I didn't have very good luck finding my original Farbar files, finally found them, then the Farbar program wasn't in the file I created, just the other documents-I eventually located the exe & moved it to the Farbar file & ran it. I then noticed that a lot of my files in Explorer show they are "shared". I am the only one that uses this computer, I don't share my files. I have attached the fixlog. Regarding some of the problems I'm having, and this is by no means a complete list, just what I can remember at the moment (I'm sure I'll remember more later) are as follows:
The big one lately is my antivirus keeps turning off, I tried uninstalling then re-installing but I can't get it to uninstall all of the files so I just reinstalled it, it won't turn on, I have no protection, can't get Windows defender to work either, files/documents tend to multiply- files documents are readable one day, then they are replaced with unreadable symbols or have chunks missing or replaced with other verbiage or in another language-when looking for help such as Windows Help (?) or other sites' help section, I'll get a message that I only have partial internet access, or no internet access- lots of goofy printer stuff, like I am not connected to a printer or the print will be huge or tiny or off center, or the font will be different - maybe darker & clearer then pale with a blank sheet separating each doc-when using the snipping tool, I'll often see a flash of another snip window briefly that has a very different font, bolder & thicker, or when using snip's hi-lighter or pen the pen /hi-lighter will be off by about 2-3 inches from where my cursor is-sometimes it looks like there is another window under mine (and not Aero)-my default settings will change-my icons will change-the notifications in my tray will be different, there will be more, and/or some will go away (some I don't even know what they are)-my Explorer files will be arranged differently, I like mine to show detail - but they will often change to large icons or something else-Explorer details columns will disappear & I'll have to set them again-there are a few things I am confused about in Event viewer, logs look like a backup was done when I don't have any scheduled backups, I do manual backups,references to fax & I don't use a fax machine, a lot of tasks done by svhost,logons by accounts I don't recognize, sometimes my screen will start scrolling & I don't even have my hands anywhere near my touchpad, there seems to be a lot of hidden usb and other devices connected to my laptop when I look at computer management devices, sometimes my computer will get very slow & I'll go to to services- sometimes it feels as though someone is watching/logging what I'm doing, my yahoo page was in a different language one morning ( my yahoo mail & Amazon accounts were also hacked)-this is a sampling of things I've noticed. If you could help me out I'd be very grateful, I try to research this stuff on my own but it as my subject line says - I'm overwhelmed.
