If everything is OK then mark it as solved after you thank Glaswegian for all the hard work & effort he has put in to helping you

OK, I'll mark it as solved although I'm not sure that it is. There are many many unanswered questions, just follow the thread and you'll see. Of course I thank Glaswegian (and anyone else who helped me) for all his work and I truly appreciate that. But listen, I don't need you to TELL me to thank anyone. I can do that on my own. Cheers. And thanks again.

Hi

The file quarantined is legit but not vital. You can see some potential uses for it here

http://www.werockyourweb.com/forums/...ession-win-exe

Other than that no signs of any rootkit.

If you have not done so already, then you should back up all important files, either to a CD/DVD or external drive or whatever suits. I still think you may have some hard drive problems that could return in the future. Best to be prepared.

If there are no more questions I'll let you go. Good luck with the job hunting - it cannot be easy at this time.

Jobs.
No it certainly isn't. I guess I'll just to wait on future computer problems cropping up at some point. Don't understand though, why it can't be fixed. I guess it's just an old computer.

Glaswegian, strange thing happened. Just after I finished typing out and posting my previous message I visited a Wallaper site via My Favourites. Instantly after clicking the web-link in My Favourites the BSOD appeared. It was only there for a second and so I couldn't read anything before the screen went blank except something like BALL POOL, I know it wasn't exactly that but it was something like it.
Also, when the computer came back on it went straight into a Check-Verification-Recovery thingy. I may even have got that bit wrong.
While it was doing it's thing I managed to write down some info which I hope can shed some light on this problem, if not then so be it.
'Deleting Index Entry Twitte01-pngIN Index$I30 0 file 8149 Index verification completed CHKDSK is recovering lost files.
Recovering Orphaned File TWITTE-1.Png 11649 into Directory File 8149.'

Now, there may be one or two errors in there but I was in a hurry to write it all down before the computer rebooted.
Also, when it rebooted there was the usual Error Report - 'C:/Docume~1/Rowe/Locals~1/Temp/WEROc25.dir00/miniOS1612-01-dmp.'
And;
'C:/Docume~1/Rowe/Locals~1/Temp/WEROc25.dir00/Sysdata.xml'
If you could please have a look at this and tell me what you make of it.

Please point out where, between post 196 and post 200, which is where those two quotes of yours were take from, where you explain that a problem has returned.

And I suggest you do so in a much more polite manner than what I've just quoted from your most recent post.

Just for your own reference, here are all those posts (196 - 200). Please show me where in these posts below that you explain there is another problem.

Since you haven't specified, I'm going to assume you are referring to this?
Quote:
here are many many unanswered questions
If so, this in no way discusses a returning problem. This indicates that you have past questions, which could be about anything at all in this thread. You've asked questions about programs you already had on your computer, programs you've been asked to download, you've asked about how malware effects your computer, you've asked about MANY things. None of us here have any idea what "questions" you are currently referring to. Regardless......nothing about that sentence indicates you have a specific problem that has returned during the time between those posts of yours that I originally referenced. You merely say you have "some unanswered questions." You say you are not sure that it is solved, even though you had just said it was working okay......and you give no reason why you feel it is not solved.

You point out a new problem ONLY AFTER I questioned those posts.

So your snide insinuation that I was too stupid to have figured it out on my own is highly inappropriate and your continued
refusal to give clarification or apologize for your rudeness when I expressed confusion to your own statements leads me to believe you are simply enjoying the attention you are getting from our malware experts and you just don't want to let go of that attention. In light of the fact that I cannot get you to answer me in an appropriate manner, this thread is now closed.

If you do indeed have a NEW problem regarding a BSOD, you may post that in the forum that matches your operating system. Be aware, however, that you have brought attention on yourself by your disrespect and rudeness in this thread, so I suggest you take your time and make any future posts in a civil and polite manner.
