Hi Mz 30,
Thanks for your prompt response; I am off to Devon from 8th to the 15th September (without my laptop) but will monitor my e-mail in a local internet cafe. I will only act upon any instructions when I am re-united with my laptop.
Hope you head will soon be better!!

Have had to take my lap top to the supplier as I got the message: "File missing or corrupt; insert original CD and press r at first page" This followed a scan requiring restart . As I dont have the CD I have had to ask for assistance. I should be getting my lap top back today I will then try your suggestion.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
