Specs: Windows 7
About three weeks ago I started to notice that I was having trouble starting word 2010. So what I did was rather then try to figure out what is going on, I simply uninstalled microsoft office 2010 with the intension of re-installing it again. When I tried to reinstall it again, I got a message during the installation process stating that microsoft office encountered an error and that the installation process was halted. It gave no error message. I have not been able to restall it ever since.

Looking deeper into the situation I discovered that I had been invaded by the "bloodhound.exp" virus. This made sence because I noticed that my computer began to show signs of booting up problems (taking more time than usual to boot up).

My operating system is W7-H-Premium edition. I use ACRONIS as my backup system, but when I start ACRONIS to recove my backup, nothing much happens. It simple sits there and does nothing. No error messages or anything. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank all in advance.

Post #1 was just a starting point. We may need to do more.

Do post the Malwarebytes' log, and we will take it from there.
