Hi, hope someone can help. Had some malware/trojan got them cleaned off with spybot and malwarebytes scanned with avast came up clean. All done in safemode. Before and after my problem still exists. When trying to do a check disks it comes up with the message “windows was unable to complete the disk check”. Tried with it as well by the way of the command prompt with the /f switch. It said it will do a disk check on reboot, but on reboot it doesn't. Now the second problem I noticed. The security center services will change startup type to disable. I set it to automatic but a short time later it will revert back to disable. Service can be started manually but it isn't running on restart till the automatic setting sticks.
Thanks for replying. Since I posted this message I discovered more problems. This included system restore nolonger work as I could no longer create a new restore point. It also made my sfc to check protected files. So finally decided to wipe the drive clean and start anew. The couse of all this was one of those warnings that you get in the system tray that try to get you to download fake antivirus software. In the taskmanger it show up as frmwrk32.exe. Must have messed up system files.
