Solved Ran Adware Cleaner, JRT, Eset and then . . .

Specs: Windows 7 home, Intel Pent., cpu g630, 4.00 GB, 64 bit
After I ran Eset I rebooted comp. I had stopped Eset as it was going for 3 hrs, searching 500,000 objects and found nothing.

It rebooted as always, desktop was as always, then all the icons and cursor turned very large and transparent, like it was in Safe Mode. And the screen was much too large to fit the area.

Rebooted a few times to no avail.

I then did a Sys Recovery to a day previous and it worked out fine.

Just wondering what could have caused it, maybe the Eset?

To be honest it could have been caused by anything except faulty hardware.

In other words, whatever it was, it's software or OS related, so ESET may well have been the culprit. Impossible to say for sure now that Windows is running okay.

ESET isn't very popular these days, there are better rivals out there, and I wouldn't pay for antivirus software anyway. The excellent one I've used for several years has always been free (Comodo).

✔ Best Answer
I have given up on Eset... I had it installed on a Mac system and became a true PIA... Frequent pop up boxes; regarded almost every site as potentially damaging and blocked it; including MS and Mac/Apple sites and resources... False positives galore; and couldn't remove one or two things it said it had found that were possibly genuine pests - whereas Bitdefender did; and Bitdefender does just fine (freebie version..) Also it (Eset) slowed down boot up and overall performance... I have a year left to run on a 2yr subscription; I will not be renewing...; and have already removed it from my Mac system.

OK, Thanks to both of you for the valuable info. I will take it off my list and try Comodo and Bitdefender instead.

I also use Adware, JRT, Malwarebytes, RogueKiller and ComboFix. And sometimes, Spyhunter, HitmanPro Kickstart. And finish up with DelFix.

I hope these are still OK?

There are bad vibes around about SpyHunter:
