    You're welcome.

    Services (not the ones in services.msc) and/or installed drivers are likely still an issue with that uninstall method.

    You can check C:\Windows\System32\drivers for their drivers to be gone.

    Another excellent thing to use is Dameware NT Utilities to look over services and uninstall using that, if any Avast, Checkpoint, ZoneAlarm, Kaspersky services are seen - a.k.a. TrueVector, vsdatant, kl1, kl2, ZoneAlarm Toolbar, Kaspersky Lab Driver, and whatever the others have.

    If you use it, when looking at services, also check the box to show device drivers.

    Thanks GMan. Is there a basic freeware version of Dameware NT Utilities? The version I found was selling around $400. Does that sound right?

Hello all. New member here. I have had an issue with my PC since I "upgraded" to windows 8.1 earlier this year that is driving me batty. Unfortunately, I upgraded the hardware (motherboard, CPU, and RAM) at the same time, so I can't rule out a hardware issue completely. The issue stuck around...

New to the Forums, but not new to these errors. been having them for a while now, it's one or the other and happens about once a day or so, but with the fast restarts and such it never sets me back too far, but I still wish to fix this all. Included is the SF file for your looking purposes.
I've been looking at the Surface Pro and other tablet/laptop convertible machines fitted with Win 8. The top-end models usually offer only flash memory in stead of a hard drive.
