    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7


    I agree - I ran NOD32 and Malwarebytes yesterday and I had stuff in there I didn't even know I had, got rid of it, boom. There is just a point where I KNOW I'm infected - Especially when Peerblock starts flashing constantly. That's a sure sign of a Rootkit infection.

    So, I would run TDSSkiller first, then Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, THEN do a full scan, you can download and use Eset NOD32 version 6.x something for free for 7 days - Plenty of time to eradicate any problems. But you still need to run D7 to repair those permissions.

    I finally have fresh install system and the Product Key was corrupted and been given a new number by MS after a hour.

    I had access to the regedit, but could not find the keys to removed various programs so I could removed the software that was not showing up as installed. Never seen this before. This is software I have being used for years.

    Never had this much problem with any OS since starting with the beta win 95 to win 8. Beta 8 didn't have this issues like the official one.

    Lets hope I don't have the same issues again and if so, win 7 Ultimate will replace it until I move to a Mac system.

    Well lets hope you don't end up going down that road again. How old is your system/hardware? If you start having issues again you may want to run some diagnostics on your hard drive and maybe check your RAM for errors. Issues with either one of those can cause data corruption which can cause Windows to have fits etc.

    24 gigs of ram new Jan with new 650Ti 2gig video.

    2 T HD that die was 9 months old. Installed the OS on a new 4T drive with a new 3T and 2T backup. Also 1.5 & 2T external drive. Removed the less than 3 year old 2 1T and 1.5T HD and used them in the docking bay now as an extra backup drives.

    System 2 years old. Installed Blue Ray Burner in Jan to go along with the old CD burner 52X

    I always do update checking, diagnostics monthly on everything with weekly defag of HD.

    Have the whole system checked in Jan since the Hardware not my skill.
