Have you used JRT before ?

Did you disable your AV before running JRT ?

macaw, before you wipe your hdd, try doing a restore to a point before you used Junkware removal tool.

If you got it from here http://www.bleepingcomputer.co.....oval-tool/ I would bet it did nothing adverse to your computer.

Is possible that a nasty sneaked in, they had a problem with the combofix download recently too but were very quick to rectify the problems

Hi, Xhi

How are you, you have help with a lot of things when i cant fix, this whole site has :0)

And yes, thats where i did down loaded. the first problem i had was the ( PC FIX SPEED 27/7 HELP) WHICH WAS A VIRUS

Then i google to see what else i may run and it show this JUNKWARE REMOVAL TOOL on the site you gave the link to Xhi

But, why would my laptop start running crazy after that load? i wonder was i on a fake site? cause there was a post on yahoo.com then a link to BLEEPING COMPUTER? I dont know and i hate to think that i got a virus there :0(

I've used it once before, a while back now and I made sure to disable the AV as this can cause problems according to the instructions of use, and as such never had a problem.

It could be that this PC Fix Speed...malware/PUP has done the damage and JRT removed it or elements of it causing an exhibited reload of the malware through the nearest connection on offer in this case Crossloop.

Of course this is just a guess at this stage.

Personally I would download and run DDS also from BleepCom, and see what is on the system there may be other problems.
