    Default So far so good

    I guess the link I posted was only to a part of the thread I meant to link, sorry about that. The machine is acting fine as of now (with the exception of, when I start it up nearly all the programs are loaded. not sure if that's a good thing or bad but I like fast start ups.) The scan came up clean and all seems well. thanks again and I'll wait to hear back from you.

    Sounds good

    The machine is acting fine as of now (with the exception of, when I start it up nearly all the programs are loaded. not sure if that's a good thing or bad but I like fast start ups.)
    I might can help with that.
    Windows 10 in my mind is harder to get into the bootup programs to disable.
    Then again your onboard antivirus could be preforming a bootup scan during start up.

    Let's see if there are any startup items we can disable to improve performance.

    Go here to download HJT
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/hijackthis/
    • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.

    Default Interesting stuff

    Before the scan completed, a window (see screenshot) opened. I'll wait to hear back with any suggestions before running any fixes. Thanks and happy New Year!

    That error is to be expected on a Windows 10 machine, you can ignore it.

    Typically, these entries are infrequently used tasks that can be started manually, if necessary.
    Removing/disabling these items from statup will help with system resources.

    Open HijackThis, Click Do a system scan only, checkmark these. Then close all other windows and browsers except HijackThis and press fix checked.

    Reboot the computer to set the registry.

    Well, at this point I can say the Computer is working much, much better. From my viewpoint, I'd say its fixed. One thing that occurred since the fix is that unexpectedly, the computer restarted on me as I was using it. This was a first since I got the machine, and I've been told it's not a good sign, so I opened the event viewer as soon as the restart was complete to see what was going on. there were a lot of examples of settings being changed in the system, my problem is I'm not even close to being able to recognize a legitimate event from an attack. I attached a couple SS's of windows to see what your opinion is, let me know if you would like more info on this or have any other questions. Thanks and have a good one.

    Glad to hear it's working better.

    I've tried to research those errors/messages from event viewer
    Amcache.hve file is a registry hive file regarding Program Compatibility Assistant, which stores the executed information of applications. With Amcache.hve file, the execution path, first executed time as well as deleted time, Corrupt download or incomplete
    These executed applications include the execution path, first executed time, deleted time, and first installation.

    With what we have worked with along with tools and adjustments, I'd say OK but I'm going to refer back and keep a check on this area.


    Ran by oldman (administrator) on EUSTACE (16-12-2017 03:03:27)

    One thing I noticed in the print you posted was the name or account that the machine was on when the message was created.
    The account name was already on the computer so I don't think thats new.
    Is this a work computer on a network or is this your computer on a home network? If it's the latter, you could turn off File & Printer sharing if it's not needed. I'd also turn off remote access. Change the password on your user account as well.
    Or, that account can be deleted?

    Now, the computer restarting itself.
    One in good working condition as I know it shouldn't do that. And it's possibly a sign of something important either struggling or showing it's not a happy camper.
    If this happens again I think I should send you to a tech forum that helps with these types of issues because, it's just not my kind of forte/strong point....

    Default Another restart

    While reading a publication on the NIH.gov site at almost exactly 1:00 pm the computer did another unexpected restart. I attached a couple more possibly relevant Screen Shots. the computer is on a private secure router. One thing that concerns me is the "impersonation level". Where do you think I should go with this at this point?

    Default More thoughts on the restart

    As an afterthought, I noticed some items in the screen shots that seem very suspicious.
    In the first restart instance on 12/31/17, the successful login account name is "EUSTACE$" I never cap-locked the name and the $ sign isn't familiar to me either. see upload #1.
    The second item is in upload #2 (Security login 01-03), what I noticed was Special privileges assigned to new logon. I'm not sure who the ID (0x3E7) is but the Privileges assigned are a little concerning to me. There are many examples of changes happening during both restarts but I'm hoping the uploads I posted are helpful in deciphering whats going on in my machine, if there's anything more I can provide please let me know. Thanks much.
