I'm at a loss. I believe that this problem in not caused by malware/virus. Have you tried disconnecting the D drive?

Hi

thanks for you help, I too am at a loss, the system passed the hardware tests so I need to ensure
the problem was not malware. 

The D drive is a partition on the hard drive, I mainly do not
have attached drives when working with my Laptop.

It could be the Graphics card but how can I tell, also I have a Toshiba HDD but Toshiba do not produce a 
test program like Seagate do and Seatools does not have the range of tests that is has for Seagate drives. 

I cannot run Seatools for DOS as the program does not see the Toshiba drive.

At lease we/you tried.

Regards

Daniel

Hi, thanks for the link, all I can say is WOW, I can't believe I forgot ll that stuff.

Back in the days of Pentium3, 256meg GPUs etc, that stuff is what I did on all of my home and work PC's 
to get some speed but since the CPUs and GPUs have gotten powerful it became unnecessary.

Your site has solved all my issues, it wasn't malware it was my stupidity....

Thank you so much.

Regards

Daniel
