Actually I had to go several restore points back to get it operational again. It works, but still has the original problem. I really do not think it is a malware issue. At this point, I only investigate it because it is a good learning exercise. It would have been easier to just reformat and re-install. :-(

Hi, Yes, this does appear to be a hardware issue and a reformat would be in order. If you wish assistance with this, please post in our Hardware Forum and the tech's will assist you with the process. Good Luck, ~CB

It took several restore points back, not just the one made by the tool. It's behaving like it did before I started this process. This is an interesting learning experience. My plan is to remove the HD and scan it as a secondary drive in a different computer. That can sometimes find things that are hidden by clever malware.

Oddly, I repeated my reply from earlier today (more or less) because I saw neither my post nor your response until after I reposted. Just ignore it. Thanks.
