Have I got malware or was this event caused by a disk check gone wrong?
Toshiba Satellite L770 laptop - 64 bit
Windows 7 Home
Using Mozilla exclusively as IB
Noticed that SolidWorks was taking 10 minutes to open
Disk clean up
Loading MBAM and scanned - found PUP Slimware Utilities driver only
Disk check with no bad sectors found
Upon restart, serious changes:
appear to have lost internet connection
half of the desktop shortcuts disappeared including all Microsoft Office for example and all desktop files
Mozilla shortcut has been corrupted
Thunderbird is functional but there is no data including email accounts - appears like a fresh program download.
