My backup at this moment is only partial and therefore' I would prefer to keep clean install as the last resort option. (Can you suggest a cloud service, just in case?)
I'm running at this moment the online services, ESET and Microsoft safety scanner. Since my system looks problematic, I decided to run comprehensive scans' which are still working after 36 hours.
Strangely enough, until this moment,
Microsoft safety scanner discovered 5 problems and ESET - 109! (Looks like ESET uncovered old cookies etc. from drives of an ancient time. I still wait for the scan completion prior to any action.
Is there anything new evident from my last report?
In addition to these two scanning program, Norton Security free runs its own control, and once awhile I run Malwarebytes.
