Rust requires 4GB of RAM, and especially experimental, so when it does work I don’t know if you’re going to be satisfied, but too little RAM won’t do this.
Open a command prompt as administrator and type the following command:
If the system file checker makes you reboot your computer when it’s done, you had corrupt Windows system files somewhere and the checker repaired Windows.
If it doesn’t require you to reboot, I would like you to reboot into Safe Mode with Networking (hit F8 before the Windows loading screen comes up) and then download the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-malware. We don’t need the paid versions for this.
Install it and update its definitions, and then run a full scan.
After MBAM is done, there’s one more thing to do. Download GMER from gmer.net. Choose the randomized file name download option, and then run it. This tool is powerful but all we care about is if the initial scan it does when launched spits out any
lines of text. Let it run for five minutes, and if nothing red comes up, reboot normally and try Rust again.
If red does come up, paste the full contents of the GMER window here, and keep the MBAM log file. Red text in GMER’s startup scan means suspected rootkits.
What antivirus are you running? Your first post in the thread says you disabled it, but what is it?
