Sorry, I've made a mistake. Here we go again.

We will have to see file and folder structure of that drive. Running this will make list all of files and folders you have on that drive. Please analyze generated list before attaching just to be sure your privacy will not be violated.


  • Open Notepad (click Start button -> type notepad.exe -> press Enter)
  • Copy text from code block below and paste it into Notepad
Code: [Select]
cmd: dir /S H:
  • Go to File -> Save As
  • Make sure that  UTF-8 is selected as Encoding (left side of Save button)
  • Save it as fixlist.txt on Desktop
  • Open again FRST and click on button Fix
  • Wait until FRST finishes
  • fixlog.txt should be genereted and opened. Attach it your post and wait further instructions.

I cant seem to find the messages I've sent to. I have been looking at my https://forum.avast.com/index.php?action=pm;f=sent but it says 'no messages...'.
But it was only a fantasy.

I have not recived any PM from you?
Anyway Sass Drake is the one that analyze logs, not me

You can not see sendt PMs unless you check the box "Save a copy in my outbox"
You will then find them at  My Messages > Messages > Sendt Items

Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.
