Code: [Select]
C:\WINDOWS\Installer\$PatchCache$\Managed\00002109030000000000000000F01FEC\12.0.6215\ACEPDE.DLL [E] The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error (1117)Maybe you should run
chkdsk /R
and schedule a full scan on next boot.

thanks for ur help. just out of curiosity i ran online housecall. it said i had 110 infections. i thought this rather strange and thought that perhaps they just want one to buy the full version. so i ran a boot avast as u first suggested and found nothing. then i ran super antispyware and found a few cookies then obsessively i ran malwarebytes it found two problems. now having worn out my disk i think i'm clean. thanks.

Unfortunately, that happens.
