Today my pc has been "jerky" when playing games or video was fine yesterday,i wanted to do a system restore as this seems the only alternative but it cannot complete because it cant gain access to all the files?

On the Microsoft site there a few suggestions turn off Antivirus,Run sfc,ensure shadow volume copy in services is automatic,done all that still no luck

Anyone?

Try it in safe mode.

Still same problem

I thought about doing a registry clean using ccleaner, when I had a look through the scheduled tasks and one enabled task I didn't recognise was called "hivecluster\windowsmail\wabmig.exe"

Had a quick google and some say its a virus some say its part of Microsoft Windows Mail which I don't have or use?? Neither Antivirus or Malwarebytes recognises this as a problem

Can I disable it?

Looks like it is part of Microsoft's outlook express etc is your email programs still working.

Flagged on the Emsisoft site.

Probably to get you to buy it maybe.

It also showed this.

Reported Behavior

Details: No suspicious behavior reported so far. So why flag it,

I use Emsisoft and it sometimes flags something is bad so you quarantine it and it comes up as safe. So basically you do not know if you should allow it again or not.

Apart from that it is an excelant program to have on your computer.

All I know is after disabling that task in the schedule my pc is working now
