Memory for an HP G70-460US laptop

An HP laptop running the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system that I was using was performing poorly and when I checked the system's performance with the Windows Task Manager, I could see that the memory utilization was consistently high. So I decided to check on whether I could increase the memory in the system. A sticker on the underside of the laptop showed the model number to be G70-460US. I wondered whether I could also get the model number from a Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) command if the sticker was no longer present or was illegible, so I opened a command prompt window and checked to see what information I could get using the wmic csproduct get command.

Windows Defender detected TrojanClicker:JS/Chroject.A

I recently removed Trojan:Win32/Nymaim, which was detected by Windows Defender on a Microsoft Windows 10 system. When Windows Defender detected that malware, it prevented the weekly backup program on the system, which was the Windows 7 backup and restore utility, from completing successfully. After removing that malware, I ran the backup program again, but I found that again the backup program did not complete successfully due to Windows detecting a trojan during the backup operation. This time it was TrojanClicker:JS/Chroject.A.

Windows Defender detected Trojan:Win32/Nymaim

When I checked a Windows 10 system to ensure that the Windows 7 backup program that is scheduled to perform weekly backups of the system was functioning properly, I found that the last successful backup occurred on November 11, 2018. When I clicked on "More information" to determine the cause of the weekly backups failing, I saw the message "Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software." So I opened the Windows Security application by clicking on the Windows Start button, then selecting Settings, then Update & Security, then Windows Security. I then clicked on Virus & threat protection and selected Protection history, which showed an entry of "Remediation incomplete" for the backup that ran on February 16, 2020. The issue encountered was listed as "servere." I clicked on the downward-pointing arrowhead next to "severe" which showed the following for the malware detected:

Threat detected:Trojan:Win32/Nymaim
Alert level:Severe
Date:2/16/2020 10:46 PM
Category:Trojan
Details:This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.

Windows 7 Backup Failed Due to Detection of Virus in Shadow Copy

Microsoft Windows 10 comes with a backup program that will allow you to create a system image for backups. You can get to it by right-clicking on the Windows Start button and choosing "Settings" then "Backup," which is under "Update & Security," and then selecting "Go to Backup and Restore (Windows 7)." That program was being used to backup a Windows 10 system every weekend, but when I checked the status of backups for the system, I saw a message stating "The last backup did not complete successfully." I clicked on the "More information" button and saw a "Check your backup" message stating that the "Operation did not complete successfully because the file contains a virus or potentially unwanted software." When I clicked on "Show Details," I saw the time of the failed backup and "Error code: 0x800700E1."
