General Computer Problems + BSOD

Hi, my computer is currently suffering terrible problems - sometimes, I can just log on and, before I've been able to do anything, it will crash. The internet regularly fails to connect and now my Windows Media Player is not working either - in general it is slow, unresponsive and prone to crashes or other problems which result in me having to restart - such as the disappearance of the start bar or the "Task Manager" spreading itself multiple times across the entire screen when I try to open it.

When attempting to run an ewido scan to combat these problems myself - I was greeted with a blue screen which read:


Also, I am suspicious of a processing continually running called "wowexec.exe" as its "Mem Usage" field is blank and it re-opens itself whenever I choose to close it.

Also, whenever I am logging off of my Windows XP area or shutting the computer down I am told that "NSESRCWP.EXE - DLL" and "SHLWSOCK.EXE - DLL" "failed to initialize because the windows station is shutting down". Furthermore, I am shown a loading bar to "End Program ccApp" at the same time. I am unsure what any of this is and it comes up frequently whenever I log off/shut down.

Thanks for your help.

wowexec.exe is a part the operating system, and supports the use of 16-bit processes within Windows NT, 2000, XP and later version of Windows.This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.
