I posted a message under the Windows XP forum, and they suggested I move to this forum. The message I posted there was regarding the following windows popup that I kept getting every 1 - 2 minutes:


Application popup: 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem : C:\DOCUME~1\donkey\LOCALS~1\Temp\cmd.exe
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:0567 IP:023e OP:63 68 65 2f 31 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.

They had me do the following:

1. Clean the perfetch and run disk cleanup. This did not help any.

Then they had me do the following:

1. Run Winsockxpfix and then XPFIX.exe

The did not help either. It actually made my PC not be able to obatain a IP address via DHCP. I had to manually enter the IP. The internet then worked.

I then went to the Malware Removal Guide. I downloaded and ran ATF Cleaner.

I then downloaded AVG Antispyware software. I rebooted into Safe mode and ran the software. It found Backdoor.HAXdoor. It moved it to Quarentine.

I then rebooted into normal mode, and now my PC is SO slow starting up its not funny, and it absolutly will not connect to the internet at all. I am using a differnt PC to send this message. I have no clue whats going on!

I ran a HijackThis and saved the log, but I have no way of posting it until I can get the internet connect back.

I looked at the Services in control panel, and I notice a lot that have "automatic" are not running.

Can anyone help me?
