Hi, thanks for any help that anyone can give.

About a week ago I executed a file that, no doubt, opened a pandora's box of problems which I have been battling ever since with the helpful advice available in the "Read this before you post any Hijack This logs!" piece. One thing that I did see popup was called "CollectedZ Trojan" but I suspect that's not all. I thought that I had possibly cleaned everything up, but recently started getting new problems and now I am only getting a blue screen, which comes up shortly after all the startup tasks have completed. So about 20 seconds of my desktop, then to the blue screen.

As a heads up, here are the things I have done to this point: downloaded and ran ATF Cleaner, set up system restore point, downloaded AVG Anti-spyware and ran it in safe mode, downloaded SUPERAnti-Spyware and ran complete scan, downloaded and ran AVG anti-virus. I have repeated these steps about once a day to see if it detects anything else. Some success, but now I'm totally stuck.

After several normal "you really did it now" messages, the blue screen message gives the following Technical Information:

***STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xB6FCB4A2, 0xB571C9EC, 0x00000000)

*** system32:1zx32.sys - Address B6FCB4A2 base at B6FC9000, DateStamp 459f29a6

I hope that helps to get things straightened out. By the way, I'm writing this message on my MacBook.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
