Sometimes when I'm shutting down my machine I get the blue screen of death. Then it automatically just starts rebooting again. So once I come back from this error, I get the "report error" gig. I get to the point where I view the technical aspect and here's what I receive as the problems:

Now I don't know what that's about I check the online thing and it didn't give much help. The problem is rare comes and goes. I don't know if that ties into my machine bogging down for no reason the processor says it's usage is 100 percent but none of the programs I see are being used. Also I don't know if that also effects the Dr. Watson error I get sometimes in regard to having windows open like my documents, etc etc. May be malware or something else but spysweeper, ad-aware, and/or spybot have not brought anything up.

Thank you for your time.

Your report references a "Temp" file. Since this is sporatic, perhaps it has to do with on-line activity? Do you occaisionally play an online game that makes a temp file? I would try using ATF Cleaner: http://www.majorgeek...aner_d4949.html It is a very effective temp file remover. I run it just before shut down. Quite quick. It offers to clean cookies and prefetch, both of which I do not select. Since I use Opera, it empties its disc cache when it closes, saving only the cookies I want. There was no Google for "WERc0b9.dir00." To be sure that you are not hosting malware, follow the instructions at: http://www.geekstogo..._Log-t2852.html If you do need to post a HJT log, please do so in the malware section of the forum. You will get specially trained help from the anti-malware staff.
