When I try and start the new games that I have the computer restarts and says that it has recovered from a serious error. Need for speed carbon which I have had for a while works fine so my graphics card seems to be ok. I have updated the driver but this did not stop the problem. The game that wont start are Brian Laras cricket 2007, GT Legends and Trackmania. My operating system is XP PRO and my graphics card is a Radeon 9600. Any help would be gladdly recieved as no new games fills me with dread.

Hello stormfuzz and welcome to G2G!

First of all please turn off auto restart on error as this might give us a blue screen to work with.

Right click my computer > click properties > click advanced > click settings under startup and recovery > untick automatically restart on error > click ok > click apply and restart your PC.

If the PC blue screens note down the information and paste it with your next post.

What are the specs of your PC?
If you don't know then please download and run SysSpec. Run the file > click on the system button > click edit > click copy to clipboard and then paste it with your reply.

Hi thanks for your reply. I did as you suggested and turned the auto start off and got the blue screen, under the part where it says technical info it said

When I send the error report it comes back saying that I am infected with the rustock trojan. I have done everything that it suggests but no change. I have run my own anti-virus to no avail as well (Avast).

Thanks for your time

I did a Google for lzx32.sys and it appears to be a rootkit.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the read before posting thread.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
