Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm here because I'm trying to fix a computer that has lots of issues and I don't know how to work it out.

First, let me say that when I first saw the computer I realized it had plenty of spyware and troyans and when booting in normal mode, got BSOD 0x50. Also, there was no internet connection.. the network connections folder was empty (not even the create new button).
This is what I did:
- Boot in safe mode (not getting any BSOD)
- Installed and ran kaspersky AV and Spybot S&D. Fixed several troyans and spyware.
- Ran CCleaner. Cleared temporary files and fixed registry issues.

After that, there was no spyware except for rpcc.dll (smitfraud.c) that couldn't be deleted (even at boot). Deleted file manually with avenger.

Now, the computer is free of spyware but I'm still getting the BSOD with same error (no file specified) and the network connections folder is still empty.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Many Thanks
