Hey all

Earlier today my computer blue screened and one of the stop codes was a 0xC code. I try to google this stuff and get more info before I bug yous guys with questions, and I believe that particular code refers to a sort of malware? Didn't find much out how to help FIX it, but maybe someone could help point me in the right direction.

A few symptoms my computer is displaying:

-Sudden ventrilo crash and upon reconnect, buttons and text were missing altogether
-After opening an internet browser, I noticed my desktop was missing buttons, text, and symbols (start button text and symbols were missing)
-A few missing boxes of various windows are blacked out and a few remain BLANK buttons-- no text/symbols

I also ran my anti-virus/anti-spyware program and it caught nothing :)

I hope my computer isn't too sick =(
I have a hijackthis log available if need be.
