Have the techs given you a clean bill of health on the Malware Forum?

I believe my computer was said to be in good health, the person who helped me in the malware forum, he kept asking me 'how is your pc running now?' and I replied that the problem hasn't been resolved, and we went through some scanning and logs, then he finally suggested that it is an event error and that I should move this topic to XP for help. Now...at this point, I'm not sure what to take this problem as. =/ I did some google search and I found loads of people with the same problem, and they pinned it a Acebot Trojan.
Also there was someone on a different forum that posted exactly the same problem as me, earlier to this problem, I had a very bad case of spyware on my pc which disabled my pc properties, and locked my wall paper as a virus scan ad, and the quick tools menu had a red shield with a white x that says "Your computer is at risk! Please Scan for Viruses now!" and I followed some steps to get it removed, and miraculously it seemed to work fine, then the day after I "cured" the spyware the Dr. Watson error popped up for the first time and it has since then. Sorry for the long story.

True, but could there be an underlying problem? (to Broni)
more, or less useless anyway.
