Hello :), first of all I have been referred here from the Virus, Spyware, and Trojan Removal forum at the address of http://www.geekstogo...n....html&st=15. After my system got infected, I updated Windows as step 3 of the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide stated. Now that my computer seems free of viruses, I'm having problems with random BSoDs and Internet Explorer running in the background.

I'll give you guys a dread-free, easy to read summary of my problems:

Usually triggered after I enter my password to log into Windows (0x0000007E), during virus scans (Page_Fault_In_Nonpage_Area), and randomly while starting music or videos (kmixer.sys).

Up to 4 iexplore.exe 's that run on start up and hog up resources. After they open for a couple of seconds, they close and open again, graying out the current window I'm on so I have to click back on it... pretty annoying :). I thought it was a form of malware but my logs have come up clean. As I am typing this, this problem isn't happening but I've had it go away and come back before.

I will be looking forward to good news, thank you for your time :)

Well let's start ripping this apart and see what we can find.

Download WhoCrashed from the link in my signature below
This program checks for any drivers which may have been causing your computer to crash....

Click on the file you just downloaded and run it.
Put a tick in Accept then click on Next
Put a tick in the Don't create a start menu folder then click Next
Put a tick in Create a Desktop Icon then click on Install and make sure there is a tick in Launch Whocrashed before clicking Finish
Click Analyze
It will want to download the Debugger and install it Say Yes

WhoCrashed will create report but you have to scroll down to see it
Copy and paste it into your next reply

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
7: Attach to your next reply.

Go to
Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Let me know if this fixes the problem
