I tried a system restore (apparently it hasn't been creating restore points, so I used a 3/26/12 date), no difference.
I can reboot into Safemode, and it won't crash; Safemode with networking, it does.
I used to use superantispyware but at some point the scan would get shut down about 5? minutes into the scan.
I know I've got some junk spy/malware but until now it's not been obvious or noticably intrusive.
I guess my ostrich days are over, and I come wimpering with my tail between my legs to you fine folks.... HELP! :c)
