Dear community.

I hope someone here has some good advice, because I really don't know what to do next:

Just received my brand new M70 precision laptop last week, but I haven't been able to use it yet because of problems that first appeared to be due to malicious software.
The symptoms are similar to that of the blaster worm. When booting into Windows XP, I get an error message from svchost.exe saying "the instruction at '0x000cfe50' referenced memory at '0x000cfe50'. The memory could not be "written". Okay to terminate program. Cancel to debug."

Closing the window allows me to boot fully into XP, but then I get the infamous shut down in 60 seconds message:" the system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. This request was initiated by NT Authority\system. Message: Windows must restart because the RPC service terminated unexpectedly." And then it counts down from 60 seconds, after which it reboots.
I can stop this using the DOS prompt of course, but Windows is still behaving strange: some programs won't start or they behave abnormally, the Windows key doesn't work, minimized windows do not appear in the taskbar etc. If I keep on rebooting, then sometimes I'm lucky and get a normal functioning version of Windows.

I tried to format the hard disk and start all over, but the problem reappeared. I'm using panda fully up-to-date antivirus software. I have tried removal tool for the blaster worm and a few other worms but to no avail. Also, windows XP are fully updated with service pack two etc. To me, no suspicious processes are running. Please find my hijackthis log below.

I've also tried online virus scans, and some rootkitrevealer utilities, but by now I feel quite sure that it's not a virus problem. So it must be a software problem, because I have also done all of Dell's hardware diagnostic tests.

Cheers,Sune
