i'm running a 3.2 pentium on windows XP that I put together this past Christmas, and ever since i've made it, it's been randomly restarting when i'm in the middle of doing things.

Also, when I go to my computer and right click on any of the drives, explorer crashes completely

after either one of these occurances, a Dr Watsons post mortem debugger message comes up, I know this is a regular windows program.. but it doesn't seem to be working right either

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808.Even the best antispyware programs are only able to remove about 70% of infections. Also, the line between spyware and trojans is getting blurred. You can never be too careful with these, I recommend at least one online scan.

Now, REBOOT in Normal Mode and have an On-line scan at this sites: Trend Micro or Panda Scan.

Then read HERE

REBOOT again.
Then we'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool HiJackThis and post a log as a new topic in the HijackThis Forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
