I downloaded a few emails from people I know and six patches from MS. All of a sudden my computer started dumping physical memory. I turned it off. Now it continues to lock up after being rebooted for apprx. 2 minutes. I have tried to reinstall win 2000 prof, can't get through full scan of spybot, and rebooted through safe mode. No matter what I do is locks up after about 2 minutes. Please help!!! I am out of ideas.

Hi billhancock,

Welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

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.

You may need to download this to a a floppy from another system, and then run it on yours. Should be able to complete a scan in under 2 minutes and save the log to the floppy.
