I'm afraid I may be suffering from a few issues, but this is the one I need your help with. My computer just keeps turning off. I may be infected, and I'm looking into that, but I have noticed a peculiarity in my Event Viewer that I think is trouble. It seems that everytime my computer shuts off there are 2 events in the viewer in quick progression. 1) Adobe Active File MOnitor has started and then shortly thereafter an MSSQL error that reads thusly...

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: MSSQL$MICROSOFTBCM
Event Category: (8)
Event ID: 19011
Date: 8/27/2005
Time: 12:37:57 PM
User: N/A
Computer: THOMPSON
Description:
The description for Event ID ( 19011 ) in Source ( MSSQL$MICROSOFTBCM ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: (SpnRegister) : Error 1355.

I paused the Active File monitor to try and do some scans, it turned itself back on. I can't decipher if I'm having a system issue or an infection issue (I run a pretty tight ship, but there are always holes, sadly) or both. Can you give me any insight? Thank you.

Well for one, is there a reason you're using MSSQL?

I'd scan for malware just to be safe. Also, you may want to try reinstalling MSSQL and Adobe.

To be honest, I didn't know I WAS using MSSQL until I started looking into the event viewer. I can't finish a virus scan or a Spybot scan without the computer shutting down, however I posted a Hijackthis log in the Gladiator Security Forum and they tell me that the log is clean. I can figure out how to reinstall Adobe, how do I reinstall MSSQL? From the system disk?

Ok, if you can't finish a scan, then it sounds like malware to me.

You're probally going to need to boot into safe mode, or boot up onto a live cd and mount your windows partition.

I don't think hijack this finds everything, so it's atleast worth a try before reinstalling things.

Well I got into safe mode and checked with Spybot...clean. I couldn't use my NOrton Internet Security in safe mode, don't know why. Also used a Microsoft tool to remove any of the recent malware items (Zolob, Bagle, etc.) Also clean. It really seems to be systemic. I've checked the white papers with Microsoft and while they mention the 19011 Event ID, there's no mention of this particular issue. I am using Outlook 2003 with Business Contact Manager which seems to be associated with this MSSQL event.

Any other ideas? By the way, I realize I'm posting in the wrong forum (this is the one I had bookmarked from another issue) Should I move myself out of here and into the Windows XP forum? :tazz:
