I'm not sure if my problems are caused by spyware, viruses, or trojans but I believe my computer to be infected because of some small things and it crashes with a blue screen covered in white code. I would copy and paste the code, but the only thing I am able to do once it occurs is press the restart button on my computer which is not a good sign. I have turned off the option in Control Panel that would restart my computer. The small things are problems such as Windows Explorer and the Registry Editor resetting every time my computer does. (For example, the programs I delete from Run in the registry editor return after a restart, and various quicklaunches disappear).

Thanks,
SlimTim10

No offense taken, I was told to post my problem here after my HijackThis problem was solved. I have most of those programs and use them on a regular basis. Thanks anyway.

Did you actually have a malware specialist look at your posted HJT log or did you just do the things they told you to do in the 'You Must Read This Before Posting A HiJackThis Log' post?

I had a specialist look at my log, of course. According to him, there are no problems with it.

Also, post the exact message that appears, the error that is all in caps like: PAGED_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA . The error will be in this format when you get the blue screen with white text.

Yes, but I can't get the message. When the blue screen appears, there is only the blue screen. It has white code (text) written all over it, but by this point I can only restart my computer (with the restart button). Everything else has been shut down when it comes up.

Hi SlimTim10...

Try this....

REPAIR your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can.

You can always write down the error message in the format I described above. No you don't need to write it all down, just the message that is in all caps with the words seperated by a '_'

its a stop code. they're almost always due to a driver problem. hijack this will not fix that for you. all you can do is write it down and then refer to this topic to see what it's related to. These are only the common ones. there's also a comprehensive microsoft knowledge base article about them

you can still boot in safe mode usually.

Ah thanks, Thef0rce. I think it is a stop code. I'll look for the line that begins with Stop and write it down next time it crashes.
