Dear knowledgeable folks,

Where do I start, I've taken considerable precautions with my computer and tried to protect it by regularly virus scanning and using adaware frequently however I left my computer in the care of my father a few weeks ago as I had to go to university to study.
When I returned for the xmas holidays I now find a lot of problems that really weren't there before my departure!

I have errorguard issues and DrWatson post mortem debugger thing makes right clicking anything impossible! and on top my computer keeps "physically dumping" some strange blue screen appears and the computer physically dumps!

Now im new to this whole forum thing but I gathered you guys know a lot more about the HijackThis logs?
So im enclosing a copy in the hope that you guys might be able to help resolve the mess created by my dad!

Whats worrying is I have a 10000word law dissertation to write on this computer!

Any help you could give me guys would be most appreciated!
Thanks
D

Looks clean. How is it running?

If you want to make the start-up faster, here are some recommendations.

Run Hijack This.

The following are not necessarily spyware/malware, but we suggest you place a check mark next to the following entries, as these programs may be taking up system resources.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RealTray] C:\Program Files\Real\RealPlayer\RealPlay.exe SYSTEMBOOTHIDEPLAYER
(Description: RealPlayer system tray application. Not necessary. Removing this entry will free up a small amount of system resources.)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NvMediaCenter] RUNDLL32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\System32\NvMcTray.dll,NvTaskbarInit

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [PrinTray] C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\printray.exe
(Description: Lexmark/Compaq printer icon in the System Tray for quick access. Not required - uncheck via Printer configuration rather than MSCONFIG. See also LexmarkPrintray and CompaqPrinTray. Removing this will free up some system resources. )
