Win xp pro ie6
All of a sudden, when I access a link it appears as normal then it appears again.
I tried a system restore however, this problem still exists.
I know it would be a short trip for me but this is driving me crazy. Pls advise ASAP.

I am betting it corrupt files at this point, can you try this

Start < Run < and type sfc /scannow. This will give a blue bar when it goes reboot. This will need the Windows XP CD so have that ready. This will fix all missing or corrupt Windows XP Files.

I had a little chat with two of our malware experts, about if this might be malware related. They told me most likely it is. So can you read You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log and then post in the malware forum, not here.

At different Intervals my system automatically shuts down and restarts.

This is caused by the auto restart setting in XP it you turn it off you should get a [colro=blue]Blue Screen of Death[/color] with a STOP code. I can work out what is causing it from the STOP code.

To turn it off go...
Start < Control Panel < System < Advanced < Startup and recovery
and uncheck "Auto Restart".

When you get a STOP code post it here.

[size=7] Michael.....I ran several virus processes which did not correct my problem. However, after
running Spyware doctor (SD) I do not get the duplication.
Screen of Death has not appeared, maybe Sd resolved the shutdown and restart. If it occurs again I will forward the codt to you.
Really appreciated your help.
Thanks,
John
