Recently i had a run in with a lot of spyware. I cleaned it all out (i THINK) using pretty much every spyware removal program available thanks to this website
however, i'm still getting repeated errors:
1) I get constant DEP errors (Involving something called "Services and Controller app" being shutdown to "protect my computer"), which result in don't send errors
2) I get this message accompanied by a countdown timer:
This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
The system process WINDOWS\system32\services.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073741674. The system will now shut down and restart.
3) Even though i disabled it, i get the "Restore Active Desktop" screen each time the computer restarts.

Please help! my computer is stuck in a loop of restarting every 2-3 minutes!

It appears you are still infected
