So, for the past 2 weeks about, my computer has been freezing on me. The mouse clicker stops in the middle of the screen, keyboard won't respond and control alt delete won't do it either. It would happen about 4 times a day at first. Okay, so that got me a little worried. Then, it starts happening more frequently, I browse a few forums, make a few posts. Some people say it could be viruses, some say hardware. Whatever. For the past two days now, it has really been freezing on me. This morning I woke up, and it wouldn't go on, it would sat on black screen forever when I booted it up(it froze overnight), or get to the windows screen and freeze instantaneoulsy. I scan the hell out of this lump of bleep. With every scanner possible. With avg I get the same weirdo tracking cookies everytime (do they ever leave?). Some scanners will show that I am infected, others no sign. I've got some malware wipe and some other crap with spybot. I ran xclean and got some very alarming trojans called prutect and spyagent.ak. Hijackthis does not seem to show any trace of these things. Obviously I have something and its hiding, I just don't know what to do to find it and destroy it. I am not that good with computers, I do what I can though. i just really do not feel safe using this computer, although i need to use it. Its giving me a an hour and a half of relief so far. Thats how long it hasn't frozen. It should be up to its tricks in no time though. I would really appreciate any help that can be given.

Hello Captaintripps,

I see you have a HJT log posted in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

You shouldn't make any changes to your system, while your HJT log is posted, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

I'm closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team.
If, after your log has been cleaned, you still need help, please PM a Moderator and we will re-open this topic.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
