Ntio256.sys Keeps Crashing Me....

So at first my pc (older and running XP home edition) was just crashing on startup. As soon as I hit the login screen or just after, I'd get a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screen that came on along with a memory dump message. After that, nothing helped except to reboot, and then it would happen again. NTIO256.sys is listed in the technical section of the blue screen report, and I know by googling it that it's malware and that Windows is shutting down to keep it from screwing with my machine.

So I rebooted in safe mode, ran spybot and ad-aware and stinger, CWShredder and a few other programs. Now I can reboot and log in, but the machine moves so slowly that it sometimes takes minutes just to open an explorer window. Furthermore, it still crashes whenever I try to open a web browser (I've been using Opera lately, but any browser will crash the machine), so I can't access the net. Every rescue program has to be imported via memory stick or CD.

Any suggestions on how to kill NTIO256.sys?

I'm also getting some crazy messages from my system. It's locked me out of my control panel and program access and when I try to acess them, I get a message: "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." This is aggravating, since I'm logged in as the administrator! Is this part of the same issue or something else?

I apologize for the very long delay. We have a huge backlog of HijackThis Logs to handle and it has been taking us greater time than normal to get caught up. If you are still having a problem, and want us to analyze your information, please post a brand new hijackthis log. If we do not hear back from you within a couple of days we will need to close your topic.

When posting your logs please post them directly into the reply. Do not attach them.

Thank you for your patience.
