I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1520 with Vista Home Premium. The computer was an "open box special"
I started to migrate the data and settings over, and shortly threreafter got the BSOD. Sometimes it says Driver_IRQl and other times Driver_power_state.
I called dell, and all hardware checks out. I did Dell's crash analysis, and got a "vsdatant.sys" driver conflict with my Zone Alarm anti-virus. I have reinstalled it three times, and EVERYTIME I try to do a virus scan, I was getting the BSOD, so I dumped it. I have dumped zone alarm anti virus

Here is where it get's fun. I descided to do a chkdsk /F. WHen I do that a blue software screen pops up that says :

In the top bar of the following software box, the path reads:


Trojan-Spy.HTML smitfraud. Killer

Version 3.2

This tool was tailored to remove smitfraud.c and variants

Press any key to continue.

I must have somehow transferred this over? Is this the Virus? I have run Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot.
How do I get this out of CHKDSC??
I am LOST HERE! Thanks.
