My computer unexpectedly restarts and I cannot tell if it is infected.
It seems to restart on the following occasions:
- When I close AVG results window after a time-consuming scan
- When I close Firefox window after long time surfing (sometimes).

It seems that computer becomes unstable after hours of use so I suspect it's infected because I found this system startup:
"cmd.exe /C rundll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSectionEx nLite.inf,C,,4,N"
(I do not have any nLite software)

I followed the steps in "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log" but system restarted when scanned with the "Kaspersky Online Scanner" (step 5).
After repeating the scan Kaspersky found nothing.
I could not complete step 6 "Deckard's System Scanner (DSS)" because the dss.exe
crashed with the message:
AppName: dss.exe AppVer: ModName: ntdll.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2180 Offset: 00010f29

Any help is welcomed.

I have more info about the system but I try to keep my first post sort.
