I hope there is someone here to help with problems I've been having, I've been searching the internet for hours and hours reading countless forum posts about similar stuff to mine, but my problem seems to be different.
Okay firstly, on some startups I'm getting the error "services.exe terminated unexpectedly etc etc" " System is restarting in 60seconds with an error of 1073741819" This thankfully, isn't happening everytime I start the computer, and sometimes it happens 3-4 times I reboot, then sometimes it's weeks before the error happens again. I've ran a windows search for "services" and the only services.exe's I've found is the one located in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and another one located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache
To help diagnose that problem, I've ran AVG anti-rootkit, with nothing found. However today I ran the anti-rootkit GMER, and It's found an astq.tga which through some google searches I've found is a bad file, which should be removed (I'm not sure how to go about it, though.) I've also found a catchme.sys file, which through more google searches I've found that should also be removed.
PS- I previously had a virus that I got from MSN, which I atleast *think* I removed fully.
PSS-- I'm having fairly common disconnections from the internet, I'm not sure if this is linked in anyway
