Hi there,
First of,my problem started few days ago when it suddenly it just randomly off,it already off then auto restart more than 10 times per day!
And I decided to run a full scan (using NOD32) and it found no threat at all.Then I browse the web and 10 minutes later,it restart again and this time,my task manager cannot start up!
It refuse too!
And that make me wonder that my computer have a virus that possible trying to make it's evil plan and fool my anti virus :thumbsup:

BTW,I'm using Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2
Btw,the error that came for the task manager changed..
Currently,it said "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).Click OK to terminate the application.
And,if it helps,I have a Windows XP Pro cd but it's service pack 3
I will gladly await for any replies :D

Hello see if you can run this scan.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Finally,a success!After getting very desparate ofthe auto reboot,I set it to the date few days ago when I remove my anti virus for another one,the auto reboot stop!
And,if you ask why I change,The one that I use,Kaspersky,said that my license key is blacklist (???) so I dig out my NOD32 box and install it,but since the auto reboot happened after a day or two I didn't think it was the cause.
So,at the moment,I running online without protection(expect Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware)

Just asking,why NOD32 cause my computer a auto reboot?That last I use it,it never do that.

Meanwhile,I try to find a free anti virus that would hog down my computer,lol
