I was using Firefox--surfing reputable sites, I swear!!--when the browser seized up and shut itself down. My whole OS went into the shutdown sequence.

When I rebooted, the computer started up as usual. There was a ton of disk access, but since I rarely reboot my server it's hard to say if that was abnormal. But after about 30 seconds the screen went blank. At the same time the disk stopped accessing. Everything just goes quiet, but the computer is still running.

Now every time I reboot it does this--goes dead within 30 seconds of logging in to my Windows user account.

It'll boot up okay in Safe Mode. Both IE and Firefox are redirected to various ad sites and I can't access any of the online anti-virus scanners.

In safe mode I ran HiJackThis and saw a svchost listing that was the same as someone had posted in their own thread. I followed some of the advice in that thread to run SDFix.

SDFix runs fine in Safe Mode and reboots the machine as expected. When it boots into normal Windows, SDFix then detects TDSServ and asks me to reboot. If I allow the system to reboot into normal mode, SDFix cannot complete its final scan because of the 30-sec crash that now always occurs.

I've tried to run DDS in the 30-secs that I have before the system goes dead but it can't complete in time. Instead I've included the DDS scan that results from running it within Safe Mode.

I've disconnected my data drives and unplugged the machine from my network to isolate it.

Any help would be GREATLY, GREATLY appreciated!!

DDS (Ver_09-01-07.01) - NTFSx86 MINIMAL

Problem resolved.

Luckily I had a recent sys drive backup image and was able to restore from there. The image was clean enough to allow me to run a virus scanner. It did find a few things: A Kryptick.FB trojan and a Agent.ODG virus in my Windows Temp dir. Not sure if that's what triggered my above problem or if it was something that just landed as I was surfing.

Anyway, please disregard this thread.
