On January 4th, I had a few viruses I think I had "Trojan DNSChanger" and "Rogue.Component/Trace". I cleaned it and deleted the quarantined and rebooted as I was prompted using MBAM and Super anti-spyware. I used my machine for a few hours and all was fine. I deleted all restored points and created a new one. Then I got this Bluescreen
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xB14C7B3A, 0xAE51E788, 0x00000000)
I ran “clean disk” then defragmented my C drive (I think this caused the problem). I think I continued to use my machine for a bit. Then I shut it down for the night. The next day I booted it up and it continues to crash upon boot up.
It will reboot anywhere from 1 second into booting up, all the way up to actually booting into windows fine and then rebooting.
I posted my issues in these posts and was sent to the AII forum and HJT. I managed to get it booted into windows normal mode and worked with the HJT team and I have been declared clean in the HiJack This forum. So I don’t think this is virus related, I think it’s more to do with the defrag.
I have been working with the HJT team for several days and have rebooted a few times and it comes up fine. I shut down last night and the today I turned my machine on and I can’t get booted up. Same thing, It will reboot anywhere from 1 second into booting up, sometimes I get to the black screen with the Windows logo then it reboots.
Seams once I get booted up into windows everything works fine. I have only seen the blue screen once.
Here is a history of everything that has been done since Jan 5th.
I had started a post here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/192515/stop-0x0000008e-blue-screen/
The thread was moved to the AII then the HJT thread where I was helpped by Billy 3. He managed to clean up all viruses and he was very helpful, but I am still having the intermittent and continual re-boot issue. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/195096/roguecomponenttrace-trojan-dnschanger/
Looking for advise on how to proceed.
