Hi, I've posted a while ago, here's a recap, I ran hijackthis, S&D, Avira, AdAware, SpywareBlaster, SuperAntiSpyware TrojanREmover and pretty much every free software available. Adaware keeps finding it, but can't take it out. The computer used to slow down a lot, right now its ok, but I'm still getting popups even thought firewall and everything else is on.... although the pages are white, shows the addresses but no content. From time to time it says its run out of virtual memory. There's a lot of crap running on startup, I've gone in to stop some manually, so that helped the slowing down problem .But there's still unnecessary stuff running.

Tried 4 or 5 top leading Virtu Monde removers, they don't even detect it, let alone fix it. My registry won't let me restart to an earlier checkpoint. I can't backup my whole computer b/c I'm having problems with the suggested software on this site. So Someone told me to run DrWebit and post the log here. I would VERY much appreciate anyhelp!

The log is VERY long, it's not letting me paste, is there a way to attach the whole thing or is only one part of it necessary?

Run a scan with SUPERAntiSpyware in Safe Mode and post the log.

Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

i don't have the cd, I can get it tomorrow, I did HP recovery. Some minor programs dont work, but at least all the files are there. It still wont start normally or let me go to safe mode, ive tried making 2 boot cds they dont work. But it only let me do F10 for the restore, and then somehow from there it started normally. otherwise i had to turn on /shut down manually 3 or 4 times for it to even allow the f10 (hope this makes sense!)

Right now im going to keep it on for a while and do any sort of fix i can before trying to restart it. Right now scanning with Kaspersky, Superantispyware wont run or let me reinstall without a restart and im afraid to. Any ideas on fixing disk errors that would take care of the startup? (something not too advanced pls)

oh the screen randomly flickers or goes black, until i tap the windows button. this is driving me nuts

and thank you very much for reading and trying to help

You can try this - but it will require a restart.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.
