Good afternoon,
I have been directed through the same site to post here with my problems.

I am new to this site and the forum....I am hoping someone can help me with my computer issues....the other personal issues I have are far beyond help or medication!

I am running Windows XP Pro SP3 on a Dell system (optiplex 320) that was my old work machine (prior to the company going bankrupt...my severance package I guess). It was a networked machine and I have had it at home as a home computer for a year now (no home network) and it has been operating fine until just recently. Started when I attempted to run a virus scan using Super Antispyware....system would give the Blue Screen of death telling me there was a page fault on a non paged area. I updated the BIOS and still the probelms. I started to experience other operational problems with other software. Internet was no longer functional with either IE or Firefox. I started to look at Rootkit virus software and ran several programs to no avail. Things started to look up when I ran RegRun and it was identifying some of the .exe files that were infected. It appeared to have fixed things and everything went back to normal....well for a few days. I now have an issue when I connect to the internet as the system will re-boot shortly after connecting. I ran a winsock fix that helped restore my internet connection that was no longer available as the driver was not operating.....it did nothing for the reboot problem.....then tryed replacing userinit.exe as it was an infected file.....that enabled me to now run Super Antispyware and not get a blue screen. I can no longer run this program again....I have lost m firewall protection and cannot reactivate it so I am shutting off my modem between emails. The internet still causes the machine to re-boot (has not within the past hour or so so thing are slightly better than yesterday). I am trying to think if I have missed any other things that I have attempted to do........I have followed some other advice to no avail....defrag!!!....checkdisk......numerous other spyware programs (Malware anti malware, Unhackme, Regcure, Spybot, CC Cleaner and a few that do not come to mind) that have done nothing other than tell me the machine was fine. I think the virus came with a NCH piece of downloaded software for converting .avi files. Hope someone can help. I have attached the DDR scan file as directed.
Thank you so very much in advance for your help.

P.S. You will note via. the attached that I was a naughty user and used Combofix...this was from a co-workers helping hand....Yes I know I should have slapped it!!!!!!
