For some time I've been dealing with an apparent virus. My computer will suddenly crash, and I get a blue screen with a message:
**STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFC1A8E8,0x00000000,0x80579F0B,0x00000000)
Along with some other information asking about recently installed hardware (there is none) and contacting my system administrator.
When I reboot my computer, it typically locks up, with the "hourglass" icon displaying continuously. The only way that I have discovered to get around this is to activate Spyware Doctor immediately on the bootup. An "Intelliscan" always find a Trojan agent at the location below:
C:\Documents & Settings\Me\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\bestwiner.stt
On "Fix checked", Spyware Doctor indicates that it has been removed. However, another scan run immediately finds the same Trojan.
A full scan finds the same agent, along with two other apparently malware products.
I've seen your Combofix referenced as a possible way of getting rid of this thing. Can you help me?
