First of all, thank you in advance for your awesome site and work.
I've been having issues with my computer. Out of nowhere, my computer started to freeze, and I got this error saying "This system is shutting down nt authority C://windows/system32/services.exe" code 1073741819. On my taskbar, where the clock is, It gave me a big red (x) button saying that my computer is infected, and when I would click on the (x), it would give me a pop up. Then my background disappeared, and there was a sign saying my computer is infected, and may be a trojan. The automatic shutdown would then show up. I could not go to task manager or change anything because it told me that I would need administrative powers to change things. I just restarted my computer to see if it would go away, but it was the same thing. At startup, however, I was asked to log in as admin OR myself, which never happened before this fiasco.
I was browsing through the forum and saw some people with similar problems, so I did do the hijack and combofix. I think (hope) it is gone, but my computer is still slow, and my internet's been chippy. I have the logs for the hijack and combofix (which deleted a whole bunch of stuff) if you would like me to post. (oh darn, I just realized that I shouldn't have done combofix without assistance. I just followed the other posts' instructions. I hope I did not do any harm. =T)
I'm not computer savvy, so what I've wrote may be confusing, but I would appreciate any help you can bring. Thank you guys again for your help!
