Not sure how much help I'll be able to get on this as my desktop may be too far gone, but here it goes. Every once in a while I check my computer for spyware and various junk (excuse my lack of computer language) that might be slowing it down. I use Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, HiJackThis and, a while back, Norton Anti-Virus. I would find occasional spyware, delete it, and everything would be golden. However, yesterday, after arriving home from University, I was experiencing some major issues.
Upon bootup, I receive "svchost.exe - Application Error", with the option to terminate or debug. It doesn't matter which I choose, moments after bootup the computer will crash and restart. So I bootup in safe mode and run Spybot, Ad-Aware and HJT.
2 problems that Spybot finds have shown up every scan and will not go away. The first is "Nat" which shows 2 registry value entries and the second is Windows Security Center.UpdateDisableNotify.
What HiJackThis finds is what kind of disturbs me (not that I have a huge knowledge of HJT logs). Now bare with me because I'm basing myself mostly on google searches but things found include a twex.exe entry, vozutiso.dll, supekede.dll, dutimode.dll, and yuguvine.dll
Not sure what kind of impact those have on my computers performance, but, as I said, it is unusable outside of safe mode.
Any information will be helpful!
