I have ran several scans using McAfee Virus Scan and Internet Security, as well as Exterminate-It and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and Ad-aware. They all came up clean except for a couple of tracking cookies.
The main problem I am having is staying connected to the Internet with my wireless adapter. After a random amount of time, sometime between 2 minutes and an hour, web pages will stop opening, and I cannot get to anywhere on the internet even though it says I am still connected. I end up having to right-click on the Network Connection Status icon in my tooltray and select repair to get it to work again.
Recent error messages similar to what i had on my desktop before it's big meltdown have popped up too..
Event ID: 26
Application popup: iexplore.exe
Application Error : The instruction at "0x040d6c78" referenced memory at "0x0410473c". The memory could not be "read".
This normally happens when closing IE after making some changes to options.
Also, if i right click a folder or my computer icon and click explore, the explorer window will open with no toolbars, icons or menu-bar ( the one that says File - Edit - View etc ). IF i double-click the icon explorer opens up normally with all the toolbars and menus in the right place.
And the most annoying thing is the time and date never stay corrext. I can reset the date and time and within 2 hours it will be wrong again. It's like it keeps track of minutes, but not the hour.
I have attached the HiJackThis log to this note, if someone could check it and make sure my system is clean or not. There are a couple of suspicious looking items to me, but havent had much experience with that program.
PS i think some of the problem may be caused by overheating as NHC software shows processor running at 90C. Can someone check the attached file for other problems. thanks
