First, thank you.
Second, if this isn't the best forum/site for this help - I'd love some redirection to the appropriate place.
Updated my Dimension 8400 with HDs, RAM, F/X and Wifi PCI card recently. There was some intermittently spyware issues before the upgrade, and they continued after - soon after I made the mistake of browsing with IE8 before it was fully patched and got hit bad. After lots of debugging, I'm still running into occasional BSODs --
I get intermittent crashes -
STOP 0x0000000a (? , 0x00000002 , ? , ?)
STOP 0x0000008E (0xC0000005,?,?,?) [implied in the old Rustock rootkit]
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA in ntfs.sys
I thought it was a H/W issue, but Memtest works fine, and Dell Diagnostics gave the thumbs up. I've had the issue where I couldn't download large files and have them come down w/o a problem - could be an HD controller issue or a virus, so again I'm confused.
Ran MBAM till I turned blue, it isn't finding anything anymore.
Ran most of the webscanners - the system crashes before they complete.
Dr. Web boot disk didn't find anything.
I've scanned my system with the Kapersky Boot Disk while it's been updated. It seemed to work fine, but it wouldn't report what files were damaged and later reported that the definitions were corrupted.
I can't install applications - in Safe Mode it says that the permission has been disabled, and in regular mode, files don't seem to pass CRC checks.
I'm at a loss of what to do. If it's a H/W problem, I can't identify the component, and if it's a Virus, it's pretty damn hard to find.
While running MBAM, got another error.
0x00000050 (xE174EC60, x00000001, x80551AE2, x00000001)
The machine will operate fine for hours and hours and days unless I do some sort of Spyware scan, at which point it dies. (Of course, the scan might be more intensive than other things I'm doing, so not sure that's a smoking gun.)
