Here, I 've got a massive malware attack months ago, and I tried to remove them with all weapons (Combofix, Malwarebytes, SDFix, Flash Disinfector and sometimes by hand, looking for suspicious files in system32 and deleting them (but it was like drying ice =/). And one of them are really bleeping me off; the malware copies my archives and fill the HDD. And the PC games don't work too. Please help me, soon I'll edit this post with the HijackThis Log

Edit: I forgot to mention the PC formatting, sorry xD

I try to format, and appear a strange blue screen saying that 'Windows had a problem and was turned off to avoid problems in the computer' and giving a memory address. I can't format neither enter in the safe mode (but by running SDFix it returns)

What procedure were you following when you tried to format?

I'm trying to format with the Windows CD. When the dlls finish its loading and before the main menu of installation appear, this screen opens.

Did you delete the existing partition and create a new one when you installed?

Try running chkdsk on the drive.

Do you have access to a different XP CD you could try? Maybe your disk is damaged?

In that case I would try running a memory test:

You should let it run overnight.

Also, do you know the full error message from the blue screen?

'Windows had a problem and was turned off to avoid problems in the computer'

If it's the first time you're having this problem, try rebooting. If the problem persists, try to check this:

Disk space (what is strange, I have 35GB fre in the HDD)

it's like this...

Page Fault in non page area


Etc

yes, it says something about a driver, and gives a strange address like: STOP: 08000000 and something that I forgot

Is your computer still able to boot into Windows?
