Operating System: Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3
The PC is 4 years old, so I've been wondering when the hard drive will die. For the past few days, the system opens multiple windows while on the Web and freezes from time to time.
I ran the following programs in Safe Mode:
Dr. Web - Cure It!
Nothing much found, just a few adware problems.
The machine boots up normally but after awhile the multiple windows open, programs randomly start up, and crashes happen all over again.
I ran HiJack This which shows Stopzilla as an entry and I cannot get rid of it by deleting it in the Program Files.
Should I post the HiJack This scan file and someone could take a look at it? Anything else I should try? All my files are backed up, so I could reinstall XP if necessary.
