Computer in question is from an employee at work. I always get the hard ones.


Supposedly the PC originally locked up after doing a "firefox" update. She when it restarted it was just showing the hour glass and wouldn't do anything. She said after leaving it unplugged for a half an hour it was fine, but continued after a day of locking up. I got the PC and saw her Firefox version was still 3.00. I uninstalled it and installed new version.

MalwareBytes came up clean. Same with Spybot search and destroy. I tried to run a Gmer Report, but everytime it gets so far then it locks up and automatically restarts (no blue screen). I can get to safe mode, I haven't noticed any browser redirects, and can get to the windows update page and sucessfully update.

I've run a 30 minute hardware test at full load, and system did not crash. It's a core 2 @ 1.86 Ghz with 3.12 GB of ram, but to me it seems a tad sluggish. (voltages check out on PSU) I'm not sure if Gmer crashing is any indication of an infection still looming on the PC, so I wanted to make a post to have someone check my logs before I return the PC to her. It was infected months ago by her son from downloading crap from Frostwire, but was cleaned at that time, but who's to say something still isn't looming (or wasn't a known threat at the time).

I guess you can close the topic unless you see anything out of the ordinary in those logs that I can look out for on future cases. I didn't have but 3 days with this PC, so I backed up all her docs and music and just wrote the drive 3-4 times with 0s and started from scratch. System is performing a lot faster now, and doesn't have issues with Gmer... I begin to think that part of the slowness issue was the fact the IDE cable had cuts in it exposing bare wire to the chasis. Kinda weird when you push on a cable with the PC off and it turns it on!
