hello, I have a one-month-old Acer Aspire 1410 11.6" notebook running on Windows 7 64-bit home premium. Twice now, it has encountered a sudden error and shut down improperly.

I have run Bullguard (which found 3 infected files, but only ADMT cookes) and Spybot S&D, which found nothing. I also scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, which found nothing.

However, in looking into it more closely, I found that it is associated with Blue screen, which according to many chat forums and googling, etc, I've looked at, is a potentially serious problem.

I've just scanned and saved a log with Hijackthis. Could someone have a look at it for me, please?

EDIT: HJT log removed, used only in BC forums dealing with malware ~ Hamluis.

Hi welcome to BC
since you have mentioned that you have saved a log, will you post it here? It may help.

Seems to be a problem with DirectX, not malware issue.

I'd run the DX troubleshooter.
