Running Windows XP Pro SP3, 4.0GB ram, & 2 250 GB HD set up in RAID to mirror. AVG Internet Security 9.0
Not sure if I have driver/registry or virus/maleware problems, but I know I have problems. The best way to explain would be to start from the beginning.
I went out of town on business for a couple of days. When I returned my wife reported that the PC was running really slow and she kept getting pop-ups from Windows indicating that the firewall had been turned off. I found out that my 16YO son had access to the PC and had visited some shady web sites. Anyhow, I went into AVG to check on the firewall and it was gone. There were no traces of an AVG firewall. When I tried to turn on the windows firewall I would get errors. I managed to uninstall and re-install AVG completely and "THINK" the firewall issue is fixed. However, If I use IExplorer the PC freezes when I close it. Browsing works while your using it but locks up on close. My Windows start-up takes forever when it used to be pretty damn quick. Someone told me that my Windows minidump files point to kwrcypoc.sys & HPZid412.sys but I have no clue.
I have ran scan with MBAM and I use Spy-Bot, Erunt, Spywareblaster, ATF. AVG customer support had me run some things and wanted me to run GMER but I could not get it to complete a scan. At this point AVG has asked to remote in to my PC but I'm not sure they could do anything for my problem as I don't think it's AVG related anymore.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
