so if I serch for say this website and click a result it takes me anywhere BUT this website. however if I c/p the link into the bar or type by hand we're fine.
System32 also "likes" to crash on me. along with "generic host process for win 32 services" which seems to "encounter a problem" after system32 crashes.
as for system 32 it's an "application error"
the instruction at "0x7c923845" referenced memory at "0x00000000". the memory could not be "read"
I noticed in a topic you wanted to know exactly what I was doing when this happened So here it is.
I was sitting in my chair talking to a friend on skype we were talking about her cats and I had just asked her to be quiet because the computer was lagging real bad and suddenly svchost.exe had taken up over 200, k of Memory usage and I said "crap not again!" and there was the error.
this is upsetting and annoying. So I ran hijackthis! smthfraud was ran as well logs are included as attatchments
to make it worse Windows update will not run nor can I visit the windows update website.
this is only the upteenth time this has happened to me! So far I've tried virus scans wth Mcafee spy scans with spybot Malware scans with superantispy and malwarebytes with no change. I am at my wits end.
please help me I want to do this "myself" without having to ask my stepdad for help. It means alot to me to be able to say to him "Look! I fixed the virus all by myself and didn't even run to you!"
