I have encountered a possible virus on my Windows XP SP3, Home Edition.
My computer is a Dell Inspiron 6000.
Specifically, I receive prompts that my Windows 32 Subsystem & Print Spooler have encountered errors and need to close. This typically happens after 2 minutes following startup, but has recently occured immediately following startup.
As a result, I am unable to print items, and my Wireless connections become disabled.
In addition, I have noticed some Google Redirect-like activity, but this is inconsistent.
Importantly, I am unable to operate my versions of Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.
Furthermore, I am unable to access the Malwarebytes website. However, I went around this and downloaded a new copy of Malwarebytes via CNET. However, the newly installed version would not execute.
This is a tricky one that I am not able to diagnose myself, and especially difficult as my wireless access is now intermittent (likely due to the Windows 32 crashes).
Please let me know what information you need. Please note, however, that I am currently unable to operate Malwarebytes or access their website.
