My pc earlier decided to Blue screen on the splash screen and restart many times over. I tried starting in safe mode, didnt work, left it for an hour and then safe mode asked if i should continue trying to run sptd.sys which i did (think its a daemon tools driver, of which i've uninstalled daemon tools ages ago and have uninstalled with the daemontools tool thats available after the rootkit scan), i did a sophos rootkit scan and it came up as an unknown hidden file.

My computer is doing some things it never has like deleting most files from a folder when i want it to but not others and then saying it cant delete the folder as it isnt full. It also told me earlier that a drive had been externally altered. Any ideas.

I'm paranoid about rootkits and viruses but this seems to be an xp problem.

Also, it sounds like the pc's running flat out when it isnt on occasions, I used process explorer to check that!
