I am not sure if this is the place I should post or not. I came here before over a year ago, but I forgot my username.
Basically at that point I had my issue solved (you guys rock!) so I have come back again with a new mystery. I have had a few viruses since then, usually due to my husband using my PC. He's not terribly careful on where or what he clicks. He used it a few weeks ago and since then I have had the "blue screen of death" three times (twice this last week) and the PC will randomly restart, usually when I am not near it and not when any particular program I have started is running.
I have run Spybot S&D and there are always something like 150 files it cannot remove from that first scan ( the temp file scan before it starts up) it does. MBAM has not found anything for a while and Avira has found a few things lately (but I suspect those were false positives, they are quarantined anyway). I just know that things are slow, some of my games will start quickly (as they should some days) but take 20 - 30 minutes to load other days. This is regardless of what I have running, etc... I have pretty much tried to exit out of everything possible and the result is the same. I am running Windows XP (I believe it is SP3). Any help or direction with this would be greatly appreciated!
