For last two weeks I've been having bluescreen crashes (twice a day), IE8 redirects, slow startups etc...I have installed and run repeatedly ccleaner, malwarebytes, super antispyware, Vipre, RUbotted (shows "botnet malware cannot be removed). HijackThis scan comes up with message (not posting log)
For some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts file. If any hijacked domains are in this file, HijackThis may NOT be able to fix this.
If that happens, you need to edit the file yourself. To do this, click Start, Run and type:
notepad C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
and press Enter. Find the line(s) HijackThis reports and delete them. Save the file as 'hosts.' (with quotes), and reboot.
For Vista: simply, exit HijackThis, right click on the HijackThis icon, choose 'Run as administrator'.

Last straw was having cold call from someone saying they knew I had a problem and they could help if I subscribed to My PC Care.

Please advise. Thanks

P.S. I posted in Am I Hacked because someone called me out of the Blue with knowledge of my problem and tried to sell me a fix. I think I am both Hacked and Infected. Also I didn't mention that I can't get Microsoft Updates to work so I can't download the 14 fixes they are recomending. I downloaded DDS but the scan comes out all gobbledy gook so I think my malware is preventing these scans eg. MalB, SAS, CC, etc.. mentioned above from running correctly. I just don't know but desperately need help.

Thank You.

Please download BlueScreenView to your Desktop.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
When scanning is done, go to Edit>Select All.
Go to File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.
