Hi everyone.

I want to thank you in advance for any help I get.

I've been trying to fix/research this problem for 3 days now.
My Dell Lattitude 610 with windows XPsp3 was running perfectly a week ago (March 20, 2011). On March 21, i noticed it was extremely slow and music files were playing choppy, which always indicates some kind of spyware.

I have all the windows security updates installed. I don't download music, roms etc. I regularly defrag and run CClean.

I ran Ad-Aware and it removed 2 infections that I did not get a chance to look at because I restarted my computer once I pressed ok on its UI. The next day, when Avast was updating I got a BSOD. I restarted in safe-mode and ran Avast which turned out to say there was no threat. I ran ad-aware in safe mode as well as malbytes malware remover and got no threats from either.

I thought the malware was gone. I started normally and as soon as I did a routine avast scan it went into BSOD again.

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0X0000000C, 0X00000005, 0X00000001, 0XF73FA5F7)
F73FA5F7 F73F2000, DATE STAMP 4802539d

I downloaded rkill.com and used that. It killed two processes. I DID NOT restart (as the instructions clearly say not to) and I did try and run avast again now that the processes were "killed" and got my bsod again. I rebooted, used rkill and then tried malbytes instead and got no threats. I rebooted and tried to start working again, and avast went to autoupdate and i got bsod again.

*I don't run avast, ad-aware and/or malybytes simultaneously, I run them one after the other, just to be clear.

I tried the same procedure in safe mode and get no threats.
I uninstalled avast completely in safe mode, ran cclean, ran ad-aware, ran malbytes. reinstalled avast from avast.com. tried to virus scan and again bsod.

I finally removed the drive, put it in an external enclosure, and ran avast, then malbytes and get no threats. I ran rkill and re-ran avast, then malbytes and nothing.

I ran a dskcheck (it went through all 5 phases with out noting any errors).

When I ran rkill it did not note any processes were killed.

When I put the drive back in my laptop, it was still slow to start up, and went bsod when i tried to run avast again.

i took the drive out again put it in an enclosure and then proceeded to go through the malware removal guide here.

this is my dds

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
