All of a sudden yesterday my computer went hay-wire on my. I wasn't even doing anything out of the ordinary.
My first intial reaction was to run Hijack This, but it won't load for some reason. It'll pop up in my task manager under tasks and processes, but it shows up as not responding, but the program itself never shows up. Firefox, my usual browser of choice, continues to crash constantly now as well. Also, no online virus scans will work for me either, as something is preventing Active X (or anything) from downloading, both on IE and FFox. I luckily already had Ewido, ran that, and that only showed up with a bunch of cookies, which I removed. NAV ran, and I removed everything that it came up with as well (A0113183.exe A0113181.exe, bnedkmla.exe, and dmfte.exe) Spybot ran, nothing out of the ordinary was found there. CWShredder only found Msconfig (?) and I managed to download and run the Pepi coolwebsearch smartkiller, which said I didn't have the file on my comp in the first place.
I noticed a few wierd things in the processes tab...I'm not sure how many SVCHOST's there are supposed to be running at any time, I always thought it was three, one for system, one for user, and one for local network...I have 4, two system ones, and one eats up A LOT of memory compared to the other one. THe other odd thing I noticed is something called dumprep.exe, which seems to spawn itself as it shows up more than once, I killed it and the host program before, but to no avail.
Also, upon start up (and this may have NOTHING to do with anything else) I get an error message reading cslaf.exe The NTVDM CPU has encounterd and illegal instruction. CS:0549 IP:037f OP:2e 63 6f 6d 22 choose close to terminate the application. IF I choose ignore instead, I get quite a few of the same error message popping up, but with the CS: etc. numbers changing. On this current restart, I've just left the window alone and haven't clicked on anything else, so if for some reason this IS relevant, I can give the additional error messages in a reply post.
Lastly, I tried to just restart windows in safe mode, but it would always reboot it self before completing the job. It's say at the bottom of the DOS prompt while loading "press ESC to not load d347bus.sys" I ignored this the first time, and the computer rebooted before going any farther...thought it was a fluke, so I tried it again...still nothing...lastly I hit ESC went prompted, and it still rebooted on me.
I've had nasty things get on my comp before, but nothing at all like this, and I'm completely stumped at the moment. Thanks in advance for the help!
