I just recently had help from Gringo to fix a malware attack, and I felt like I was squared away. Since then I have updated Java, my chipset drivers and video card drivers, so I would have thought that everything would be working perfectly. One thing I did learn from that experience, however, was that there are excellent sites out there like bleeping computer who really do help. So if anyone has any ideas what could be causing this, I would be grateful for any suggestions. Thanks in advance,
I am no help, but just stopped by to say I have the same problem with computer crashing intermittently while viewing youtube videos. After several 'serious error' messages from Windows (Windows XP), I now cannot get my computer to start in normal mode. Have no idea if these things are all connected to an email link that I clicked on "your youtube video has been approved" (of course I had not created any youtube video so clicked on it without thinking first and it took me to a web page selling Viagra). After clicking on that link, I noticed that anytime I watched youtube videos, my computer crashed. Finally it crashed and I could not get Windows started in normal mode afterwards.
I am now searching for malware (came back to check on a thread I started in virus forum). I can only run my computer in safe mode. I will post back if I find a solution.
