Sunday my PC crashed something fierce to where I had to wipe the OS and reinstall the XP. 

After reinstalling, and a few programs, someone recommended AVG2013 FREE for a scanner and virus protection. 

Since then, 9 times out of 10 my PC won't fully boot. It sticks on the desktop background and remains dead. The only time it seems to get to work is if I go into safe mode and then restart. 

The kicker is I do have a few programs that are essential to my craft that regrettably are cracked programs but they never gave me a problem before. I ran AVG's addon's and it appears I might have a very screwed up registry but since I'm not an expert I cannot tell if something nasty is embedded in my PC or something else is wrong. 

You guys have been helpful before so I figured I would run some tests with you guys, see if I have a bad rootkit I'm unaware of, or something else? Or maybe a different section would work on this, I don't know. So let me know what to do next. Thanks!

Hello, please first run these.


Please Download TDSSkiller
Launch it.
Click on change parameters-Select TDLFS file system
Click on "Scan".
Please post the LOG report(log file should be in your C drive)
Do not change the default options on scan results.




Now I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan

  • Hold down Control and click on this link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
  • Click the esetonlinebtn.png  button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
  • Check "YES, I accept the Terms of Use."
  • Click the Start button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, click List Threats
  • Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Click the Back button.
  • Click the Finish button.

NOTE:Sometimes if ESET finds no infections it will not create a log.
