Hello, so about a month or two ago I removed a real nasty rootkit I got from a torrent (silly me, trusted downloaders only!).

Anyways, all has been fine, no issues, i'm very anal about keeping my computer clean.

Today however, I was browsing facebook, and my entire computer froze. I hit the hard reset button on the outside of my case, which did nothing for about 15 seconds and then my computer shut off instantly. No reboot, either. Thinking, hmm, this is suspicious, maybe it's a hardware problem -- I went to my event viewer, and I found nothing hardware related, no errors, warnings, or critical messages other than the unexpected shutdown, and this little puppy.

Warning - Event ID 11 - Wininit
Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications.

So I have no idea if this is being caused by my antivirus? (Currently running Avast free, as well as MBAE free, and SAS free)

I couldn't find anything recent with relevance to my situation, so I figured after years of lurking these forums, i'd reach out to you guys.

Is this harmless? Cause by my antivirus? Or should I be concerned?

I have a clean flash drive with all kinds of fun virus removal tools ready to go, just say the word.

Thanks for your time and consideration!
