Hi: I recently used the fix listed on this site to remove Spy Sheriff, which seems to be successful to a degree. Everything works now, except that when the desktop screen appears, it only appears for 5 to 10 seconds and then flips to the Blue Screen, for 5 or 10 seconds and then back to the desktop screen. With timing, I can get past it if I open just about any program. If I try to go online, it refuses to allow me access. I can get to the sign on screen and once it flips to blue screen. I'm back to square one again. This gem came with Spy Sheriff..Try to keep the fix Really simple, as a computer tech, I make a really awesome dishwasher. Thanks for all your assistance by the way on the spy sheriff removal, it worked quickly.

Regards,

Dave

What does the blue screen say (you can keep it onscreen by presing the pause/break button. Press ctrl/pause-break to resume).

Tell us exactly what it says on it.

Thanks for the reply, I thought that something was funny after the fix, my background was gone (if I only had a brain !!!!. So last night I put a generic IBM/Net Vista background in place, after I posted. This evening after reading your message I powered up.. It now appears that the Desktop is alternating between the background screen and the desktop ...and its every couple of seconds. Evidently the screen was blue due to no background in place. Using the pause/break button has no effect on it at all. It just keeps alternating every few seconds.

Can you access the computer in safe mode? (start tapping F8 as soon as the computer powers on and before Windows starts)

Use safe mode with networking

Run both Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy from safe mode, updating each program’s malware definitions before you scan and allowing both to fix what they find.

If you do not already have these freeware aps installed on your computer, you can get them at the following sites:

*AdAware SE: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Following that that I suggest you post a “HijackThis” log for expert assistance with your malware infection.

Read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum,
here
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions create a HJT log, and POST THE HJT LOG YOU CREATED IN OUR HJT FORUM – not in this forum,
at this link.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/posthjtlog.html
Include the specs for your computer (ie, processor, amount of RAM, brand or motherboard, etc, and briefly describe the problem you are experiencing.)

Unless you are expert at editing the registry, Do not use the Hijack This program to try to fix anything by yourself as even what may seem to be a small mistake can render your operating system inoperable.
Some files when in the correct folder for them may be fine while in another may be malware hiding.


A member of our expert HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance, walking you through the complete repair process.

It may take a period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you in order received as soon as possible.

NOTE
Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT forum thread you created until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team, and do not make any changes to your system (changes, including any attempted repairs, will make your computer to be different than displayed in the log you posted and therefore make your log inaccurate).

The first criteria the HJT Team has when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.
A team member, looking for a new log that requires help might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, post your HJT Log in our HJT Forum (not here in this forum) and wait for a response from a HJT team member.

After you post your log, please do not make any changes to your computer. Discontinue trying to delete anything with any program as changes will make your HJT log obsolete and waste valuable time spent by our HJT experts analyzing the log made innacurate by changes and therefore their plan formulated to address the problems will also be obsolete.

If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a re-request and a link to your HJT log HERE.

Hopefully, this will work for you.
It sounds like you haven't completely disinfected the computer.
