I seem to be having some serious problems and I have no clue what to do next.
Maybe anyone here knows a solution.
Yesterday I found out about that latest windows leak, I ran some tests and I was infected with it so I downloaded the patch, installed it and hoped for the best.
Because I was working to clean my computer a bit anyway I decided to run ad-aware to scan for any junk on my comp.
I have been using ad-aware since like for ever and never had any problems with it.
The first time I tried running ad-aware it scanned 7k files and then the problem occured.
My windows shut off, I got a bright blue screen wich stated :
STOP: c000021a (onherstelbare systeemfout}
Het systeemproces windows logon process is onverwachts afgebroken, met de status: 0xc0000005 c0x00000000 0x00000000
Het systeem is afgesloten
Since I dont know if any dutch people come here I'll try to translate it to english but I might be a little off
STOP: c000021a (not repairable sytem error}
The system process Windows Logon Process suddenly stopped, with the status: 0xc0000005 c0x00000000 0x00000000
The system is shut-down
The only thing possible after this message is hitting your power button and start up your computer again.
I tried running ad-aware again and to my surprise it scanned up to 105k files.
I thought I was lucky and all went well after reboot but no luck.
I got the same error again.
After a third reboot I started windows in save mode as I have seen it recommended on several topics at this site.
Ad-aware had the same response, this time after scanning 60k files.
Rebooted again to save mode and tried spybot S&D and AVG anti-virus.
Both found some infections, removed them, but the problem still occured.
Next thing I did: Ask a friend for help.
He said: well, Since the problem only occurs when you try to scan with ad-aware. Un-install it and dont use it anymore. You have Spybot S&D and AVG too so why bother.
I thought there might be some sense in it.
So I decided to do nothing and see what happens.
The first thing that changed after another reboot was that the computer does not stop loading anymore.
I had every program I normally use shut-off but the comp keeps loading on.
The next thing I tried was getting another anti spy-ware program.
When I tried to download it I found out my download speed was down to 5kb/s
I tried google to find any solutions to the problem but the next change happenned.
My start page changes everytime I start up IE and when I google something and press a link it redirects me to another search engine wich wont show anything I want.
Even worse, no matter what link I click on google or yahoo it gets me to a site wich claims to be a search-engine but actually is an advertisement page for a enormous pool in my backyard....
And then the final change.
Since this morning I get pop-ups like crazy (888 casino ones and some prices I won because im the 50th million viewer or so)
There is one pop-up I really dont get though, Microsoft office 2000, it wants to install about every 15/20 minutes.
I need to cancel it 4 times before it'll leave and it gets back soon enough again.
There are some other minor changes but thats because of the spyware and I dont think it's worth mentioning.
THINGS I TRIED MYSELF.
*run spybot S&D and AVG in save mode, they both removed some junk but didn't help anything.
*system restore to 15 september, wich was a pretty good idea in my opinion but it didn't do anything either.
*panda scan, found about 400 problems but need to upgrade to pro to get them of. Since I dont have a credit card its rather hard to order it.
I am really desperate here. Anyone have an idea or a possible solution?
Any help would be much apreciated.
