Hello,
I am running windows media center xp sometimes I am blocked from accessing my desktop items, when following that I try to run ad-aware, it does not load or freezes up completely. When I try to close it it will not respond. The taskmanager will not respond after that happens. On my start menu no Icons appear only text. When I try to log out It comes to a screen that asks me for a password. i have no passwork, when I click ok it says computer is locked and takes me to a completely blue screen with a box in the middle, with a smaller box with a misporportioned "X" as if to close program, also in said box there is a red circle with a white x inside. When I tried to get on the computer a few hours later all log on icons were set differently and I was denied access to any account, it said it would open a temporary account in 30 seconds, it than counted down.
I have run Listed products in an attempt to remedy this problem.

Earthlink protection control center
ad-aware se personal
spybot search and destroy
and smithfraudfix.exe (in safe mode)(it took antiverminister off of my computer successfully)

Thank you,
Henry Krinkle

also, the only way to get out of the blue screen is to restart the computer,
and on the black screen that asks for a password, logging out is not an option.

I did as you suggested,
the first scan site could not remove what it found
the second site removed some stuff but problem persists
