Hello to all...

I'm not sure where to start, I had another thread reagarding the spydawn issue and corrected it. here is the link
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/85071/spy-dawn-issue-and-infection/

My computer keeps rebooting and I'm not sure what I need to do. I can open it in Safe Mode but that is it. Is there somewhere I should start. I have hijackthis logs, and smitfraudfix, as well as AVG and Hostexpert but I don't know where to start. Before I boot up in safemode it is giving me an error of a bad floppy as well as it is prompting me to update my bios. I have don't nothing except run adaware, and AVG. I had 12,000 hits with AVG but I have not made any changes. I'm using XP, and I'm completly lost. I would reformat but I need to save a ton of Data.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

You need to follow all the instructions in the thread you noted above.

Multiple posting on the same problem without following the previous instructions will not fix you any quicker.

This thread is closed.

First, you have not finished working with the HJT team member who is trying to help you. While I realise your frustration right now, anything you do outside of that process can invalidate the data in the log, completely confuse both of you, and by following two sets of instructions in midstream, as it were, can result in conflicts using the removal applications.
For these reasons, I am closing this thread until you have complete the HJT log process.
