Attached, is a photo of a blue screen that pops up on my computer occasionally after it shuts down spontaneously. It started months ago…but only happened like once every three months, and never after making any significant changes to my system…so I just restarted my computer and kept moving. But this last week it’s happened three times.
I’m actually getting some assistance in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/85082/trojan-dnete-trojanbankash-haxdoorfam-goldunfam-antivirus-gold-hotwebfinderwinbrume/
I thought this blue screen shutdown might have something to do with my other problems so I mentioned it there, and the person helping me there suggested I bring it here.
I should mention that many months back I reformatted my system and had a computer buddy help me. He’s an expert, but our friendship has dissolved, which is why I’m here now. At the time, I had somehow lost my original XP system disks, so he used his professional version to set up my system. After that I started getting notifications that my windows system may not be genuine—which of course it’s not, now—but Microsoft was kind and sent me a one-time backup of my xp system disks. I still have not resolved the error, though, since it would mean reformatting everything again—which would not only be a pain in the ass…but would leave me without some software that my ex-buddy previously hooked me up with.
I don’t know if any of that is at all useful info for this situation, but I figured I better mention it just in case.
If you can help me out with this or confirm whether or not it’s even something I need to be concerned about [besides the obvious inconvenience of the system shutdown] I’d greatly appreciate it.
