Hello.

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.

Thanks!

It looks like it could be conflicting hardware. Did you install any new devices on the machine? Do you have any hardware conflict in the device manager?
Theres hope for most, but only patiance for few.

the only hardware element was that i had a webcam plugged in that i used before reformatting, but never reinstalled. it always asked me if i wanted to install it on startup and i always canceled it.

Looking at the device manager i saw it listed as a question mark. anywy, i've now unplugged it. Don't know if that had anything to do with my problem.

other than that there hasn't been any new hardware.

afd.sys is the Ancillary Function Driver for WinSock.

I'd suggest trying WinSockFix (free here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Network...inSockFix.shtml )

Another thing to try is deleting your local area connection, rebooting, then creating a new one.

May I suggest we hold of in giving more fixes until he received his clean bill of health by nvt8. These BSOD may be caused by his infections as per nvt8

that's cool by me. Thanks for all the suggestions, at any rate. I guess i'll check back here once my system's given as clean a bill of health as i can get from the hijack this log dept.

Cheers-

%^*&)Q#)_+*@!!!

I missed that! Thanks for catching it fozzie!

FYI - Working on an infected system before it's cleaned can cause the infection to "morph" into something else - and it will be much more difficult (if not impossible) to effectively clean it!
