Repaired above items and deleted from Quarantine; then proceeded to follow instructions on how to prepare before posting to your log. Followed all the steps through the initial scan of Adaware (Adadware 2007). Adaware scan found an item (unfortunately I didn't write down the description, but it had a TAI value of 10!). Fixed the problem w/Adware and restarted PC to rescan with Adaware. Big surprise, when Windows (XP) didn't restart, but I got a screen with starting options (last configuration, last knownworking configuration, safe mode, etc.) Chose last configuration -> Windows XP screen showed and then cursor on black screen, but stopped there. I then shut-off computer and restarted in "last known good configuration" and was able to load through desktop. When I attempted to re-scan with Adware, I received an Error 1810 and a runtime error on Norton. Also received an error message indicating that Adaware was corrupted and that Norton Anitvirus did not load properly or was not found. I then uninstalled Adaware (probably not one of my brightest moments) and attempted to reinstall. Windows Installer started, but then computer shut down. Restarted computer and attempted to scan with Spybot - Spybot found "Win32.VB.atz", which it fixed. We then were successful in reinstalling Adaware and scanning computer, it only found a neglibile item "MRU..." item. I restarted computer and now it shuts itself down when attempting to open Adaware, Spybot, etc. Also we have no internet connection at this time.
What a mess. Please help. Thank you.
