Please forgive me, but I purchased an eMachines (AMD Sempron 3100+ legacy) from the local Wal-Mart about a year ago . This computer came with XP Media Center 2005 sp2 and AOL 9.0 pre-installed. Some time back, I had AOL Computer Checkup, and also AOL Safety & Security Center on my desktop. One day, the computer crashed. I tried several times to run the Checkup and SSC, but I got nothing but a white window on either one. I deleted them both and attempted to reload, but the white windows continued. I deleted them both, and downloaded Spybot S&D 1.4 and AOL Anti Virus Shield (powered by Kapersky).
Every so often, I get a screen with nothing but wallpaper, missing icons, and some shadows from the icon characters. It takes a while for me to even reboot. This also happens if I have to go into IE to remove cookies or delete webpages. WTF's going on?
Is there a trojan or virus on here? Has a system file been corrupted? Will I have to reformat, and lose all the programs and everything on my computer?
MOD EDIT: Moved to appropriate forum, merged 2 seperate topics then merged posts (above and below this note) ~ stevealmighty
What exactly does this report mean? This what I get when I run the Spybot 1.4 I mentioned earlier. See this link... here.
