    My brother was using our computer at home (Hewlett Packard Pavillion, Windows ME) and he said he was going to play a game on the computer when as he was looking around the desktop these window errors popped up on a blue screen:

    WINDOWS

    An exception 0E has occured at 0028:C0012D2C in VxD---. This was called from 0028:C1C40746 in VxD---.

    Then when he pushed enter it did this:

    WINDOWS

    An exception 0E has occured at 0028:C00ACA23 in VxD---. This was called from 0028:C1C40746 in VxD---.

    Then when he pushed enter it said ERROR:0E:0028:C2672F08

    Here's my HiJackThis log. Thanks for all the help

    First do this:

    Use System Restore to roll your computer back to a date to before when your computer worked right. Before the error(s) started occurring.

    To start System Restore, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. Or, in the Help and Support main screen, click Use System Restore under Fix a problem.

    Then -

    ***

    You'd be well advised to get AntiVir from http://free-av.com click the Download button; click the red/black AntiVir icon. Then uninstall Mcafee in the Add/Remove Programs control panel and restart your computer. Then back at desktop navigate to where AntiVir was downloaded to and double-click the AntiVir icon to install the excellent free AV I personally use with WinXP and lower versions except Win95. Update and scan with it manually only. Update it every other week-day by getting on-line, right-clicking the red umbrella in your computer's System Tray; Point to Start Internet Update and click the Internet Updater's Start button; check whatever boxes you have to to make agreement and click next in the mostly automated process.

    Close your internet browser, all other programs, doing the below, restart your computer and then generate your Hijack This log.

    Clear your browser's Cache and key folders before you generate a HJT log:

    Click the Start button; Point to Control Panel, select Internet Options; In the box that opens, click the Clear History; Delete Cookies And Delete Files buttons (tick the box next to, 'Delete all off-line content', each in turn; In the box that opens after activating each button, click the OK button. Click OK to close the Internet Options window.

    Clear the contents of the c:\Windows\Cookies; Temporary Internet Files and Temp folders.


    ***

    You've got way too much running at Windows startup.

    Check your available resources by right-clicking My Computer; clicking Properties; Click the Performance tab. Resources available are displayed as percent there at top. Check it when you get done running the System Configuration Utility mentioned below.

    Click the Start button; Run; type 'msconfig', without the quotation marks, in the Run box and click OK; Then click the Startup tab; Uncheck anything you don't need running in the background. For reference on what's not needed running in the background in the System Configuration Utility, view this website first and print out the list:

    http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/Running_items.htm

    It's important that you print out the above mentioned list. The site provides a printer friendly link.

    In the System Configuration Utility (SCU), you can uncheck programs you suspect one at a time and restart your computer. If something doesn't work right, you can always go back into the SCU and re-check it and restart your computer via the Start button. The changes are completely reversible by re-checking an item in SCU or by selecting Normal Startup under the General tab in the SCU and all the programs listed run when Windows starts as it was before you started.

    ***

    You need to be running a firewall like free Sygate from http://download.com - type, sygate, in the Search box, you must be on-line to register Sygate, that is if you're not using a firewalled Router on a Network or, have another third-party firewall like Sygate installed, to protect you and the Internet community from hackers, spammers and terrorist from using your computer for their own illicit needs while you're on-line?


    ***

    Get, install, update and run free Ad-aware (and its HexDump plug-in) from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

    ***

    You might post exactly what programs you have in the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel list box.

    ***

    Go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com or http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm and click the Scan Now link to run a free on-line virus scan.

    This is a basic guide as to what the log means, and some tips on reading it yourself. This should in no way replace asking for help in the forums, but it will still help you somewhat in understanding and modifying the log yourself.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Overview

    Each line in a HijackThis log starts with a section name.

    For practical information, click the section name you need help with:
    R0, R1, R2, R3 - Internet Explorer Start/Search pages URLs
    F0, F1 - Autoloading programs
    N1, N2, N3, N4 - Netscape/Mozilla Start/Search pages URLs
    O1 - Hosts file redirection
    O2 - Browser Helper Objects
    O3 - Internet Explorer toolbars
    O4 - Autoloading programs from Registry
    O5 - IE Options icon not visible in Control Panel
    O6 - IE Options access restricted by Administrator
    O7 - Regedit access restricted by Administrator
    O8 - Extra items in IE right-click menu
    O9 - Extra buttons on main IE button toolbar, or extra items in IE 'Tools' menu
    O10 - Winsock hijacker
    O11 - Extra group in IE 'Advanced Options' window
    O12 - IE plugins
    O13 - IE DefaultPrefix hijack
    O14 - 'Reset Web Settings' hijack
    O15 - Unwanted site in Trusted Zone
    O16 - ActiveX Objects (aka Downloaded Program Files)
    O17 - Lop.com domain hijackers
    O18 - Extra protocols and protocol hijackers
    O19 - User style sheet hijack

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    R0, R1, R2, R3 - IE Start & Search page

    What it looks like:

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page=http://www.google.com/
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL=http://www.google.com/
    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    What to do:
    If you recognize the URL at the end as your homepage or search engine, it's OK. If you don't, check it and have HijackThis fix it.
    For the R3 items, always fix them unless it mentions a program you recognize, like Copernic.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    F0, F1 - Autoloading programs

    What it looks like:
    F0 - system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe Openme.exe
    F1 - win.ini: run=hpfsched

    What to do:
    The F0 items are always bad, so fix them.
    The F1 items are usually very old programs that are safe, so you should find some more info on the filename to see if it's good or bad.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    N1, N2, N3, N4 - Netscape/Mozilla Start & Search page

    What it looks like:
    N1 - Netscape 4: user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "www.google.com"); (C:\Program Files\Netscape\Users\default\prefs.js)
    N2 - Netscape 6: user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.google.com"); (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\defaulto9t1tfl.slt\prefs.js)
    N2 - Netscape 6: user_pref("browser.search.defaultengine", "engine://C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5CNetscape%206%5Csearchplugins%5CSBWeb_02.src"); (C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\defaulto9t1tfl.slt\prefs.js)
    What to do:
    Usually the Netscape and Mozilla homepage and search page are safe. They rarely get hijacked. Should you see an URL you don't recognize as your homepage or search page, have HijackThis fix it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O1 - Hostsfile redirection

    What it looks like:
    O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 auto.search.msn.com
    O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 search.netscape.com
    O1 - Hosts: 216.177.73.139 ieautosearch
    What to do:
    This hijack will redirect the address to the right to the IP address to the left. If the IP does not belong to the address, you will be redirected to a wrong site everytime you enter the address. You can always have HijackThis fix these, unless you knowingly put those lines in your Hosts file.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O2 - Browser Helper Objects

    What it looks like:
    O2 - BHO: Yahoo! Companion BHO - {13F537F0-AF09-11d6-9029-0002B31F9E59} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\YAHOO!\COMPANION\YCOMP5_0_2_4.DLL
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {1A214F62-47A7-4CA3-9D00-95A3965A8B4A} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\POPUP ELIMINATOR\AUTODISPLAY401.DLL (file missing)
    O2 - BHO: MediaLoads Enhanced - {85A702BA-EA8F-4B83-AA07-07A5186ACD7E} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\MEDIALOADS ENHANCED\ME1.DLL
    What to do:
    If you don't directly recognize a Browser Helper Object's name, use TonyK's BHO List to find it by the class ID (CLSID, the number between curly brackets) and see if it's good or bad. In the BHO List, 'X' means spyware and 'L' means safe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O3 - IE toolbars

    What it looks like:
    O3 - Toolbar: &Yahoo! Companion - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\YAHOO!\COMPANION\YCOMP5_0_2_4.DLL
    O3 - Toolbar: Popup Eliminator - {86BCA93E-457B-4054-AFB0-E428DA1563E1} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\POPUP ELIMINATOR\PETOOLBAR401.DLL (file missing)
    O3 - Toolbar: rzillcgthjx - {5996aaf3-5c08-44a9-ac12-1843fd03df0a} - C:\WINDOWS\APPLICATION DATA\CKSTPRLLNQUL.DLL
    What to do:
    If you don't directly recognize a toolbar's name, use TonyK's Toolbar List to find it by the class ID (CLSID, the number between curly brackets) and see if it's good or bad. In the Toolbar List, 'X' means spyware and 'L' means safe.
    If it's not on the list and the name seems a random string of characters and the file is somewhere in a folder named 'Application Data' (like the last one in the examples above), it's definitely bad, and you should have HijackThis fix it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O4 - Autoloading programs from Registry

    What it looks like:
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ScanRegistry] C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SystemTray] SysTray.Exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ccApp] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\ccApp.exe"
    O4 - Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
    What to do:
    Use PacMan's Startup List to find the entry and see if it's good or bad.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O5 - IE Options not visible in Control Panel

    What it looks like:
    O5 - control.ini: inetcpl.cpl=no
    What to do:
    Unless you've knowingly hidden the icon from Control Panel, have HijackThis fix it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O6 - IE Options access restricted by Administrator

    What it looks like:
    O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions present
    What to do:
    Unless you have the Spybot S&D option 'Lock homepage from changes' active, have HijackThis fix this.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O7 - Regedit access restricted by Administrator

    What it looks like:
    O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1
    What to do:
    Always have HijackThis fix this.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O8 - Extra items in IE right-click menu

    What it looks like:
    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Google Search - res://C:\WINDOWS\DOWNLOADED PROGRAM FILES\GOOGLETOOLBAR_EN_1.1.68-DELEON.DLL/cmsearch.html
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Yahoo! Search - file:///C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Common/ycsrch.htm
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Zoom &In - C:\WINDOWS\WEB\zoomin.htm
    O8 - Extra context menu item: Zoom O&ut - C:\WINDOWS\WEB\zoomout.htm
    What to do:
    If you don't recognize the name of the item in the right-click menu in IE, have HijackThis fix it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O9 - Extra buttons on main IE toolbar, or extra items in IE 'Tools' menu

    What it looks like:
    O9 - Extra button: Messenger (HKLM)
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Messenger (HKLM)
    O9 - Extra button: AIM (HKLM)
    What to do:
    If you don't recognize the name of the button or menuitem, have HijackThis fix it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    O10 - Winsock hijackers

    What it looks like:
    O10 - Hijacked Internet access by New.Net
    O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'c:\progra~1\common~2\toolbar\cnmib.dll' missing
    O10 - Unknown file in Winsock LSP: c:\program files\newton knows\vmain.dll
