    Problem: everytime i boot my computer normally, about 10 seconds after it loads up, it shuts down and restarts itself... continuously, it won't stop.

    What I think it is: I went to a keygen site to get a keygen for a mp3 ringtone program for my new palmOS phone... downloaded it, soon as i clicked the .exe i knew it was wrong, opened slow, so i shut down my computer before it could install anything.. now in my msconfig -> startup tab, there is a line i didnt see before

    the line:
    "%systemroot%/system32/dumprep 0 -k"

    as well as:
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Nick\Local Settings\Application Data\945d0efe.exe"
    and
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\945d0efe.exe"

    also, some program named Cowabanga ( cowabanga.exe ) installed itself.

    even when i disable these, they re-enable themselves and startup again

    Mcafee virus scan picks up nothing
    Spybot / Ad-aware both pick up nothing

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe:

    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Scroll down to the download section

    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    You have no active AntiVirus!

    Get the free AVG 7 install it, check for updates and run a full scan

    AVG 7 - http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/
    ==========================
    You should enable everything in msconfig so we can see what is going on
    =====================
    Fix this with hijack

    O16 - DPF: {97B79133-88F0-45F0-8D57-0F2EF27D9C66} - http://85.255.114.166/1/rdgUS2404.exe
    =====================
    Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder
    =====================
    Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ (W2K/XP Only)
    · Install ewido.
    · Run the application
    · Click on scanner
    · Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
    · When the scan is finished, Set all items to delete
    · Apply all actions
    · look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
    · Save the report to your C: Drive
    This will take some time to run!
    RE-Boot
    Post that log and a new HiJack log
