    My computer had been acting very funny lately. I thought I might have gotten a

    virus, so I insatlled McAfee trial version (I know I know - get anti-virus

    software already) but every time I ran it, or Seek & Destroy it flickered to a

    blue screen with a message like:

    STOP: 0x0000007F (0x00000008, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP
    Beginning Dump of Physical Memory

    It's always something like that but not usually the same exact. I ran hijack

    this - and this is what the log gives me:

    I would very much appreciate any help, and would love my computer to stop running

    so slow and restarting all the time. Thanks.

    If your computer is running slowly, it might be a virus, if it's restarting all the time, and it wasn't acting like this before it's probably a virsus, if your anti-virus program crashes u have a mighty big problem on your hands.
    Though if it is a virus, I garantee, the following will help:
    1st: Run housecall , if it tells u that you have a virus, you should do the following:
    Update your trial version of mcafee (download the latest virus pattern files & program files), start windows in safe mode and scan. It will find the virus and kill it.
    If it crashes when you update, start widnows in safe mode with networking, and update it from there.

    If housecall won't find anything, update your anti virus and scan your PC i nsafe mode anyway.

    If that won't turn up any virsues, then it's obviously something else.
    It might be software that you have installed recently, might be hardware and it might be a windows update.

    The STOP 7F message is more commonly caused by hardware defects.

    I would first suspect RAM. If its a high address bit thats flakey, it may only show up on memory intensive applications.

    There are also known causes with some Symantec AV programs and specific PC systems. If you search Google for

    STOP: 0x0000007F UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP

    And look for any Symantec and Microsoft hits, you may get further.

    If you have 2 RAM chips try removing one at a time. As long as what remains is at least 128 MB. That may eliminate it as a problem.
