    Hello Everyone :)

    I got the above error message out of the blue one day. So I called Dell for help and they said it sounds like it might be a problem regarding spyware??? Anyway, so ever since I received that message, my computer will just freeze up for no reason and ctl alt delete won't do anything and neither will shutting off the tower so I have to unplug it (eek!!). Before it freezes, the mouse starts to get slow and I hear this whirring sound coming from the tower and then it just goes silent. That's when it completely freezes. And at the time, I was only using a word processing application. Can someone please help me? I have to write a paper again for class tomorrow and I don't want my computer to keep freezing up as it makes writing the paper a lot harder than it should be (it's already hard enough!)

    Thanks so so much :rolleyes: Have a lovely night!

    Lets take a look at a log. go to http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
