All my games (rise of nations,FSX,black and white) are minimizing on me every 2-15 min. Even when I try to watch a you tube video in full screen it will minimize the full screen window down to a full screen firefox but small vid veiw. As I type this I continue to have to click on the window every so often just to keep the blinking cursor so I can type (very frustruating!! as I type aprox 0.2/wpm!!!)

recently I have been getting those annoying adds that say "Congratulations, you have been selected to recieve a new laptop(or Wii (like they could find one!!))", while flying on FSX. I quickly hit the windows key to see if something poped up but there is nothing there. Just today I have been getting bits of music while playing a game and I still cant see anything.

I borrowed a ext hdd from a friend (that may have used some illegal methods of downloading) and copied some music, videos and programs to my computer. This was some time before the problem started but i figured i could have been infected from this

I have searched and tried many different things to fix this issue. here is what Ive done...
- Installed Spybot and ran the scan. Found 61 spyware apps. I clicked remove and 60 were sucsessfully removed while one was unable to be removed. It asked me to restart the computer. I did and it spybot ran a 30 min scan but didnt tell me if it had removed it.
- Installed Ad-Aware and ran the scan. Adaware found 140+ (walked away) infections. when it finished it had listed 1 trojan and 3 malware problems which I removed. Again one was unable to be removed until I restarted the computer. so I restarted and have no Idea if its gone.

Im running XP btw.

Updated the hijack log above, after another failed attempt. I think I'm loosing this battle, More pop up sounds and strange behavior of my computer. After running a prevx scan my background picture went blank and just for a second my task bar went away. My heart sank for a second but the task bar came back instantly, the background pic did not. Similar to a normal start up a few icons appeared in the right of the task bar. these icons are normal (i think) when I start the computer, just a camera icon and a printer icon which i usually close.
Can someone please help?

Well about an hour after my last post the computer crashed hard. Im not too sure what happened since I had started a Ad-Aware scan again and left it to do its thing. When i came back to it a couple hours later the computer was running thtough a loop of trying to restart. I had a off colored blue screen saying something about a error with sofware/hardware. I attempted to start in safe mode but it went right back to the same loop of trying to start over and over again. A friend of mine has the computer now and is going to format the hard drive and re-install the os for me. once again I loose all my music and pictures, last time was because I knocked over my ext hard drive. This time I may never know. The thought crossed my mind to simply haul the tower monitor and speakers out to the dumpster and never have anything to do with computers again, but seeing how I work in the semi conductor feild I fear I have no choice...
This is beggining to feel like a diary of my computer issues....
