    The problem started after I finished printing a PDF file. A blue screen came up with the following: VSP 1284D.sys - address EDF 50F97 base at EDF49000, date stamp 37a32048. Something similar happened before and was related to my Xerox printer drivers. I've uninstalled my drivers and haven't reinstalled them as the problem lessened but still persists.

    I've done the following, in safe mode, but with little success: system restore, CCleaner, registryfix, spybot search and destroy, Ad-Aware, Avast, a-squared, also the PC hard drive and registry were defragged recently.

    I did get the following info after running Avast: logmessenger.dll and USB SIS 163\wlan_163_r105.zip - Installer archive is corrupted......unable to scan

    PC system details:
    Dell 170L, CPU: Intel P4, 2.8 GHz
    OS: Windows XP 2002 PRO SP2
    Explorer version: 6.0.2900.2180
    Internet connection: DSL
    Firewall and security software: Zonealarm, Avast, a-squared anti dialer, Comodo

    Normal data download rate from the net is usually 70 to 100 KB/sec. Now it's 4 to 8 KB/sec.

    Below is the HJT result.....
