    Hello all. I definitely got myself something pretty bad I think. I'll try to explain everything along with an attached Hijack log. I run Vista 32bit.

    A few days ago I noticed random programs erroring out. At first firefox would crash. Then Zune marketplace would crash. I ran AVG and Malware and both came up clean. I didn't think anything of it. Then I started to have some Bsod's.

    One of the restarts I noticed there was a windows security warning. Now my AVG was disabled and no matter how I tried to enable it, nothing would happen. Also, I had trouble starting the scan. When I was able to get the scan running, it would error out or bsod. Also, it seems almost all of these bsod's are different. I've gotten "IRQL not less or equal" to "memory management." It seems to be random.

    So I restarted in safemode and tried to run AVG. It froze. I read to uninstall it using the avgremover and I did. When I tried to reinstall it, it errored out twice before it was sucessful. However, when scanning, it'd just freeze. Also, when I try to just start up AVG, I can't find a place to start it. It's all "AVGUI" and such files but no base application.. if that makes sense.

    I tried to download another anti-virus, like Avast, and that too wouldn't install.

    Please let me know if you need any other information. Thanks in advance!

    EDIT: Whoops, tried to attach log. Here's my Hijack.
