I have a laptop running XP Home, and recently the start up has been ridiculously slow. Also, I get this message saying "Windows has encountered a serious error (what else is new?!) and will now shut down this ______ (blank) program." The thing is that there is a blank space (see quoted text) where it's supposed to say what program, and there is literally nothing there. IT does however, give me the shut down button.
On the regular, when I have two or three windows open, it will give me a nice BLUE SCREEN that says something about a "bad_spool_caller". I have no clue that is.
I have run housecall and it says I have a worm called WORM_VB.BA.
Housecall says "This worm is uncleanable, do you want to delete it?" Duh, I click yes. It tells me it has deleted it, but when I run housecall again, it says it's still there, and the cycle goes on.
How do I get rid of this?
My programs have been shutting down left and right because of "system errors".
What can I possibly do? (Jeeebus, saaave uusss....)
