:confused:
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 :mad: 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....)

First drop the language it is not needed!

Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite http://www.ewido.net/en/download/ (W2K/XP Only)
· Install ewido.
· During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
· Launch ewido
· It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
· On the left side of the main screen click update
· Click on Start and let it update.
· DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.

Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:
(Start tapping F8 at the first black screen after power up)

Run Ewido:
· Click on scanner
· Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
· During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
· When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
· Save the report to your C: Drive
This will take some time to run!
Boot to normal mode
Post that log and a new HiJack log

Get HiJack This V1.99.1 http://thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe - double click the DL file and click UNZIP letting it extract to its default folder C:\Program FIles\HiJackThis, run it from there, DO NOT fix anything, post the log here.

I have edited your post, along with the title. Please remember this is also a family forum. So watch the language.
