    as the title says I was infected with a bunch of random stuff. I cleaned it... or at least I think I did. but now explorer is crashing all the time. the shell, not the browser. HJT log...

    what kind of ANTIVIRUS program do you have?

    i dont see an active one in your process list.

    and i dont see an active FIREWALL as well..

    what kind of firewall do you have?

    only ANTISPYWARE is active it seems....

    it is no wonder you have problems.



    i recomend ZONE ALARM free firewall-----one of the best firewalls.

    and AVAST and/or NOD32 as ANTIVIRUS tools---the best ANTIVIRUS tools you can find.

    it being infected had nothing to do with the lack of a firewall or lack of a virus scanner. it was a once in a lifetime thing. silly mistake on my part.

    I have avast installed and I use my router as a firewall essentially

    that still doesn't answer my question though, why might my system be crashing?

    what was the mistake?

    so that we may be able to understand the nature of your problem better.




    it is possible that your PC is not entirely clean.

    one ANIVIRUS program cannot dettect ALL the viruses,worms,trojans.

    install NOD32 and try scanning again for malware.
