    It started out with the Smithfraud trojan... I tried to run AdAware, but hafway through the scan, mymachine reboots itself. The same thing has happened with Norton AV, A2 (A Squared), and AVG.
    I've tried running the online scanner at Panda, but it won't run on anything but MSIE -- which I can't get to run on my machine. I've tried removing what I can manually, to no avail. I'm running XP SP1.
    Does anyone know what's going on here, or how to fix this? I've attached my hijackthis log in the hopes that it may give someone a clue as to what the source of the problem could be. I would surely appreciate any insight anyone might be able to offer! Thank you!

    I can't read your HJT log since I am not an expert on them. But you should check this, don't just delete it, but it will give you somewhere to start at least. you should post your HJT log at one of the sites in this notice here as we no longer do unsolicited HJT logs.

    :D You did not mention what Scan "setting" you used doing the Ad-aware
    scan !? Having advised on the Ad-aware Support forums, I recommend
    you register, then post a logfile at .
    "Corrine" will help you the best she can; she may even suggest using
    "special instructions" in running an Ad-aware scan. If that does not work,
    she will call in her HijackThis expert friends to assist .
