Please help with computer issues


Recommended Posts

I was given a computer with Windows XP a few years ago, so I don't have the disks to reinstall. Several months ago, it started acting up. This machine has two 500 GB hard drives set up in a RAID 1 configuration. I have McAfee installed as the main antivirus software, and McAfee started having problems and crashing. The next symptom was that Internet Explorer would open, but not FireFox or Chrome. IE would take a while to open, and then it seemed fine. FireFox and Chrome would try to open, but never would. I would have to kill those two using task manager. It seemed that they were not getting responses from the internet.

I took the machine to a friend, and we have tried several things. Some of the things we did include:

* check for hardware issues

(but this could still be the problem)

* reinstall browsers

* reinstall McAfee, but it still crashes

* install and run Microsoft safety scanner

* install and run HiJackThis

* install SpybotSD

Spybot did not seem to install completely, and it seems to cause the machine to crash in such a way that the drives are corrupted. We have used plugged the drives into another machine and run checkdisk in order to get my machine back up. But, it is still crashing. It seems like it has a virus that is attacking McAfee. We did manage to get the HiJackThis log off the machine, so that I can post it to forums for help.

We will try to install the other software mentioned in this forum and get the requested logs, but it is difficult to keep the machine running long enough to get the information right now. For now, we only the HiJackThis log, which is included at the end of this message. Any and all help in determining the problem is greatly appreciated.
