Hi everyone, thanks for helping me out and lending your time to solving my problems. My computer keeps restarting randomly when not in safe mode.

I have windows XP, 2 yr. old computer.

a portion of the Error signature:
"BCCode : 10000050 BCP1 : 82400000"

Error report contents
C:\docume~1\owner\locals~1\temp\wer4.tmp.dir00\sys data.xml
c:\\windows\minidump\mini092905-04.dmp

I've run CounterSpy, LavaSoft Ad-Aware, Norton Antivirus(and many more norton programs), Microsoft Anti-Spyware, Spyware Doctor, edited my registry, Spybot Search and Destroy, Googled, checked the MSN troubleshooting page, etc. Please help! Thanks

You have a variant of the W32/SDBot worm, as evidenced by the "lockx.exe" file mentioned in your HJT log. Please do the following:

1. Reboot into safe mode (you get to the safe mode boot option by hitting the F8 key as your computer is starting up)

- Open Windows Explorer, and in the Folder Options->View settings under the Tools menu, select "show hidden files and folders", and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extentions for known file types".

- For every user account listed under C:\Documents and Settings, delete the entire contents of these folders (but not the folders themselves):

Important: One of the normal steps in eliminating malicious programs is to entirely delete the contents of all Temp folders. Given that, if any data that you care about is living in those Temp folders, you need to move it to a safe location now, or it will be erased along with everything else!

1. Cookies
2. Local Settings\Temp
3. Local Settings\History
4. Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

- Delete the entire content of your C:\Windows\Temp folder.

- Delete the entire content of your C:\Windows\Prefetch folder.

Note- If you get any messages concerning the deletion of system files such as desktop.ini or index.dat, just choose to delete those files; they'll be automatically regenerated by Windows if needed. Windows will allow you to delete the versions of those files which exist in sub-folders within the main Temp/Temorary folders, but might not let you delete the versions of those files that exist in the main Temp folders themselves; this is normal and OK.

- Empty your Recycle Bin.

- Reboot normally


2. Run at least two or three of the following online anti-virus/anti-spyware scans and let them fix what they can:

http://www.kaspersky.com/scanforvirus.html
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp?cid=9914
http://www.pandasoftware.com/active...n_principal.htm
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php


3. Run HijackThis again and post the new log.

I appreciate the rapid response and time spent answering my question and finding me a solution to this problem.

Preparation:
Downloaded LQfix.zip (while in Safe mode with networking), extracted, shut down, pulled internet cable, turned on and boot into safe mode without networking.

Removal:
Removed all of the entries, boot into safe mode, removed all files found from start menu search, boot into normal mode, and ran Trend Micro Housecall - COmplete Scan using IE.

Microsoft Vulnerability Check 6 vulnerabilities detected

What we checked:
Microsoft known security vulnerabilities. These are issues Microsoft has identified and released Critical Updates to fix.
Results:
We have detected 6 vulnerability/vulnerabilities on your computer. Only 0 out of 0 vulnerabilities are displayed.
Risk Level Issue How to Fix
Important A vulnerability in ASP.NET allows an attacker to bypass the security of an ASP.NET Web site, and access a machine. The attacker gains unauthorized access to some areas of the said Web site, and is able to control it accordingly. The actions that the attacker could take would depend on the specific content being protected. MS05-004
Critical This remote code execution vulnerability exists in the processing of PNG image formats. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. MS05-009
Important A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Message Queuing that could allow an attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability to take complete control of the affected system. MS05-017
Critical This security bulletin resolves the following vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer.; The PNG Image Rendering Memory Corruption vulnerability could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system because of a vulnerability in the way Internet Explorer handles PNG images.; The XML Redirect Information Disclosure vulnerability could allow an attacker to read XML data from another Internet Explorer domain because of a vulnerability in the way Internet Explorer handles certain requests to display XML content. MS05-025
Important A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Outlook Express when it is used as a newsgroup reader. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by constructing a malicious newsgroup server that could that potentially allow remote code execution if a user queried the server for news. MS05-030
Critical This security bulletin resolves the following vulnerabilities found in Internet Explorer: (1) JPEG Image Rendering Memory Corruption vulnerability, which allows remote code execution when exploited by a remote malicious user, (2) Web Folder Behaviors Cross-Domain vulnerability, allows information disclosure or remote code execution on an affected system, and (3) COM Object Instantiation Memory Corruption vulnerability, which exists in the way Internet Explorer lists the instances of COM Objects that are not intended to be used in Internet Explorer. MS05-038

DESCRIPTION OF STATUS QUO

My computer has stopped it's annoying habit of displaying the "Windows has had a critical error and must shut down now" window, so I can actually use it in normal mode. There are pop-ups still but otherwise the computer is functional. Thanks a lot for all your help. I tried to format the text so that it would be easier to read.
