I wonder if you can help. My friends PC is acting kinda weird. When he switches on, all loads up fine, but whenever he tries to log on onlione, if the site has any affiliation with an antivirus co. (ie. AVG) or spyware removal co. (Ad-aware) it shuts it down.
The same also happens when he tries to open his task manager - shuts it down, same if i right click on START then go 'Properties' - it shuts down.
I have a feeling that it could be MSN messenger related due to the similar functions as the Serflog virus, but myself i don't believe in using messenger so never really have.
Has anyone had similar bizarrities happen to them who would know what to do? I tried doing a Hijack log earlier, but PC screwed up on me whilst attempt. Running in safe mode does allow me more access, but at the mo. its very temperamental.
use hijack in safe mode n delete the one which says msvc or something like that thats what i had done and then when i had restarted it diidnt come n i was able to get my norton running and afterwards i deleted something in the registry which is causing me lots of problems at the moment.
