    Default computer acting bizarre

    few months back i had this stupid blue screen that came on and said windows has shut down because it has found an error and is preventing further damage to your computer yadda yadda etc....

    fixed that

    other day it starts doing dumb shit again. i cannot start the dam thing in safe mode...that fucking screen comes up. i can only start it if i go to last known good settings. mind you, i can just restart the computer fine.

    my anti-virus and software from ca.com found some things the other day and got rid of em. i also ran malwarebytres by antimalware but the program wouldn't work anymore, i tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it won't load onto my comp

    i'm getting stupid popups on firefox. when i put the browser on...it says untitled in that little box under the back and forward arrows and won't load. if i click the home page button, yahoo loads automatically like there was no problem.

    i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox

    wtf boys??

    sound very similar to what happened to me a few weeks ago. I had a trojan called Vundo. it's nasty. I will save you the trouble... You need to get a program called spybot search and destroy. Install and run it, dont throw away the install file, but once it's done running and scanning, UNINSTALL it and reboot your computer. Then, install again and re run it. Also, unplug your computer from the internet and turn off and uninstall all security software (provided you can get it back from a disk) BEFORE YOU RUN IT the first time.

    other things to look for after you've done all this - look to see if your firewall is really still on. It might say it is, but this thing was tricking mine into thinking it was still on. Also see if your automatic updates form windows will stay on. It was turning my off within a few minutes. If not, you're clear. If so, you still got it. And the cycle will start over.

    now keep in mind, this might work, I had to completely re install windows to get rid of mine. so, good luck .

    this is the part that confuses me - you say it starts when you choose "Last Known Good Configuration" - then what? It's ok until you reboot again?

    ELM is correct in that if you have Vundo, it and all it's little variations are nasty. However, unless you recall seeing that from your virus scan, that might not be what it is - most of what I'm seeing these days is a lot of popups and some files that I have to send users into the recovery console to delete - not a blue screen.

    I guess if you can get into Windows at all, do start/run and type "msconfig" and go to the startup tab and let us know what is running.

    I wish I could help more, but I can recommend MajorGeeks.com. The support forums have always been very helpful, and the site has loads of freeware.

    i had a similar problem a while back, after replacing the ram and the graphics card it turned out to be a currupt registry (possibly caused by one of those registry cleaner/fixer programs) if you use such a program get rid of it. to cut a long story short, i had to re-install windows.
    also, which operating system are you using, some of the microsft updates have been known to cause similar problems....removing them fixes the error (only the one causing the problem...don't remove any others).

    my 1/100th of a cent..

    My 1/100th of a cent (bad economy, inflation, etc....can't do the whole 2 cents anymore); when surfing the web, NEVER run your web browser under administrative credentials. Create a generic user account and run your browser as that user. I know that Vista and Windows 7 come with the "Admin Approve Mode" enabled, but I would still recommend AGAINST running a browser as administrator at all. The other advantage of this is that if anything mucks up the profile of the generic user, just blow away that profile and start over, no prob! Running a browser as a restricted user "typically" will prevent against these kinds of issues (the quotes are because there is always SOMETHING...hehe..). Anyway, rant over.....back to my cube.......

    my virus scan detected vundo and got rid of it and a couple other things

    spybot found only 3 things and got rid of em. rebooted my comp and this virus came on the screen...spyware removal 2009 or some shit...so i had to load the task manager when the comp loaded up, look under processes for a bunch of random numbers..that was the virus..i turned it off...then i was finally able to get into my antivirus stuff.

    had a buddy go online for me to see what that virus was and how to get rid of it cuz i couldn't get online, said spydoctor would get rid of it. i ran it and bang, found and deleted it. restart my comp and it's still there.

    so i ran the fucking thing again found it again,. deleted it...updated the spyware program ran again found more shit....gonna reboot and see what happens

    this virus takes all the icons off your screen and leaves it blue..annoying, so you have to access everything from the start menu
