  1. Yes, you guessed correctly - it is a laptop. Overheating sounds pretty logical - I hope it's nothing more serious than that. These sites look very informative. Thank you so much for all your help!!
  2. Overall things seems to run better. The error message that was the initial problem has not reappeared so your magic has worked wonders! Earlier, before I ran the scan my computer shut down all of a sudden and I received a stop error screen. I restarted manually and it loaded normally. For a few months now, every once and a while this happens... and I usually just manually restart the computer and everything seems fine, but I can't figure out why it occurs or how to stop it from happening again. Housekeeping sounds like a great idea. I will follow your every direction. Thank you so muc

  4. I guess I have a faulty wifi connection... I connected via ethernet and was able to run the full scan. Here's the log: ESET C:Program FilesGoforFilesuninstall.exe a variant of Win32/YourFileDownloader.B application C:System Volume Information_restore{46DE8921-1D39-44D2-A9E9-64119261F211}RP1188A0219292.exe a variant of Win32/Adware.MediaFinder.F application I waiting on your wisdom for the next step. Thanks
  5. I uninstalled utorrent (hopefully completely) by deleting the data application from the C:/ drive. Do you think I should also run a CCleaner in order to delete associated files? I found that reccommendation on another site and it seemed like a good idea to do that perhaps at a later point in time. I'm not able to get past step 2 of the ESET scan. During the initialization stage, it reaches 98% and then a red message appears telling me it cannot get an update and asks me if the proxy is configured. I went back and tried to see if I could configure it but I don't understand what information
  6. I actually did try to uninstall utorrent because I understand it makes the computer very vulnerable. I guess I wasn't able to successfully uninstall it or maybe the system restore brought it back. I will uninstall it and run this other scan this evening. The computer seems to be running better already - I've stopped receiving the error message I got before. Thanks so much for all your help!

  8. Also, please let me know if there's any other scans I should be performing. I have always used AVG or some similar anti-virus scan and this is actually the first time I've run a Malwarebytes scan. thanks
  9. Hi, thanks for your response. Here is the Malwarebytes log from the full scan: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Trial) www.malwarebytes.org Database version: v2013.03.28.01 Windows XP Service Pack 3 x86 NTFS Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702 Student :: MS-F07-05 [administrator] Protection: Enabled 3/27/2013 10:23:17 PM mbam-log-2013-03-27 (22-23-17).txt Scan type: Full scan (C:|) Scan options enabled: Memory | Startup | Registry | File System | Heuristics/Extra | Heuristics/Shuriken | PUP | PUM Scan options disabled: P2P Objects scanned: 319852 Time elapsed: 3 hour(s),
  10. Hi! Help! I have a Dell Windows XP computer and recently I keep receiving a DLL bad image error message for just about every program on my computer which says something like "The application or DLL name.DLL is not a valid windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette." I've run AVG and no threats appear. I did a full Malwarebytes scan and although it did remove some malware, it didn't fix the problem. I also tried to do a system restore but that didn't fix it either. I'm thinking about trying to do a clean install reinstallation of Windows but I know this is a lo
