I'm having the same problems as described by the poster in this thread: techspot.com/vb/topic91214.html [It wouldn't let me link, since I have fewer than three posts] If you need me to be more specific, I can try, but that person pretty much said it all. Also, for the past few months, I've occasionally been getting this Windows File Protection pop-up that says, "Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been replaced by unrecognized versions. To maintain system stability, Windows must install the original versions of these files. Insert your Windows XP Professional CD2 now." Problem is, my machine came with XP already installed, so I don't have a CD... And lastly, I turned my computer on this morning, and my AVG anti-virus freaked out, telling me that almost all of my startup files were infected with a Trojan called 'Generic9.tcw'. I just clicked Heal on all of the pop-ups, and it said the actions were successful. After that, the Windows File Protection message came up again. I ran HJT and attached my log. I've posted in other forums in the past and received no help, so hopefully you guys can restore my faith. Please.
