Alright ive read through the forum and i see a lot of ppl having this problem, ive read all the posts and followed all instructions no matter if i thought it would help or not. I have the "Services.exe was terminated unexpectedly with status code 203" like the others the error code varies from time to time but this is the most common one, then it gives me 60 secs and boots me or freezes me. As the other posts said ive downloaded, updated and ran: AVG Avert Stinger Spybot Spyware blaster and i own and ran counterspy on my own. ive tried editing a couple (1 or 2) registry keys as it said to on a couple of other forums to no avail. i also ran HJT cause i see it was recommended in most cases, i will post the log in a following string. please help im so frustrated... ~TheMackey my HJT log is to long to post so i attached it to this post here: View attachment 10742 Also i noticed that when i dont do anything "net" related it wont crash, also it loves to crash when i run firefox, which i thought was to be better than IE.
