For no apparent reason my computer (pretty good quality hardware, custom built, rather new, and I'm usually not bad at keeping it malware-free) had this problem: It'd load up to the user sign in screen and then give this error something like "windows had to clear the registry(?) and we just did so successfully". Then it'd blue screen and reboot. And do it all over again. I said "use last good config" and it actually booted up for a time. However, Firefox couldn't connect, IE7 shut down immediately, McAffee shut down immediately. That's all the programs I can particularly remember trying. Then I did system restore and wound up with the same problem as before. Now it gives me this "NT authority\system" thing with the 60 seconds till shutdown. Googling it, this is a virus from 2004..?? That makes absolutely no sense to me. The latest software I installed that's like "maybe it's a virus that caused all this" is the Korean filesharing thing Clubbox. I don't see how it could have caused that though cuz a million other people around places like d-addicts.com seem to be using it all the time. I put this in this forum cuz it might be a virus, sorry if I was wrong for doing that. Thank you!!
