Screen randomly goes black virus?

  1. Came across this board while trying to figure out if I have a virus. My screen will randomly go black and it just started yesterday. I have an Acer system running XP. I don't think is hardware related since my wife's laptop started the same thing yesterday. I'll leave that for another post. From reading your board I took the hijack this screen shoot of my system and was wondering if anybody could offer advice. Here's the file. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    Please follow the steps HERE.

    When finished, attach the 3 logs for review.

    NOTE: Be sure to check the lines in both Malwarebytes and Superantispyware to remove what they find.

    Please delete the HijackThis log. It is a Beta version. Download the correct version HERE. Rescan after the 2 previous programs and include a new log.

    I'll see if anything needs to be removed in HijackThis, so you don't remove any entries in that.
