Unusual program termination

  1. Greetings,

    I`m having a problem with my pc. I keep on getting a message saying c++ unusual termination request. Then my applications close on me. This happens at various times, on all sorts of applications. From firefox, AVG, IE, VLC, Nero and the list goes on.

    I did a antivirus, antispyware, tried to restore the settings to the optimal settings, tried to restore the pc, tried rebooting. So far, nothing. The only thing that I was able to discover was when I ran my AVG, before it would crash, ├Čt would show a file named ntoskrnl in the system 32 that is changed. It would not designate it as a virus.

    If someone has any idea of what I should do next, please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are using SpySweeper that is the culprit, if not look at any spyware program that runs when you boot or when you are on line and uninstall them

    Also the change in that file is ok, not a Virus
