XP rebooting at random intervals

  1. Hello,

    I'm having serious problems with my operating system (XP Professional), everytime i boot up the system it will reboot itself at random intervals around 1-5 minutes depending on if i try to run a program or not (if i do it will restart, if not it will by itself in a few minutes). I have tried system restore..the system restores restarts and then tells me that it wasnt able to restore and is returning to normal settings. I have also tried running microsoft spyware and ad-aware in safe mode, i deleted those malicious files but the same problem persists. I have also tried a virus scan, but the system restarts not too long into the scan, also i have tried running it in safe mode but it doesnt work.

    Now each time the pc restarts and loads up again Windows tells me it has recovered from a serious error and these messages come up


    Error Signiture:
    BCCode : 1000008e BCP1 : C0000005 BCP2 : F7BBE459 BCP3 : B2AAAB58
    BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 0_0 Product : 256_1

    Techical Information:
    C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini031505-08.dmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\ROB\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1.tmp.dir00\s


    I had trouble even registering to these forums, the pages wouldnt load in normal mode, either would msn but they do in safe mode. The only thing i can think of which may have caused the problem, is that i went to a website and microsoft spyware and my anti-virus went crazy detecting all kinds of things, i blocked and deleted all of them but since then this problem has been occuring.

    I'm all out of ideas and wondering if anyone knows what this is or what i can do..

    Let HJT fix the following entries after turning off system restore.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [KAZAA] C:\Program Files\Kazaa Lite\Kazaa.exe /SYSTRAY

    O4 - Startup: LimeWire On Startup.lnk = C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe

    O9 - Extra button: Microsoft AntiSpyware helper - {7CA87E5A-6123-4A6C-AC88-18CE3BEB1E39} - (no file) (HKCU)
    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Microsoft AntiSpyware helper - {7CA87E5A-6123-4A6C-AC88-18CE3BEB1E39} - (no file) (HKCU)

    O15 - Trusted IP range: 67.19.178.84 Never trust anyone.

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: drct16 - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drct16.dll This is part of a backdoor trojan called Haxdoor.d

    See HERE for more info and removal instructions.

    Other than the entries I have pointed out you system looks pretty clean.

    If I have missed anything I`m sure RBS will take a look at it for you as well.
