Constant blue screen and wierd CHKDSK function

  1. I am not able to attach the dump files for they exceed 100kb. Thanks. This is making me crazy:
    I purchased a Dell Inspiron 1520 with Vista Home Premium. The computer was an "open box special"
    I started to migrate the data and settings over, and shortly threreafter got the BSOD. Sometimes it says Driver_IRQl and other times Driver_power_state.
    I called dell, and all hardware checks out. I did Dell's crash analysis, and got a "vsdatant.sys" driver conflict with my Zone Alarm anti-virus. I have reinstalled it three times, and EVERYTIME I try to do a virus scan, I was getting the BSOD, so I dumped it. I have dumped zone alarm anti virus

    Here is where it get's fun. I descided to do a chkdsk /F. WHen I do that a blue software screen pops up that says :

    In the top bar of the following software box, the path reads:


    Trojan-Spy.HTML smitfraud. Killer
    by noahdfear
    Version 3.2

    This tool was tailored to remove smitfraud.c and variants
    If you do not trust this source, close this window.

    Press any key to continue.
    I must have somehow transferred this over? Is this the Virus? I have run Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot.
    How do I get this out of CHKDSC??

    You will be prompted: Do you want to clean the registry ? answer Y (yes)
    and hit Enter in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

    The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found): Replace infected file ? answer Y (yes) and hit Enter to restore a clean file.

    A reboot may be needed to finish the cleaning process. The report can be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt
