  1. Hey guys my computer's been popping up with an NT/Authority problem on services.exe with an error code of 203 and sometimes 1073741819. Its the window that gives you 60 seconds until the computer shuts off. it seems to come and go which is very strange to me. My HJT log is attached. any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Your system may have been infected by malware. (I do see something I would remove in that hijackthis log, though not very urgent. I would need more logs to be sure) At least two other users have reported similar problems and both cases had their system checked for malware. Please do the following.

    Very Important: Malware infections can possibly lead to identity theft, loss of funds from bank accounts, misuse of credit card information etc. Therefore I strongly encourage you to please read this thread HERE before deciding what course of action to take regarding your infection.

    Should you decide to clean your computer, please go ahead to Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions and follow the steps given. Do follow all the instructions exactly. They will provide logs for analysis of your system so I will know how to instruct you to proceed.

    Thereafter, please post fresh HijackThis, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread. Do not copy and paste your logs if not it will be ignored and/or removed.

    Also, please let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan

    Your friendly momok =)
