  1. My pc recently started rebooting at will. I run Kapersky Internet Suite for protection but something got past it. I ran ad-aware and it fount 6 items and supposedly deleted them. problem still existed so I downloaded and installed MS Debugging tools for windows but couldn't make much sense out of the log.
    the only thing I gathered was that one of three drivers, ptdrv.sys, klim5.sys, and modem.sys might be the problem.
    next i downloaded and installed combofix I need help understanding what the log means

    Try updating the PhoneTray Dialup driver, and check for a newer version of Kaspersky
