I believe that has to do with either spyware or a virus. Have you scanned your system for both lately?

STEP 1. Clear the system restore points (if you don’t want to do this move onto the next step but be aware viruses can infect system restores and can come back or still cause problems):
• Click Start >> Run - type SYSDM.CPL & press Enter
• Select the System Restore Tab
• Tick on the checkbox - "Turn off System Restore on all drives"
• Click Apply
• Then untick the same checkbox & click OK
• This deletes ALL restore points that had the infection and creates a clean one

STEP 2. Proceed to try these spyware cleaners and rootkit finders in safe mode and full system scans (To get into safe mode reset the pc then keep pressing F8 until a menu appears in which you can select safe mode some computers use F5, F6 or F7 to get the menu up).

Ad aware SE:

Ad Aware VX2 add on (To run this tool once Adaware is updated click on Add-ons in the lefthand column. Select VX2 Cleaner V2.0 and click Run Tool. Click "OK"):


Advanced Spyware Remover:

Windows Defender Beta 2 (need real copy of windows to work)

CWshredder(removes some browser hijackers):

Blacklight (rootkit remover)


STEP 3. Run online scans from the following (they may not clean your system but can give an idea of what’s infecting you):


trend micro:

STEP 4. Run STEP 6 at this point then uninstall your virus scanner and install each one of these and run a full system scan. Make sure to uninstall each one after its finished and run them in safe mode.




Bit Defender:

To clear the Java cache follow these steps (if java is installed):
1. From the Start button, click Settings > Control Panel
2. In the Control Panel, open the "Java Plug-in Control Panel"
3. Select the Cache Tab
4. Click the Clear button inside the Cache Tab, which will clear your JRE cache directory

STEP 6. Download this program to clean your temp files and registry:


STEP 7. Download [/b]hijackthis and post a log in the forum:

ok run vundo fix that i posted there, in safemode then try adaware again. If it still continues to shutdown try these other options:

lavasoft help:
"By default, Windows XP is configured by Microsoft to automatically restart during a fatal error or a stop.

Windows XP assumes when Ad-Aware is gathering drive info, that Ad-Aware has stopped (or had an error), so Windows restarts.

Altering the following settings should correct this.

Right-click 'My Computer',
Click the 'Advanced' tab,
Click 'Settings' under 'Startup and Recovery', '
UNCHECK the 'Automatically restart' check box under 'System Failure'."

another forum solution:


I dont own windows 2000 so am unsure how it is different. Try going to start--> control panel and clicking on system then see if system restore is an option.Or right clicking on my computer and properties and seeing if its there.
