Hi guys,

I have given up and formatted this PC already, but I would love to
hear from anyone who can tell me how to fix this for future reference.

I had a PC, which amongst other things, was showing fake BSOD messages
and pretending to restart. I tried several things to try to get rid of
this including:

1. Spybot SD in safe mode
2. Malware Antibytes in Safe Mode
3. Installed Kaspersky IS 9
4. Repair Install

Nothing I did seemed to fix it. Anyone know how to?

Cheers

-Al

Go read replies to your disconnected MULTI-posted message in the other
groups to which you posted.

Learn to cross-post:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossposting
http://www.blakjak.demon.co.uk/mul_crss.htm
http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/usenet/xpost.html

A point not made is that N multiposted copies will consume N times the
disk space for each of the separate copies of the same post.
Crossposted messages have just *one* copy on the server with links in
the newsgroups back to the same single copy.  Multiposting wastes disk
space on the server.  Yes, your post may be small but remember that you
consume N times the space on one server and then do so again on all the
newsgroups servers worldwide.  You waste more bandwidth getting N copies
of your multiposted message distributed to all the newsgroups servers
worldwide.  Cross-posting has just one copy of the message on an NNTP
server, and only one copy gets propagated to other NNTP servers.

To those visiting the newsgroups, crossposting helps them see ALL the
replies from those in the other RELATED newsgroup to which you linked
your post.  That way, they don't waste their time duplicating similar
replies.

Don't cross-post to more groups than needed if at all.  Many consider
cross-posting to more than 4 groups as rude and may filter out your
post.  The more groups you add, the less likely that they are related,
the less accurate or focused are the targeted groups, or some of the
included groups may already encompassed by another included but more
general group.  If the are subgroups under a topic, choose whether you
will be specific or general in the targeted groups to which you post.
Don't go shotgunning your post across multiple groups trying to capture
as large an audience as possible as you will offend netizens with your
poor aim.

You need a better understanding of XP and what a bluescreen is. You also
need to know how to use XP Debug Tools and analyze system and Dr Watson
dumps. Most people unnecessarily rebuild their system to correct the problem
when usually it is a device driver problem or hardware problem. Go to help
and study up on the XP Debug Tools.

Actually, he is correct.  Some versions of rogue/fake antimalware now include a
fake BSoD
screen.

This is what they include.
