I've got a problem that is driving me mad... i recently cleared my hard drive started from scratch .

my problem revolves around certain progams for example if i launch any type of media player to play music or to watch a film without any codecs installed...it works absolutely fine but as soon as the codecs are installed the computer loads up the film then turns the pcstraight off and restarts after a second of viewing...at first i thought i had dodgy codecs so removed them entirely and tried a different lot...still the same problem...

if not annoying enough...it then started doing the same with limewire and certain webpages...so im thinking it could be flash/java orientated to...

same thing happens with zshare or if im trying to upload multi pics on a java screen...

this is the error report thats sent to microsoft
on reboot
serious error

any help you can give me would be most appreciated!!!

Hi and welcome;

The reason you are experiencing these problems is because you keep reinfecting your PC. The programs you are using and the files you download are unsafe and infecting you and the codecs are infecting you with Trojans too.

P2P Warning!

IMPORTANT We notice there are signs of one or more P2P (Person to Person) File Sharing Programs on your computer.

Please note that as long as you are using any form of Peer-to-Peer networking and downloading files from non-documented sources there is a high probability that you will be infested with malware.

Once upon a time, P2P file sharing was fairly safe. That is no longer true. You may continue to use P2P sharing at your own risk; however, please keep in mind that this practice may be the source of your current malware infestation.

References for the risk of these programs can be found in these links:
Malware: Help prevent the Infection
IM And P2P Malware Threats Nearly Triple - Technology News by TechWeb
How to Prevent Online Invation of Spyware, Adware and Malware

We would recommend that you uninstall these P2P programs, however that choice is up to you. If you choose to remove these programs, you can do so in the Control Panel via Add/Remove Programs. If you have Vista it's Programs and Features.

However in order for us to provide future assistance on this matter you must remove the P2P first as it would be fruitless unless the possible cause is ruled out first and to prevent future infestations.

Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot.

Post back with the full error that will be produced.
