I have several problems with my machine, due to which I suspect some malware.
I am facing problems like:
1. When I try to run Add New Hardware from Control Panel, I get several errors like "Windows could not load the installer for XXXX"
2. If I try to run SFC, my machine crashes and shuts down.
3. If I try to insall Update Rollup 1 for Win 2000 SP 4, I get a "The memory could not be read/written" type of error. (By th way, my RAM is OK. I have tested with DocMemory)
So I tried to run Online Virus Scan at this URL: http://housecall60.t.../start_corp.asp
First I get a dialog box asking Do you want to install and run ...... by Trend Micro Inc.
I click Yes.
Then I get the error:
"The instruction at "0x77fcc2c0" referenced memory at "0x00000001". The memory could not be "written". Click on OK to terminate the program"
The actual memory address varies.
Why am I not able to run the virus scan ?
