PC keeps rebooting if nic card connected
Posted on 2004-10-24
I have a dilemna. I have a desktop win w2k professional on it. It is in a workgroup. This is a home pc. I am trying to clean up some spyware.trojans, etc.. from this desktop. When I try to signon normally with the nic attached to internet I am able to sigon then the computer reboots. If I have the nic not attached to the internet when I signon everything is ok. I can even then attach the nic to the internet after the bootup and the desktop is workable. I can go into safe mode w networking while the nic is attached to the internet. I have deleted over 800 objects from ad aware, ran spybot S &D, and ran Mcafee virus scan 05. I think the issue is either a virus or a trojan, but I cant find which one. I have cleaned up some calls to the registry, but it still odes the same thing. Has anyone heard of any specific spyware, viruses that cause this behavior.
