I can get system open through safe mode networking, but system goes to a blue screen once turned on, on it's own. I have run all diagnostic tests, all ok. Ran spy bot through E.E. found plenty of errors, but still resonds the same.

Thanks for your time

spybot is a little outdated, a better malware removal tool is called malwarebytes. The free version does not protect the computer in the background but does a fairly good job of removing malware.

Could be a rootkit infection.  Try downloading TDSSKiller:

Run it in safe-mode. If it finds anything, it will want to reboot.  Please post the log for review.

Malware bytes did work, cleared out a major trogan, but this thing keeps coming back to bite. After running a number of recovery programs was able to run chkdsk /p which told me volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems. So it looks like I'm going to pull off my files and rebuild the drive? Any ideas

Thanks for your help
