Did you use the newest version of malwarebytes? Did you run it in standard mode (without connecting the LAN)? Malwarebytes must run in standard mode, not in safe mode, if it should be of any use.

Try superantispyware and install Microsoft Security Essentials

what SP level are you at now? XP pre SP2 is a sitting duck when it comes to malware

one again - how do you connect to internet ?

1)  press F8 and disable Automatic restart on system failure this will not shutdown your PC perhaps it will provide you BSOD with error code.

2)As well as locate at the below location and
open>>RUN>>EventVWR>>System events>> filter with error source as Save dump.
This will provide you the location at which dump file is generated.

Request you to upload that dump file.

Regards,
Tonyp
