Answers :

The earlier suggestion of going into safe mode is spot on. But what do you do when you get there?
\015\012
\015\012Assuming Windows XP/Vista:
I will suggest a two prong approach to this. I think the blue screen is the infectors attempt to corrupt your antivirus install. The first step is to get us back to a stable, though still infected, state.
\015\012
\015\012So, after you've gotten into safe mode you could attempt to go back to a previous restore point (see Use System Restore to Undo Changes if Problems Occur)
\015\012
\015\012Another approach would be to use msconfig to shut down everything (except, of course, the infector). To do that, click "Start", "Run...", type "msconfig" and click [ok] or press [Enter].
Choose "Diagnostics Startup", click [OK] and allow it to restart your computer. This will essentially disable ALL non-essential services and startup programs.
Once restarted, it will notify you that msconfig has been invoked. This won't get rid of the 'bad guy', but it will get us to the point of being able to do something about it. You will probably find it necessary to go back into msconfig and enable some services, specifically those belonging to Microsoft. Things like Windows Installer if you are trying to install/uninstall applications.

Stage two is getting rid of whatever started this whole mess. There are a number of stand-alone spyware/malware removal tools. Many are FREE!
I've had the most luck with spyware removal using Malwarebytes. Download here: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Download Link.
And since no one spyware/malware tool is perfect, don't be afraid to use any of the malware tools found here: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-adware-spyware-scumware-remover.htm.
\015\012
\015\012The only tool I use that isn't mentioned there is ComboFix: http://www.combofix.org/. Honestly, while some of the others have better detection rates, if it finds it, ComboFix is THE most effective removal tool I've found.
\015\012
\015\012If none of this works, a last resort is to use a Live Boot Disk solution like UBCD for Windows. You will need access to a working computer and a Windows XP installation CD to do this, but you can 'get around' your infected OS and, hopefully, clean things up.

AOL Hourglass I have a fairly new e-machines desktop running XP, with 256 MB of RAM. I have a serious problem with the performance of AOL version 9, security edition, dialup access.

My Dell OptiPlex GX 520 has frozen. It runs Windows XP. Here in the UK, we have had a cold snap in what the papers are calling "The Coldest Day". Dunno if that's got anything to do with it. Anyway, I came down in the morning and the screen was off as if it had gone into sleep mode, but shaking the mouse or tapping the keyboard did not work. So, I tried turning it off and on again. The bootup screen came on, and the bar filled nearly up to the top, but then froze there. I left it for five minutes
