Now relax. It takes a lot of time to try to diagnose a computer on your desk from my desk say 2000 miles away. I know the end result.

Please tell me why you removed Spyware Doctor? And please tell me what you did or what happened before you removed it? Are you running 32 or 64 bit programs.

I want to know what is in the computer?. How much memory? What is the OS? What is your browser? How big is your hard drive? When is the last time you cleaned out the Cookies or did a Defrag? Tell me about your CPU?

I want you to give me clues like this for instance ... for the last 10 days I've had a lot more blue screens than normal. I want to know everything you can remember that is out of ordinary before you removed Spyware Doctor..

Did you run any diagnostics yet?

Is it possible there is malware? Use another computer to download MalwareBytes to a thumb drive and run on the problem computer.

This is a good suggestion.

Unfortunately, and because I do not see well, I cannot enlarge the jogs enough to read the error messages.

Honestly the links should probably just be deleted. That site is laced with extremely graphic porn ads.

Anyway,

Try this.

Start -> Run -> cmd

ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset

You might get asked to reboot after the netsh commands.

All you would have had to have done was click on the image and it would have brought you here:

imgChili » 6352494_event_log_error.jpg

And then repeat procedure for the next three images....

BTW, I saw no "extremely graphic porn ads" on the image hosting website imgChili. Possible the person who reported this has their machine hacked and is being redirected to some p0rn0 web site...

~ The first log entry you have is related to Windows WMI.

~ The second log entry is a warning that WLIDSVC.exe had opened a registry key.

~ The third log entry is the description for Event ID 0 from source IMF service cannot be found.

~ The fourth log entry is the Cryptographic Services failed because a file could not be found.

PS: The next time you post screen caps of any log(s) please include the information that was associated with the event. In the four you posted you did not.

IObit Malware Fighter?

To find out particulars on the above log entries I suggest you peruse Microsoft's technical forums and database.

It's above and below all the images. There are even discussions about the porn ads on their forum, with people complaining that they can't use the service to share family photos/etc because of all the porn. Also, I accessed it both from OS X and from an OpenSuSE install that was just done a couple hours ago, so no, it's not the case that my machine has been "hacked and is being redirected to some p0rn0 web site."

The OP simply chose to post the images to a site that is known for being littered with ads and popups for porn sites - probably because they'll pay you for sending people to their site.
