Computer freezing even after virus removal

This is a repost, as I posted my hijack this log on my original post and I am emailing the moderators to have it deleted. Sorry.


My computer began crashing this morning, and when I ran malwarebytes, it removed several trojans. In order to get it to run long enough, I had to turn on in safe mode. I was able to scan with hijack this, malwarebytes, spywareblaster, superspyware. Now, my computer appears to run normally for about 5 minutes, then begins to freeze, and eventually I can only move my mouse pointer accross the screen, then when I hit the mouse button, the mouse pointer freezes, and the computer begins to make a tone like I have a stuck key. Safe mode with networking works, but not either normal mode, normal mode with last safe startup, normal mode with a system restore from last week. I have the hijack this file and the malwarebytes report...please help! Thank you in advance for all your assistance.

sounds like faulty ram or a failing HD, or overheating.
If the PC has 2 sticks of ram, remove one and try. Then try the other one.

You may also want to try trojan remover and remove all it finds because malware can also have the symptoms you described.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
