I would go to symantec.com and download the sasser fix tool. It is possible that you already have it. Or google for McAfee Stinger, and run that. It will find the sasser, trojan, and 40 other viruses and worms.

I believe the problem is your choice of color scheme! I have a theory that XP and other MS products have a built feature that gives ppl with weird choices in color schemes as much problems as possible. I'm in the middle of writing a paper on this. I think I'm on to something!

Your conspiracy theory here isn't that far off. A similar thing happend to me, and a boot of XP Pro crashed because of colors. I designed a bunch of XP themes, boot screens, and icons just to see if I could one night. I am part of the micorsoft retail program. I got an email, saying if I wanted to try the beta program of service pack 2 I would get a bunch of points that can be redeemed for free stuff, and would be entered to win a whole bunch of laptops, PDAs, and cell phones, so I did it. After service pack 2 loaded and my PC rebooted, my theme was gone. I went to my apearance menu, and relaunched my favorite theme, but they all were destroyed. I loaded it, and everything was black on black. I couldn't change the theme back even by doing it from memory with the keyboard. I had to load XP pro on another hard drive, and slave the the other drive to get all my stuff off it. All because of colors.

Anywho sorry Tate I have never sceen anything like what is going on with you. I put up your link and post in a bunch of my nerd forums, and they had no idea either. The ony ideas I heard that seem feasable is if you have a firewall that you created a constant rule against that format or you downloaded something that attacked a windows file in your registry.
