    Yes. Restart, and by that time I'll ask you to do something else.

      okay, every time i run this, it says I am out of memory.  So I open task manager and it says i am using all 4gb of ram.  What is this about?  So when it says I don;t have enough memory, it shuts down.

      Hmmmm....I have no clue.
      Does it happen, when you try to open the program?

        i can open the program just fine, but when it runs for a minute or so, it uses all 4gb of ram, says it is out of memory, then shuts down.

        Are you able to set that filter thing?
        If so, running it for a minute will give us a lot of info, if you're bale to save the log.

              I saw all your logs, and they're all clean.
              I asked evil to lock that thread.

              Very, very puzzling, sir.

              I'd like to see one more log....

              Download avz4.zip from here
              • Unzip it to your desktop to a folder named avz4
              • Double click on AVZ.exe to run it.
              • Run an update by clicking the Auto Update button on the Right of the Log window:
              • Click Start to begin the update
              Note: If you recieve an error message, chose a different source, then click Start again
              • After the update, from the "File" menu, choose "Standard Scripts"
              • Put a check next to item 2: Advanced System Investigation
              • Click Execute selected scripts
              • At the next prompt, click the OK button
              • Let the scan run and click "OK" when the completion prompt pops up
              • Now Close out of the Standard Scripts window, and exit AVZ
              • Navigate to the avz4 folder and locate the folder LOG
              • Inside the LOG folder you will find virusinfo_syscheck.htm and virusinfo_syscheck.zip
              • Attach the compressed file, virusinfo_syscheck.zip, to your next reply.
