    Alright here is the deal...I just upgraded my computer with a new set of 256 DDR ram chips. I also changed around some of the wires to clean up the inside of my case. When I rebooted the computer starts up and then will randomly shut down. It generally does it either when it loads the login screen or when it starts loading windows itself. It reboots even when in safe mode. I am not sure what the problem could be, however, when I finally got the comp to stay on for more than 10 seconds I made it into my firewall and saw that my computer had blocked a Deep Throat Trojan Horse. I am going to talk to my system admin tommarow to tack down the culprit using their IP, but I am still left with a system that is disabled. It seems to have uninstalled my virus checker as well as my firewall. Does anyone know about this trojan and the best way to get rid of it. If need be I am going to reformat but we'll see. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I get attacked by trojan horses about 50 times a day, an i keep my system allways clean from Ilegal programs, and *p0rn* . and have an antivirus software running.
    if i where you i whould check out your CPU temperature, there are many tools for that like Colmon.
