    Strange that you say the “screen of death” is caused by malware, tblount, but my system is clean & has been scanned by the like’s of spybot search & destroy, also microsoft security essentials, which both say the system is clean.

    I had the dreaded screen of death happen to me once & found out it was a buggy beta driver for my graphics card, which was soon resolved.

    My advice to anyone with this problem is to make sure all of your system driver’s are kept up to date.

    “Now Prevx has admitted that as well. On a company blog, director of research Jacques Erasmus admits that the Black Screen of Death is in fact caused by malware, not by the Microsoft security patch. He adds, “We apologize to Microsoft for any inconvenience our blog may have caused.”

    FixShell.exe file released by Prevx yesterday shows nothing obviously malicious. It contains a valid XML manifest, and a code certificate backed by VeriSign. And in fact, on our test system with Sophos anti-malware installed, not only did the file not appear to run any process of its own on startup, it did not appear to do what Prevx said it would do: make adjustments to the System Registry.

    Doesn anyone know what Fixshell.exe actually does?
