    Blue Screens, Abnormal Things

    Things started to get more strangely from now on. Windows is taking up 2x more time to start up now, my computer has lag, files are taking longer to load and I received 3 blue screens with the same error: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

    Upon searching further I found out this could be because of a virus: Error message: "Stop error code 0x0000001E (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED)" in Win32k.sys or a "Stop error code 0xC000021A" (Quote: This behavior can occur if you downloaded the Backdoor.NTHack virus from a remote host into your computer. This virus is initiated by the Dl.bat file in the InetPub\Scripts folder.)

    I fully scanned my PC with BitDefender Total Security 2013 and Malwarebytes, deleted registry issues with CCleaner, but no such virus was found.


    Solved: It was BitDefender's fault.
