    Any one know why my computer keeps resetting itself every now and then? It just does it randomly. Could it be my memory?

    could be a number of things.
    to see the error
    goto
    control panel>
    system>
    advanced tab>
    startup and recovery - settings>
    under the title - system failure
    untick - automatically restart

    now when it crashes the blue screen should stay on the screen
    post the info on the screen
    it will give the eroorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

    in the meantime
    you may want to try running a memeory test
    http://www.memtest86.com/

    you may also find some info in the event viewer
    control panel>
    admin tools>
    event viewer>

    One more thing that just started happing recently. It is now starting to freeze up on me to where I have to manually restart it. As soon as I get done writing my java program for school I will run the memory test. I started it to see what it would be like and it was showing some errors already. I will post the results as soon as I can. Thanks for all the help.

    If its freezing up - lets have a look at spyware
    post a hjt log

    HIJACK THIS:
    Try not to reboot
    Currently the Spyware identified by the security experts and especially the morphing and breeding .exe`s in the new variants of CWS, after every re-boot required by Ad-Aware and Spybot etc, just spawns more and more files for the poster to find and delete. This is making the advice the security experts give just too hard to follow.
    One of the security experts recently had one log with over a hundred files, they guy had to format c: drive.

    Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

    Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

    http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
    http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/downloads.html
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
    http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy (this has an older version 1.97 - if you can not get to any of the above sites)

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
    Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
    Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.

    I currently do not have the skill/competence to advise and poor advice can be far more damaging to your PC with this software, and so I will be unable to add any advice on the log and so will nolonger be replying to your post with regards to the HJT issue, so please have patience and wait for one of the secruity experts to provide further detailed advice

    i will however, be notified when you post the log

    OK I went ahead and posted it to the security forum. I use spy sweeper religiously and I have the newest one out. I also do updates every night but you never know what can slip by.

    I thought that those should not be running but never looked into it. They were always busy doing something in the background. That could be why windows loaded up so slow. I turned them all to manual load. Thanks for the post Rollin' Rog.

    I hope that resolves it. I don't see any "malware" to speak of in the Scanlog, so it is some configuration issue no doubt.

    You're welcome for the thought.
