Does this sound "Viral" or "hardware" to you?

    Hi Guys n Girls,

    As from the thread title, I'm not sure where I should post this one ATM. I'm suspecting a virus, but the symptoms may well be 'hardware" as well.

    Basically, my system will, occasionally, take a few attempts to boot. What happens here is, it starts to boot, then just turns off midway. Some days no problems other days..grrrr! Other days it will boot up fine but then for no apparent reason, it will close all apps and turn off. Just as if you had held the power button in for a few seconds. Could run all day...may only last minutes before shutdown. Boot it again and it may run for ??????
    For the most part it runs OK so I'm hoping it's a power supply issue.

    Have run the usually AVG and malware programs, nothing really drastic shows up.

    So what's your thoughts? VIRUS or not???

    Kind Regards
    Dave

    Hi Guys n Girls,
    Had a day off work today so got to have a bit of a play and monitor the PC all day without others rebooting and stuff. Shut itself down and tried to reboot itself on a couple of separate occasions. Came up with a reboot error suggest the PC may be overclocked etc. Sorry didn't write down, thought I'd do that next time. Typically it hasn't done it since.

    All programs and apps appear to be working as they are supposed to, it just powers down whenever it feels like it.

    Now I'm thinking it's a virus in there somewhere. HJT file here............

    Regards Dave
