    My computer is restarting itself anytime it's scanned for viruses & spyware. It started just randomly and then started to becoming more frequently. now i can't even scan the computer. it seems that going into certain folders and on certain websites will conistently trigger the error. the error it states is "Driver has overrun a stack based buffer." I have thesame problems in safe mode when scanning the computer with AVG or Spybot S&D.

    Any one know where to start?
