    Hi,
    It would be helpful if you could please post the make/model and system specs of your computer & which operating system - looks like XP, is that correct?
    Tool for posting that info here is TSG System Information Utility - link to download on this page: http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

    Thanks.
    Richard

    Your PC maybe in other way has lots of virus. You may try cleaning your pc with an effective antivirus.

    You need to be protected with an Anti-Virus Program.
    Download an Anti-Virus Program - scan your Pc.
    Avira Free Antivirus
    http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
    Avast!
    http://www.avast.com/en-gb/index
    Microsoft Security Essentials.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/products/security-essentials
    Only one Anti-Virus program is needed of course.
    ------
    Download Security Check by screen317
    http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
    Save it to your Desktop.

    Double click the install icon.
    A command Prompt window will open.
    Let it scan the Pc - press any key when asked.
    It should now open in Notepad - and will save a log called checkup.txt.
    Post the result of the scan here.
    ------
    Download BlueScreenView
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
    Download link at the bottom of the page.

    Download > Install.
    Once it has scanned > Click on Edit > Select All > File > Save Selected Item
    It will open in Notepad - or save to Notepad > Copy > Paste.
    Then Post the last 5 minidump files

    Check this link first

    Hi, you still need to have an Anti-Virus Program installed.
    Also using uTorrent - can bring Malware onto your Pc.
