    Hi, this is my first post, so i'm new here. I am running windows vista home premium 32 bit. I get random BSOD restarts and these can happen from about 20- 180 minutes from the time i boot up the computer. I have Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and IObit Malware Fighter installed, and i managed to run them all once, but just before the scans finished, the programs crashed. I have never been able to start any of the programs again since; every time i try, it just comes up with an error, reading: 'Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item'. And also, i noticed that my free hard drive space had gone down from 74gb, to 27 gb... i don't know whether that has anything to do with it, but i certainly havnt downloaded anything that size. Thanks :D
