It may be heat related. When was the last time you cleaned out the inside of your case?
Oh it's been a very long time. Not good, but I just don't do it like I should. I'm not even completely sure how to do it.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.
I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
Overheating tends to freeze the computer rather than shut it down. Computers with certain sensors and safeguards do shut the computer down when overheating though...so it is definately possible that is the cause.

Please download Speed Fan and install it.
Start Speed Fan. When it is fully loaded, take a screen shot of the first screen by pressing Print Screen/SysRq on your keyboard. Open Paint and paste. Save the screenshot as a JPEG and post it in a reply to me. Now click on the tab called S.M.A.R.T.. Select your hard drive by using the drop-down box at the top. Now take a screenshot of that as well. Post it in your reply to me as well.
NOTE: For certain computers, Speed Fan will not display accurate measurements. If the temperature wildly fluctuates or doesn't change at all, let me know, otherwise I will believe the mesurements are accurate.

Go to the site, click Download at the top. Look at where it says SpeedFan 4.28 in blue (towards the middle-left). Click on that. That is the dowload link.

1. Overheating This must be addressed or damage could occur I don't think this is your problem, but it could become your problem in the future.
Check all internal fans to make sure they are functioning. Clean out interior with canned air. Make sure the computer is not in an enclosed area, that it does not receive proper ventalation.
2. Hard drive errors The SMART data of your hard drive indicate many Raw Read Errors. Raw read errors mean that the magnetic media inside the drive is no longer capable of reliably storing information in that sector. In many cases, this leads to a cascade of data errors on the drive.
If you value your data, replace the drive now! Odds are this is the entire cause of your problem!
That's why I don't use Everest. It's not as useful as Speed Fan.

Don't wait until it's too late!
