Right - this is now the third time I have to retype my entire problem - why does my thread keep getting closed or deleted??

Keith helped me on saturday by giving me a list of things to do - prefetch, disc clean up, disc defragmentation and sfc/scannow....

When i managed to finally do the sfc/scannow, windows didnt prompt for the cd so i guess it didnt find anything wrong.

The latest is - the crashes seem to happen during the night when pc is not in use. In the morning I come through and the rebooting is in a loop....every minute. I quickly managed to get the following error before it rebooted - 'services and controller app encountered a problem and needs to close'. So I tell it not to send the report then the countdown to shutdown begins. Open command line and type shutdown -a to abort and it stops the countdown window but still reboots a few seconds later.

This morning, I cannot get it to stop......its constantly in reboot loop -- please any suggestions!!!???

Thanx Richp but it seems its not the worm however my hubby is convinced it is virus related.

Perhaps I will try the malware forum and see what they suggest - maybe a hijackthis will show something - I give up !!

Thanx anyway

you need to post only one thread....you have three threads on the same topic, which makes it very difficult to help you

Hi charrup:

Just a gentle reminder to you and others that the Search function at the top is very helpful in locating not only other member's posts, but your own. Just use the "Filter by Member Name" search function. It has saved me countless times.
