Grazazel, I think we need to have a look at the voltages that your power supply is putting out, as well as a couple other things:
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.

True, but let's assume they're good programs for the moment. Generally people don't install EVERYTHING at once. Let's look at other stuff first.
Well, you add programs to your HD once you format it right?
Only if you double-click on the infection that is on the floppy disk, etc. It would take a super intelligent infection to automatically activate after insertion. I've never heard of that...yet.
Is it not possible that viruses can transfer from floppy disks, etc?
I understand. I realize I jumped the gun a bit, but we've had a few "incidences" where someone tries to "help" with a malware issue and makes things worse. Sorry for being abrupt.
I'm just defending my point that I'm no idiot. Good luck
Grazazel, get that Speedfan info for me and we'll see if we can figure out what's going on. If I see nothing, we'll check eventvwr. And finally, if nothing there, we'll check a hijackthis log. If still nothing, we'll put your computer's hardware through some testing.

I want to make sure this is accurate, and not a sensor glitch. Open SpeedFan and watch your -5V (found at the bottom)
Tell me if it changes or not. And if it does change, approximately how much? You may have to watch it for 2 minutes in order to respond to me accurately.

So it is way beyond the limits. Your PSU is worn out and needs to be replaced.

I've never heard of that antivirus protector... Would you mind running an Internet scan for me? I suggest Trend Micro Housecall ...
NOD32 is very well known, especially in Australia.
As for your problems grazazel, try updating your ATI drivers. I know in Battlefront II, it kept freezing on me and locking me out until I updated my Nvidia drivers. Then it worked fine.
