I think you'll like it. It's a manual scanner, but has real time protection and autoupdating. It will find things Norton overlooks and is much easier on system resources. :blink:

I'll bet we can get it running good again, there's just a lot to look at when we go to make it quicker... :whistling:

Ok...

Download, install, and run WinAudit on the machine. Generate a report in Formatted Text format. Scroll down to "Startup Programs" (near the bottom) and Copy/Paste the entire box here for me.

I dont beleive it.. I installed Avast!, scanned, everythign was fine, deleted most of my documents, all the crap located in my desktop. Runs great for about 5 minutes, then it slows down worse than ever, then i get a DIFFERENT blue screen error, which restarted the machine. Now its just so slow, if i right click, it takes about 3 - 5 minutes for it to respond. Ill try download that program you mentioned.

Now my laptop doesnt even turn on, it will get to the part where it starts to load windows, and another blue screen comes and goes real fast, then it reboots and does it again. Safe mode doesnt run either, i get the same message with that. But occasionally it works, and i get a message (just as windows finishs loading):

STOP 0x0000007A (0xE18479EC, 0xC000000E, 0xBF849924, 0x03044860)

Then it restarts and does it again. Another issue that has come up is after i turn on the power, it will immediatly shut down. Also, it randomly shuts down at anytime during boot up.

I looked on google, and it mentioned something about booting up form the windows XP cd, so i did what many websites reccomended (put the boot order to CD first, then it will load the xp cd and you can fix it from there), and nothign happened, it continued to trty boot from the HD. I am really stuck with what to do next, i have tried everything. :whistling:

Ok...I'm leaning back towards hardware...memory in particular. Do you have a floppy drive?

Darn...I wish all machines still came with floppy drives... :whistling:

When you try to boot to Safe Mode, have you tried the option for "Last known good configuration"?

I have tried every option there, it just goes idle for about 15 minutes, then shuts down.

This is still pointing to hardware. When the machine begins to boot, does it "beep"? Does it beep more than once?

No beep at all. Also after about 10 minutes of the machine being on it gets quite hot, and after a while it gets VERY hot
