Well it all happened yesterday. Wednesday night windows wanted me to install new updates so of course I did. Yesterday morning after a while the computer crashed. I thought nothing of it until 15 minutes later it did it again. I ran every virus and spyware scan software I had (Spy sweeper, and trend micro PC Cillin) It didnt crash any more that day until the night. I shut it off for the rest of the night and this morning it started crashing again in about 10 minutes space 3 times in a row. I did a system restore to the day before it started crashing and then windows wanted me to install updates. I manually installed them then restarted at the prompt and BOOM it crashed about 10 minutes later. I finally googled the problem and found this forum. I really dont know what to do and I wasnt running any games or anything when it crashed just browsing websites so I dont know what it could be. Also about 2 weeks ago I had to format because my computer would not start up right and was just messed up. My specs:
Pentuim 4 processer 550 with hyper threading
ATI RADEON X700 with PCI express and 256 MB
1 gig of ram
250 GB HD
I also have another problem, I recently after the format installed Ad-Aware but now after the crashes it gets to a bit over 2500 scanned files then freezes.
