Hello. I have been having a strange problem today when rebooting my computer. When I rebooted my PC, my desktop and icons would load, but soon as my MSN started to load, the window and cursor would freeze and the PC would restart... I then went into safe mode and disabled the processes that cause the lockup. Some of my programs work, some of them do not. I strongly belive the problem occured when I was using AVG anti-virus free edition 2 or 3 days ago. When I was done scanning for viruses I deleted them from the virus vault. Since I leave my computer on 24/7 to recieve messages from people, I decided reboot today. After I restarted, the problem started to occur. Is this a virus in action? or could this mean that, upon deleteing viruses, I accidentally deleted some vital system and .dll files that certain programs need? If you have any solutions or tips on helping with this issue, let me know. I strongly appreciate it :whistling:

Also if you need certain information, I'll try my best to get it without my PC freezing.
