I really need some helpful advice. I am also a newbie so info I can understand would be great too.
I am running XP and my computer for no apparent reason will switch itself off and restart and give me a dialog box at restart that says my computer has recovered from a serious error. When I try and see what data it has recorded it always appears in my temp folder (or at least I think that's what it means).
When I am surfing on the net I will also be taken back to the desktop and another dialog box appears to tell me that Internet Explorer had performed an illegal operation. This also happens with Firefox.
The other day I was trying to type up an assessment for class when the same happened in Word.
This is getting very annoying. It is now just a matter of how many times it will happen in one sitting on the computer instead of will it happen!
I have defragged, Adawared and cleared cookies and check for viruses. I don't know what else to do.
