Please note this is on windows xp:

I have AVG 7.5 Virus Protection. Here's the messages I get daily after scans:
Error Messages on regularly received AVG for a few months
File Result Boot Sector of Disc Change (this one's new as of a week or so ) Shell32.dll Change

As of this week- I can't Start defrag. - I do regular maint. all the time: Empty art files, Disc Clean-up. and the defrag. Also, when the computer decides to just shut down by itself and re boot sometimes ( not everyday) sometimes I get a blue screen with a LONG message that talks about boot sector and computer dumping memory - then I hard boot and it goes away. It's a long message. Doesn't appear that I've lost any memory at all but it's taking longer to open certain things. Do you know how to fix this?

I also forgot to mention one other thing,when the system reboots (all the time) I get a black screen saying: Hard drive operating outside normal specs....I press F1 and it restarts windows.
