Then today, my Open Office suddenly stopped opening Powerpoint files. This was swiftly followed by a Blue Screen of Death, which when restarted went straight to a second Blue Screen. Safe to say, I am now in Safe Mode with Networking enabled. I'm running Ad-aware right now as well. On a side note, while in safe mode I seem to be unable to run Windows Installer and to update Symantec Anti-Virus, Ad-aware and Spybot to their newer versions (though updated definitions for the last two did install). I'm not sure if this is a feature of Safe Mode or not.
ETA: Ran Ad-aware and Spybot, and the issue seems to have fixed itself. Thanks anyway!
