About two days ago, I was playing a game called warhammer online and the the game suddenly froze. This happened time to time so while I was annoyed, I didn't think it was too big of a problem. There were white lines going vertically and I couldn't tab out or close it, so I restarted the computer.

When I logged back into windows, about 10 seconds later my PC froze. Annoyed, I rebooted again. The same thing happened over and over and over again.

I logged into my brother's account, which also froze. I logged into safe mode, and it didn't have that problem. From safe mode I've tried to disable everything in the Startup, system restore, delete anything I installed that day (which was just AVG antivirus). Occassionally the PC will let me log in and use it as normal. Just now I logged in and it didn't freeze, so I clicked on firefox which didn't respond. I then clicked on my taskbar and it froze, while beeping loudly. I've also run my anti spyware program and it didn't seem to help.

I've never experienced anything like this. Could someone please give advice?

Hello hirow & welcome to GTG!

we will be needing some more information such as
If it is a name brand system:
Make and Model
Operating System
Age of the computer
Memory Total
Hard Drive Size, How much free space

If however , it is custom then we will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started

All of this information will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing...

Best of luck !

Please remove that hijacklog , this is not the place for them :)

If you think you have an infection head over to the malware forum

Start here : http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html

Work through step by step , saving all logs / results

Then go here : http://www.geekstogo...emoval-f37.html

Start a new thread/topic and ensure you include all information you have about he problem eg: anything you have done to try fix the problem and all the logs/results you have from the scan's

Thank You

You can attach log files , but generally only done when requested

BTW: I suggest you do go over to the malware forum ( From what i can see there maybe some badies in there... )

But i am not trained in that department , therefor i cannot assist you in the removal , Please follow above steps

Thank you for your co-operation

Once you have the all clear from the malware removalist , and you are still having problems have this topic re-opened

PS: Dont forget to give them a link to this thread , so they can have it closed... ( If you still having problems PM an admin and they can re-open the thread for you )

Best of luck !
&
Happy computing
