About a month ago I got a random screen(blue?)telling me my computer was going to shut down to avoid damage. It did exactly that, but it seemed okay when started next. Last week, howevever, I started having problems again. First, it seemed like my computer was just being slower than normal. Then I noticed that when I had more than one window or tab open, I would start getting not responding messages. I would try to fix the not responding problem by utilizing task manager, but that doesn't always work. Sometimes I end up having to shut the computer off with the on/off button on the tower and restarting. Even when task manager did work, it would be very slow. Also, in the last week, disk check has run twice.
I downloaded OTL but I can't get it to complete a scan. I always get the not responding message. After trying 3 times, I realized it seemed to stop in the same spot: C:\Windows\sysWOW64\mprmsg.dll
I also downloaded Malwarebytes. Again, I can't get a scan to complete...always get the not responding message.
Here is some info that may be useful:
My computer is an HP - model p334f - only 8 or 9 months old
System type is 64-bit
Processor Intel® Corei3CPU 2.93 GHZ
RAM 8.00 GB
I hope I posted in the right thread. If not, please let me know and I will move this post to the appropriate thread. Any help is much appreciated.
