it looked differant from sceenshot,but this is what it showed...Vcore=1.24v..12v=12.9..5v=5.12..Vbat==3.20..5VSB=5.15...Thats all it showed + temps

 

The +12V rail is reading as being too high, this is in the BIOS when the computer is not under load and so is even more of a concern.

 

Not sure why Avast is being downloaded/saved to Ccleaner.exe  :headscratch:

 

If it is still being downloaded stop it then try this link, run it if it will let you.

Do you have a friend or family member with broadband who could download Avast to a thumb drive for you.

 

A +12V rail that is putting out too much voltage is basically frying the hardware, the higher that it is the quicker the computer will fail.

Don`t give up on this, more than one test showed the +12V rail to be ok.

 

Keep a check on the voltages with either HWMonitor or Speedfan, uninstall whichever one you do not use + Everest and any other testing software that we have now finished with.

 

Restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration, details here once done check to see if Microsoft Security Essentials is present and get back to us before you do anything else.

 

As an asides Tim, if your local library has an internet connection it would be possible to download Avast to a USB thumb drive there and then take it home to install on your computer.

Hello Tim

 

See link below;

 

The Golden Rule of Drivers: If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It

 

When possible I download drivers and save them to the desktop, uninstall the drivers that I need to update, restart the computer, install the drivers and then restart the computer as normal, it is not always possible to do it this way as some driver packages come with auto installers that remove the previous drivers and then install the newer drivers automatically.

 

Remember to always create a new restore point before uninstalling/updating drivers or making any other software changes.

Unless you are having issues that require a specific driver update to fix it you should leave well alone.

 

You should also keep in mind that as MS no longer releases security updates for XP that it is recommended that computers running XP should be disconnected from the internet or risk being attacked by malware or becoming the victim of hackers, as an asides Tim try the Autoplay Wizard from here for your CD/DVD problem.
