Hi all and thank you for any assistance you can give me. right now im on my partners pc which is windows 8. and a pain in the backside
Right ill start at the start.
on Tuesday last the computer did the Tuesday patch update and then boom pc crashed and wouldn't start up. so being my partner he loaded it up and seen a blue screen with the option to fresh restore and he clicked it. So the computer did a refresh and lucky he had everything backed up. it loaded up fine and he started to transfer all his files back on and then the pc crashes and starts all over again i get the Lenovo screen for about 30 mins it boots up but crashes again.
i open he case to check for dust no dust i start in safe mode run maleware spybot etc, but when i run Avast it stops at 3% and sits for ages and then crashes.
At this point ive had enough of his pc so i did a full install of windows 8 and it works yay great so i run maleware again find some things and clean the somethings. run spybot and all is good but then i try avast and yup stops at 3 % i left it running while i went to bed last night and woke up to it at 3%.
Have just run Dr web cureit and it didnt find anything. he hasn't even loaded his files back onto the pc.
ive uninstalled avast and installed it again and its still stopping on 3% i did notice though when its running the cpu is running at 100%
so im at my wits end as i dont know if its a virus that made his pc go boom and if its going to happen again when he brings down his files as if it does im going to be using this computer as target practice for my new hammer i will purchase.
the Computer is about 2 years old
any help on this would be great
