Hi sagar2201,
Welcome to GTG.
If u suspect a malware infection start here.

If u want to disable the "Windows Messaging Service"
Type "services.msc". Press Enter.
In the right pane. Double click on "Messenger", change its Startup Type to Disabled

sounds like a case of spyware/adware.....below is a link for a free spyware/adware remover.....Download ...Install...Run....Update definitions...then scan computer and watch the magic.


If you still crash randomly after scanning...could be a heat issue.
