I use Firefox as my browser so should be pretty safe from spyware etc, am up-to-date with AVG and scanns are clear. Spybot and Ad Aware are clear and Spyware Blaster protects me the odd occassion I use IE.
I'm getting some real probs with system freezes, auto reboots, etc. Also having real problems with windows seeing the SATA drive. The SATA card seems to be detected fine but no sign of the drive.
There doesn't seem to be any proper pattern to the crashes, can be soon after boot up or after a while of use. No pattern as to the programs being used, can be anything, Firefox/Thunderbird/IE/Open Office/Dreamweaver/etc or while no use.
I'm starting to wonder if it's a hardware problem but am not sure. No new hardware has been installed for several months and all had been running smoothly. Any suggestions on where to start looking or what to try?
