I am new to this forum so I apologize if this question has been raised. I looked around some and I am still not sure what to do or what the issue is with my computer problem.
I am running Windows Vista with Trend Anti-Virus and Webroot Spy Sweeper. My father had told me that his computer was hit with an trojan. I did not think too much of it until I realized that my computer was acting up. The problem that I am having is that my monitor keeps blacking out and stays that way for about 30 sec. and then comes back on. When my computer goes to the screensaver and then eventually goes to sleep mode, it will wake up on its own after about 5 or 10 minutes.
So far, I have had no problems with opening emails. I don't open anything from users that I don't know. If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciat the help.

Thank you!

Welcome to BC bmarshall2270

Did you perform scans with your anti-virus and Spy Sweeper? Did they find anything? If they found nothing, then from what you describe your issue does not sound like a malware problem.
