Well, I am by far not a computer programmer and have not been able to find anything on the web to help me with this problem, so I landed here, hoping for help.
A few months ago, I had an error message called "CODE PURPLE" on my PC. I fixed that...... since then my PC just shuts down random disk drives and or hardware or processes. For example, I plug in my flash drive, go to my computer to access files, and there is no drive available until I restart my PC. This also happens with my printer, and my CD drive. Also. when I start my PC and check Task manager, there are usually 48 processes running, if I leave it for a few hours, and check it again, there will only by 20 something processes running.
Is this due to code purple? do I have a virus? I have Norton, that is up to date, ahve used HijackThis, and found nothing.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!
