Hello, a year ago I installed PC-cillin on my computer. When I tried installing anti-virus updates for PC-cillin my computer would crash (Ii still got the updates installed somehow). I didn't even worry about it back then. Shortly after labor day I installed Service Pack 3(It was from Microsoft), and it seemed like ever since then my computer crashes on any given moment. It usually crashes right on startup or shortly after startup. And when it crashes, it would crash multiple times in a row.

When I was installing Service pack 3 my computer crashed and I had to reinstall it. Is there any way I could get rid of the random crashing.
Thanks

P.S. It still crashes when I do virus update, but i'm not too worried about that.

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors at the time of the crashes.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

and some will say,

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

Post back what it reports.

I think it gave a report but when the scan completed, but it quit so fast I didn't get to read anything. So far no errors.

Go Start > Run and type "eventvwr.msc". Select Application on the left side and in the right panel check in the source column for winlogon. This has the details of the checkdisk.
