My problem is that Vista won't run for more than a couple of minutes before fatally crashing. I might be surfing on Firefox or using Word, and all of a sudden it doesn't respond to clicks anymore, and everything stays immobile. The only thing I have left to do is force a shut down by pressing the power button.
Sometimes it's able to show the desktop while it's in that that state, but that's all it can do. I can't even access the task manager, and if I'm lucky enough reach the start menu to have it restart, it won't obey the command.
I've tried virus scanning with AVG but it crashes halfway. SpyBot crashes halfway as well. Even Combofix crashed halfway too! (while attempting to create the log file). Running AVG in safe mode works fine but it says I'm virus free. I've done a defragmentation succesfully in safe mode, but it hasn't solved the problem.
What can I do now?
Your help is much appreciated,
