Every time I start my PC I get the " this machine has just recovered from a serious malfunction " message. I tried to copy and paste it exactly but it would not let me. The amount of time my PC stays on before it restarts itself varies. Anywhere form 5mins. to 2omins. This may be important, My buddy just installed a new Hard drive for me. Since I got this back from him I've been encountering this. I told him about it and he has no clue.

It looks like you have a virus, spyware, etc. There is a forum for infected computers, I suggest you past your Hijack This log over there first. :thumbsup:

I don't believe this warrants posting a HJT log.

Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the times that this is happening.

Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

One of the things that can cause this is overheating, look inside the case to see if there is an accumulation of dust, especially in the fan and heat sink on the CPU, if there is blow it out with canned air.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
