Recently, my computer has been crashing randomly. Sometimes it will just shut off, other times I'll get "The Blue Screen". I don't know if this sounds more like a hardware or software problem so any help as to what I should do from here would be great.

I ran a hijackthis scan. Would posting that log help? I also ran a malwarebytes anti-malware scan. It showed as there being infected files but I'm not sure if they are completely taken care of.

the event viewer information would be more helpful as it tell exactly what errors are showing

just curious how much RAM does this system have? I have a theory and would like to compare.

Post back how much RAM you have and we will go over a few things.

Alright, so I found the event viewer log, but I do not know how to post that information. I was hoping it was just a matter of copy&paste, but it isn't. Also I have 2 GB of ram.

P.S. The topic for this forum is a typo, I meant to write "Vista" not "visting". Sorry about that
