Posted 10 July 2009 - 04:45 PM

Last week my computer started randomly crashing at different intervals. This happened before when I bought my computer and I found out it was because of faulty memory. I had my memory replaced, and I ran MemTest several times to ensure that the problem is fixed.

As mentioned earlier, this week my computer started crashing. Usually when the computer crashes, I would have Firefox and Adobe Flash opened. Since last week, I have not been doing anything really unusual or installed any new software. I have started using Folding@Home again (I have not used it for about half a year), and I also have once again started using Adobe Flash (I haven't used it for about three months). Earlier today, when I went to turn on my computer, it froze when trying to start Windows. I restarted it and it froze again right before it started to load Windows. I also received a warning from AVG saying that my computer is infected with Tracking cookie.Dealtime, but I think this is an unrelated incident.

EDIT: I also want to add that my computer also stutters every now and then. For example, I would be scrolling through an article on Firefox and my computer would freeze for about ten seconds. I can tell it is frozen because I have a digital clock widget on my desktop, and the seconds would stop for about ten seconds. This tends to happen quite often (usually several times an hour).

EDIT: I have also noticed that Firefox is using a lot of my processing power (I am checking under the Processes tab in Windows Task Manager and it says that Firefox is always using at least 90%). I usually only have two Firefox windows opened, each with about 5 - 6 tabs. I am usually looking at text based websites such as forums or articles. I don't know if this is a related incident.

I think I have found the problem to my problem. My friend came over and took a look and is pretty sure it is because my CPU is over heating.
