I've had this computer for several years. One time I left a dvd (the Royal Tennanbombs) in the computer one night after falling asleep. The next thing I know, my computer won't work right. The dvd somehow screwed it up...
About 3 years ago I had a friend wipe the computer clean and put the basic stuff back on but now it seem like there are some things not quite right with the registry. The reason I am addressing this problem now is because I didn't use it much after it was "fixed" and my current computer is messed up so now I'm using this one.

The main problems I have now is the screen will freeze up and I can't even move the mouse. I have to turn the power off and then turn it back on for it to work again. Also, I would try to use AVG and everytime, right after the scan would begin, the whole computer would shut off and reboot. Since I couldn't scan for viruses I uninstalled AVG and installed Avira. It ran the scan perfect and found 1 infection: TR/Trash.Gen Trojan. Avira healed the virus.

Another problem: It won't let me update windows!

Are there any good, free programs to use to fix this or at least find out what's wronge? Thanks

If you don't want to immediately go through reinstalling windows xp, I would suggest going here, reading through the instructions and posting your logs.

Hope this helps,
