I have been having three problems lately, which may or may not be related, but all three issues started at or around the same time.
1. NT System\Authority has been automatically shutting down my system. It will typically occur a few minutes after startup.
2. The CD/DVD drive is no longer reading discs.
3. When I click on links from a Google search, I will often be re-directed to a site other than the actual link.
I first encountered the CD/DVD drive issue, and the NT System\Authority issue happened right after, then I noticed the Google re-direct issue.
To date I've tried a System Restore to the earliest date that was available before the issue started, and I have run several Malwarebyte scans. The first scan found and removed some items, but since then I've run subsequent scans that have not found anything.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
