Heya. =)

I run Windows Vista on a Sony Vaio laptop. This morning when I was running my NOD32, my laptop locked up suddenly and windows popped up with a message that it 'could not respond' and so I shut it down. I rebooted, it was really, really slow to start up... and then it froze again, and so I rebooted. Things loaded fine that time, save for being slow, and I then updated SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes. I ran MalwareByes, it showed nothing was wrong. I then ran NOD32 again. Around 93 percent done, I noticed that it showed 4 infected files and then it froze-lockedup-crashed again. Again with the rebooting dance and the computer freezing/being really slow on startup.

I went into Safe Mode this time, ran SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes, both came back with nothing found. I went into regular mode... ran NOD32... and around 93 percent again it showed 4 infected files, then froze up, and crashed.

I'm worried, but I don't know just what might be causing this. Any help would be appreciated.
