hi guys, having some weird problems with my computer... can't figure out wat is wrong...

My computer constantly resets itself after a while. At first it randomly resets after i start a torrent download using BitTornado and have since changed to BitComet. But after the change, i've noticed that it constantly resets 60sec after i execute BitComet client program. And this 60sec reset is a sure thing... I've timed it too. And my com doesn't reset as long as the client isn't activated.

Perhaps someone can help me try to isolate where the problem might be coming from? I'm currently using Windows XP SP1.


Just to add on, I've already scanned using Ad-Aware and NAV, with both coming out clean. Perhaps it's a malware issue?

It could very well be malware.

Does bit set up temp files? If so, delete them.

After you're sure there's no malware remaining on your computer you need to install SP2 and then the other 8 critical updates that Microsoft made available this week.

I suggest yop do some web based scans:

online trojan scans here -
Web based online Antivirus and anti-malware scans: (these can be run regardless of whatever else you are using. You must use Internet Explorer to run these.)

Kaspersky Anti-Virus Web Scanner

Windows Security Trojanscan

Panda Activescan (IE only)

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner

I assume you have an Anti-Virus program updated and running.
