I have a laptop and a desktop with Vista. The laptop no trouble as most of what I do is on line. I do not run a business so it is emails, investments through Quicken, etc. The desktop has been cutting off this week about every other day. I am online answering a question a grandson posed to me and in the middle I hit a key and it killed the computer. This time the computer started up and said the binaries changed on my firewall so I am currently running Malwarebytes and will run also Spyware doctor and AVG. Honestly I do not believe anything will be found. Before I start buying Windows 7 and having it installed on the desk top, your thoughts please.
When I say it kills the computer it is like the power cord is pulled. The CPU stops running. Any help would be appreciated. Malwarebytes just stopped, no infection and I just started AVG.
