+ my virus scanner or antivirus program was not good and was expired / not working...
yesterday is was trying to find a file that I could download for my brother so he could play a game without cd.
I downloaded it and then i extracted the file, then I wasn't paying attention and there was asked for me to grant permission to run it. After I accepted the computer suddenly crashed resulting into a black screen and a shut down computer. I totally freaked out, i thougt all my files were lost so i reboot and tried normal mode-> 1th time got me blue screen IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL after 1 min when the computer was fully started up. So I started it again but then in safety mode-> no blue screens nothing. Then I started thinking about what caused this: it can be 2 things : 1. that file i downloaded = virus / trojan / other evil creation and now automaticly runs when i startup com and generated blue screen. OR 2: hardware malfunctions, 2 months ago I also had blue screens but then after reinserting my memory it went fine (already did it 2 times). So my thoughts are going out to a virus/trojan/ from the downloaded file. Never the less i tried to start again in normal mode and yes after 1 min blue screen IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Then i started in safety mode with internet options trying to download any virusscanner who could sweep the virus away-> did not work. Then i downloaded it from from other laptop ( where I am on right now) and tried to insert it with usb, but only after 1min he errors again blue screen-> IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. So i couldn't possibly install it before the com crashes.. I tried couple times more with same results and same errors.. Please help.. My computer is my everything for my study. But it is useless right now.. I hope someone can enlighten me.
*note: the errors all occur after typed down my password and see the desktop screen with all icons.
Thank you very much.
OK 5 min after i wrote this I tried to start the com up again, I tried 3 times:
1. first time -> after 1 min blue screen without a 'name to it like IQRL_NOT_OR_LESS' but the technical information at the bottom was saying this:
***Stop: 0x0000001E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005,0xFFFF800026EFEFD,0x0000000000000000xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF)
+ there was a strange noise coming out of my speakers (NOT THE INBUILD IN COMPUTER)
2. Second time -> 1 min after typing password and startup -> Frozen screen , nothing responses and needed to shut down manually
3. 3rd time -> 10 sec after typing password and startup -> blue screen with the line : SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXEPTION
4. Last time I tried NOTHING OCCURS and my computer is now on and doing everything -> Still the question is after shutting it down will the errors come back and what is wrong with my computer-> NOTE that my computer makes far more noice then when i first bought him for 2 months now -> dusted it all still noise like vacuum cleaner.
But I dont think thats the real problem when i read other posts I am thinking more and more of a hardware problem and the acces of that file was just a coincidence. Please help, im confused!
Thanks in advance
