Hi my computer friends,

I usually try and fix any computer error's by Googling the crap out of it until I fix it myself as I hate to be defeated but I have a problem that just started about a week ago and wont stop.

I watch alot of movies online through streaming and recently the shows that i usually watch without a problem started taking alot of time to load and then as i start to play it freezes on me. What happens is I still hear the video but the picture freezes on me and then the browser starts flickering on and off the not responding. After it flickers and tries to fix the problem itself the screen goes black and computer shuts off then restarts. Im not sure what is going on but my whole windows 7 seems to be going so slow lately with slow startups as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I will try and follow any directions you give to fix this problem.

I could not attach the other file as my computer keeps restarting during the scan...sorry.

Also I have ran Malwarebytes a few times and removed anything it had asked me to as well as a checkdisk and system restore and nothing has worked. I believe it might have something to do with the dns host file but that is just a guess.



Here is also a copy of my HijackThis log

You've already posted your logs in the correct section, and must wait for a Malware Response member to pick up your thread and assist you from there.

This is a duplicate of your thread in the Malware Removal Forum.

<<I really dont think it is a Malware problem which is why I reposted this...sorry>>

If that is so...I'm curious as to why you have decided to post logs which are specifically used for dealing with malware and nothing else.

If you have a bona fide answer, you can just send me a PM. We don't have any choice (logically) but to assume that you have a malware problem...when you post malware logs.
