Computer gets real slow and about every other time when shuting down get a "close program now" box pop up that has something like WNNotifyWND in the blue title bar. Sometimes the box flashes so fast it is impossible to read other times it lingers for a bit before the shut down process starts and the 'saving settings...' screen comes up.

I run Bullguard antivirus and firewall. When I tried to run it in safe mode it froze. When I tried to delete the temp files manually in safe mode it froze. When I pulled the hard drive and slaved it, I was able to delete the temp files, and scan the drive. Nothing was found. I pulled the mem simm before putting the HD back in as master. There was quite an improvement, but then the same started again.

I've scanned with super anti-spy, adanced system care, and microsoft safety scanner.

I can tell that something is running in the backround. but can't find it. It seems that something is monitoring what is happening on this computer.

Have also followed the other rec's for slow comp's

Hello,
I take it the scans came back clean.

Let's STOP the Reboot loop

When running Windows and it crashes and you get a blue screen of death( BSOD ) with an error message and it will automatically restart, Most times it restarts too fast for you to see and read the error message. We are going to disable auto restart on system failure. So the screen will stop and you can copy down the complete error message. then someone here can help you better.

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

I don't get the BSOD. After hitting turn off in the standby, turn off, restart box is when the small "close program now" box displays.

All scans clean. except some spyware.
