Yesterday, my computer started randomly shutting down when I would use certain programs. So, I went through and started a scan of Avast! Anti-virus, and Spybot: S&D to which both programs would freeze the computer completely. Even tried running them in safe mode, and got the same problem. They would scan, and at some point would stop completely in their tracks.
A friend recommended picking up Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, so I downloaded that upon his recommendation, and found that the same issue had taken hold. A few times, when the computer would reboot, it would put me into the CHKDSK toggle, and I ran it to fix the errors. Yet there are still problems.
Any help would be just wonderful.
My computer is a Gateway Netbook with Windows XP and 150gb hard drive.
