I can only start PC in Safe Mode. After opening a couple of programs (emails and internet) and leaving PC on for an hour or so can Restart normally and everything is fine. If I boot in SM and restart straight away PC freezes. (Black screen, blue screen, sometimes gets as far as desktop icons.)
Had problem for months now and tested as much as I know how to:
Ran sys restore, max 3 months back, did not help. But had problem then.
Ran Avast, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Adaware, Combofix, Dr. Webcureit. No reported problems.
Msconfig – disabled all startup progs other than Avast and NvCpl, Rundll.32.exe (Nvidia)
Chkdsk – No errors
Diskmgmt – all drives healthy NTFS (recovery Fat32)
eventvwr.msc /s Only error showing is DCOM code 10005 – It doesn’t run in safe mode
Ran memtest for a few hours 100% +++++ - 0 errors
The video card tester ran for a few hours well over 100% + Results not clear as it just said 'benchmark 44' which is pretty meaningless on its own. Just didn't wobble or crash which I assumed indicated it was ok.
Posted Hijack This and OTL logs to relevant BC forum - No evidence of Maleware. Suggested post to this forum. Have searched this and other forums for info but no success.
If anyone out there can help I would be most grateful. I would dearly like to sort this problem but am a relative novice who's run out of ideas.
