As the topic title says, I keep getting logged out at random. Sometimes I am at my computer, sometimes not. If I am at my computer and it tries to log me out i quickly log back in as soon as I see the log on screen and then it will log me off again with 10 seconds. Logging on again after this works but often resizes all my windows to their absolute minimums which usually means I can only see the minimize, restore and close buttons. It can also cause my processes list in task manager to be reduced from around 50-60 processes down to around 10-20 and everything seems to slow down to a crawl. Restarting fixes slowness problem until the next log off incident. The time between incidents is completely random but I would say it happens at least twice in a 24hr time period.
The last 2 days I've also had the computer 'freeze' but not in the traditional sense where you can't even move the mouse. It lets me do a minor few things such as switch between tabs in firefox and move floating windows around but if i try to click anything else like a hyperlink or the start menu or (if i have the start menu already open) a program shortcut, absolutely everything freezes except for the mouse. I have tried leaving it for about an hour and nothing had changed. As a happy(sarcasm) alternative to the 'freezing', the monitors and sounds just switch off. A hard reboot is required to fix this problem.
I have scanned with avast in safe mode and MalwareBytes trial (in regular windows mode) and both found no problems. I made sure they were both up to date before the scan.
Yesterday I was going to try a system restore but the oldest restore point available was only a few days ago and the problem started before that. Today I just looked again and the only restore point is from today...
