I appear to have several things gong on.
First, starting at the end of January, my computer began dinging. The ding is like when you try and do something the computer wont let you do and it normally pops up an error message, except in this case, there is no message. It shuts down different things in my computer. For example, after about a minute of having the computer on, the volume control stops working. After that things like the internet itself simply stops responding. Usually the internet stops working about every 45 minutes to 2 hours, and I have to reboot. The dinging comes at random, but as often as several in a second, or one every five or ten minutes. There appears to be no pattern, but they don't stop at a certain number.
Next, scvhost.exe is running at 99% every time we play our games. I do know that it is a program needed for running the OS. We play both Perfect World international and Uncharted Waters Online. CTRL + ALT + DEL and ending the task will stop it, but speeds up the shutting down of the computer. It also ends our games after a minute or two, but they can be restarted without any problem if we catch it before it heats up my processor enough to shut down the computer.
Last, I appear to have some sort of virus. I ran Spybot and avira without success. The program (labeled bswecovu) runs on startup under msconfig, and I unchecked it and rebooted, but it had been checked again. I found it running in my processes and ended process and unchecked it, and it appears to have not reloaded itself, however the program is obviously still there. Avira and Spybot haven't found anything, and I don't know how to get rid of it forever as I am somewhat computer illiterate.
I have a black computer, and that is what I know about computers. . .
One last thing. I have been considering simply reloading, however we have moved 6 times in 4 months, and for the life of me I can not find my Windows disk, and I don't know anyone with a windows disk, so I can't just reload.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
