So here's what's going on:
Whenever I run games on my computer (ones that alter the resolution [maybe it's linked?]) they run for a few minutes before a quick flash of BSOD pops up and then the computer resets on it's own. I tried cleaning up my computer with AdAware and my Symantec Anti-Virus client and they also cause this same error. From what little information I can gather, I was at one point or still am infected by a virus called "Trojan ByteVerify" which is probably responsible for all this. I had quarantined the files for a while but then decided it would be better to delete them.
After these automatic resets my computer generally runs stable for a while (other times it just keeps resetting itself), however if I try to run a game or anything else again it'll either hang or reset in a far less amount of time. At this point I find it nessecary to turn the computer off entirely before doing anything with it again. Furthermore, the computer occasionally hangs while loading Windows and requires a reset. I've tried Error Reporting and I'm brought to this page: http://oca.microsoft.com/en/response.aspx?...f9a50315&SID=10 Since I assumed that there was a problem with my video card I went ahead and updated the drives on it and made sure all my Windows drivers were up to date. Still no luck.
It you need more info, I'll do what I can.
ps: Sadly I cannot post the contents of the Blue Screen report because it's only there for a few milleseconds before the computer resets. Though the other day I got one while shutting down my computer and it read:
0x0000000a 0x0000001c 0x00000002 0x00000000 0x804e844f
I don't know if it's related.
Thanks you for any help you can provide.
