Ok, first of all, I'm not even sure how im able to be on my computer typing this at the moment.
Explanation? sure. I'm fairly computer savvy. My computer has been freezing completely about 5-15 minutes after
I start it, high-cpu/gpu strain or not. I have run combofix on my computer a few times before and everything has turned out well.
So I disabled my security, (avast, malwarebytes, and ad-aware) and set off. The first thing that it did was tell me that it was out of date and update itself. Then it ran through it's 50 processes. Afterward, i saw a text line that caught my attention. It said:
Of course this scared the bleep out of me, but i had faith since i had run it before with no problems. I let it continue, and eventually it rebooted the machine itself as usual. Only problem: When I got to the log on screen, i input m password and it showed the welcome message. Then my backround turned black, which led to a BSOD. So now I'm scared bleepless. Once again, I have misleading faith in it. I restart the computer, each time with the same result. the only difference was two things. one, the error paths began to change, and two, one time i got through the black screen for a few seconds to see combofix pop up on my desktop. It was jumping around, however, like it was trying to stay open but getting closed repeatedly. after that, i tried the system restore point that combofix created at the beginning of it's scan to no avail. Then I tried the only other restore point i had. thankfully, it was from about a week ago. Now I am miraculously onto my computer typing this so that i can get it fixed before my comp crashes again. It isnt repeating the 5-10 min crashes, as it has taken at least 30 mins to type this. I still cant enable Avast's shields. I am updating my windows defender definitions right now, and checking my windows firewall. please assist me before I have to buy a new computer...
