Can someone please help me resolve these two issues.

My computer has been presenting a lot of "illegal operation, program will now terminate" messages. Most noticeable with Firefox and now Paintshop.

I tried to fix the issue with Firefox by updating to the latest version, but I feel that made the problem worse. So I have uninstalled the update and am running the earlier version I was using before.

Now Paintshop is doing the same thing (probably because I am using Paintshop more at the moment I am able to notice the issue in this program as well).

I am unsure if this other issue is related, but my computer is now randomly rebooting with no help from me. I can be working away and suddenly, the screen goes black, then the computer restarts?? No warning, no indication, just reboots on its own.

Any help, or a point in the right direction to related topics, would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

There could be several causes. Hmmmmmm. I would recommend following the Preparation Guide to posting a High Jack This log. You may not need to actually post a log, however. If you follow the instuctions in the Prepatory Guide faithfully then the offender may be removed and your computer may start acting correctly. However, rarely is a computer infected with only one thing.

If after completing all of the steps in the Preparation Guide you continue to have issues, post a HJT log as instructed in the Preparation Guide.


Again, there could be other causes, but I suspect an infection first.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
