I'm posting for a friend who is having computer problems. I hope this isn't a problem.
(Tried to get her to sign up for an account, but no luck.) I'm not sure if these are symptoms of some kind of infection, or just a problem with her system. She's run her anti-virus program and scans for spyware, but these don't detect anything.
She's using Win XP on a regular PC, and she's had a series of recurring problems. It often just restarts itself without warning, like the power went out or something. When it restarts, she gets a blue screen that says to check on of her disks. It goes away and then goes to the windows logo. Sometimes once her desktop is up, there is a dialogue box that says something about privileged instructions, with the option to click OK.
I'm not sure what all the blue screen says exactly, as she has a vision problem, and her JAWS program doesn't read it.
Also when she's in Explorer, she gets another dialogue saying that the information she was working on may be lost, and has to close out.
