My computer, windows vista 32bit last night had 11 updates. This morning something seemed wrong. Started the malwarebytes to run a quick scan and it froze and a blue screen popped up with computer had to be restarted with, I believe, potential danger, message on the screen. It was fast and I can not remember exactly what it said. While it was scanning, I did see there was 1 object found so far. The computer restarted and I started it normally again to try and run the scan again. Running it again I was watching to see if I could catch the file it found the object in. The computer has found 1 object and is frozen again in the file c:\ProgramData\Act\ActData\RegistrationData.xml 20 minutes later its still frozen.

This has happened before and it keeps coming back. Is there something else wrong?
