Please review this, as I have been forwarded as it appears to be a hardware issue:

Hi Clfarrar,

I am not an expert but do have alot of experience with computers in general.  I have read your posts in the malware section and saw you did reinstall windows.  I have had a similar issue with a computer i was reparing for someone.  While you wait for someone to answer in the forum have you tried to clean out the inside of your computer with some compressed air ?  At least in my experience the inside sometimes gets dusty and the fans going across the video card can sometimes  stop working causing some of the issues you have been explaining.  I built a computer for a friend and hers kept freezing up just as you explained and drove me crazy it would work for like 15 min at a time then freeze.  I opened her case cleaned it out and found the video card was burning hot because the fan had stopped working i ran a house fan over it and it worked, i then replaced the card and she hasnt had a problem since.  Not sure if this would solve your problem but it may be worth a try to check until someone here can maybe give you some more trouble shooting advice.

Please download and burn to a CD the following SeaTools for DOS, and then go into the BIOS and change the boot priority to CD-ROM and perform the extended tests on your hard drive.
