It seems to be since I uninstalled AVG and installed Avast but I;m not sure. For a few weeks now it has been taking along time to load up windows when I turn my Pc on. It also only seems to be when Im running programs or games also when I am playing games the FPS is considerably lower than usual. I followed some steps laid out in another forum and I think I did a "SF /Scannow" command in command prompt and it said there were some corrupt files and I think it fixed them Im not sure if that helps. Regardless the problem still persists
THankyou anyone who may be able to help me with this.
Ok just to add some more information, Im using firefox right now and watching videos and it doesnt seem to be crashing my pc. Also doing a virus scan on avast crashes the program and doing a scan on AVG crashes my pc. Uninstalling either also crashes my pc.
I went into repair mode after one of the crashes (it asked me if I wanted to on startup and it said it was recommended) and it failed to repair and said if I had any cameras or music devices connected to the computer I had to unplug them and retry, however I dont have anything connected video USB other than headphones, mouse and keyboard, and my Samsung exxternal E drive.
When the PC crashes it looks like it goes to a blue screen with lots of writing on and before I can read it my pc restarts and asks me if I want to run in safe mode.
My C drive has like 1.10 gb of space left on it, although I doubt it is an issue as I;ve been running my PC like this since I got it. It's only a 60gb drive so I have no idea what to uninstall to free up space I think most of the programs I use are on my external portable E drive
EDIT2: So I tested 4 games and 3 of them run really bad and crash, and the other game seems to be fine
EDIT3: do you think I may have damaged my hard drive? I knocked my pc the other day and it sort of wobbled on the hard wood floor
