I left my Windows 7 PC on overnight (with lots of apps left open - mainly development IDEs & web browsers). It has latest virus scanner and latest Windows 7 updates (auto-updates).
It shouldn't lock when idle.

When I came back in the morning, the PC was locked. Fair enough.
When I unlocked it, lots of apps were crashing. Then I looked at the clock:

Anyone have any idea why this happened?

I would suggest either posting in the Am I Infected forum, or (if not infected), then post over in the Windows 7 forum for more expert advice.

 

Regretfully, I can no longer afford to spend time analyzing systems with Windows 7 and earlier OS's.

My suggestions for those who have problems with W7 and earlier are:

1)  Perform a "clean" install of Windows to see if that stops the problems:  http://www.carrona.org/canned.html#clean
This is different from a simple reinstall - it tries to only use Windows components.  Please read the steps at the link above.

2)  If that doesn't stop the problems, then first try these free hardware diagnostics:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html 
If all of the hardware diagnostics pass, try this procedure (designed for desktops, not real easy for laptops):  http://www.carrona.org/strpdown.html

Good luck!
