If there's stuff that's messing with your browser or internet experience, such as added ads or popups, go see if you have any malicious addons. Get Malwarebytes or AVG, use task manager to see if you can end any malicious looking processes, and if things really go south, ask your tech friends before you ask people like Geek Squad. It's hard to pinpoint everything even with your explanation, but I'm sorry your computer is going haywire. pale

Get Malwarebytes and AVG asap (you don't necessarily need both, but it's better to be safe). Both have a free trial period, so google them and download from the first NON-SPONSORED link.

Protip: AVG has a free version that isn't a trial. Doesn't cover firewalls and other various PC fixes but covers all the malware that AVG Internet Security does.

Did you fix your problem? I remember the first time I had this problem, my PC was shutting down on its own and lots of processes were running trying to work up my CPU. I said screw it, factory reset. and then I started taking security seriously, and I stopped letting anyone use my comp.

I remember when my computer was basicly hijacked by a plethora of trojans and the like, which had to be removed manually! I was really stressed but after googling and following advice, which consisted of downloading a number of antivirus programs, the problem was fixed.

Good Luck Man.

Off Topic: DAW!!! Where have you been man?

Well the problem is almost fixed, but I can't seem to download avg because when it starts downloading, it stops and says error, and I try to keep redownloading it,but it keeps saying error. I was able to download malwarebytes, but I can't scan the computer with it, it keeps saying "malwarebytes isn't responding or not working" and shuts down. Any suggestions?



Off topic- I also have a gamecube, I bought it at a garage sale, and got some games with it, including Smash Bros Melee, and I love Dr. Mario!!!

Go to the folder where Malwarebytes is installed (at least in Windows 7, it's C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Antimalware or something like that if you didn't change it), and rename the file named mbam to firefox - it's the .exe, so mbam.exe becomes firefox.exe. Then run it. It actually worked for me.
If you're not finding it, try to find a shortcut, right-click it, then click "Open File Location" (or "Properties" -> "Open File Location").

I believe this happens because there's something on your PC that recognizes you're trying to execute antimalware software, doesn't let it execute correctly and then tries to 'fool' you into thinking it was just a normal program error. That's why not even reinstalling it will solve this. I'm just guessing though.

Well, when it does open (I'm sure it will, I had the same problem once), do a scan with it, remove anything it finds, then try to download AVG again. Don't forget to rename the mbam.exe file back too. I hope this helps Smile

Just moved with my roomate and it's great so far. However I have somewhat neglected Uni and need to devote more time to it. Working out with friends twice or once a week, playing games (Sacred, Total War Mods, SMBX, Crusade) and cooking pasta everyday.
