    Odd crash

    Now my system has been fine for days now, since I isolated a problem with my raid drives. Anyway, I just uninstalled my ATi drivers and rebooted, I installed the drivers and rebooted again. When I got back into windows after installing the drivers I went straight to the task bar as soon as it appeared and I started trying to get into my start menu - now I have a custom theme on that required altering explorer.exe (well, not altering just disabling it I think, as right clicking on icons in the start menu/programs does nothing now. Now my PC hard locked - and I'm thinking that it was because I was so impatient - as my AV stuff hadn't loaded and it hadn't even found the other AVstream thingy. Could that be it? Everything else seems fine and I reset it and everything has loaded fine...

    You think thats weird? My PC will occassionally just reboot itself, the last time i had task manager running at the time and noticed it was running at 100% for about 10seconds before it rebooted itself, i checked the temps to see if the system was overheating and the cpu was running at about 34C, lol, its happened about 3 times in the last 5 months or so

    Yeah I guess computers do weird things sometimes. As I said - its been running fine for days so I'm inclined to think it was just a one off thing due to me trying to do things before windows was ready.

    random reboots generally a psu issue.

    I think i had a virus that made my pc do this once too.

    well i've got AVG Internet Security, that hasnt really picked anything out of the ordinary up and its not long had a complete wipe/reinstall, i certainly hope its not the psu, after spending over £100 on an FSP 700w PSU from scan just 6 months ago =/

    still i would not rely on 1 av.

    try using some other scanners such as nod32, bitdefender xoftspy, adware.
