So since last year, my computer has random BSOD or Reboots. Since it happens every few months, I just dealt with it. I dealt with the fact that I naturally had a old, crap computer. I assumed there was no viruses because my AV didn't pick up anything. Also used Malwarebytes or something with a similar name, since I can't remember off the top of my head.
By the way, a few weeks ago I downloaded XPThemes just to customize my desktop.
I followed these methods. How To Install Ux Theme Multi Patcher - Customize.org
(maybe this could shed some light?)
Then the other day, I google imaged a picture of Brock because I wanted to photoshop a "wanted list". One of the sites I went to, which ironically I used last time because it's the same picture gave me a trojan. According to AVG. I looked it up and people described an identical problem with me, which was they googled it. My AVG detected and I assumed it removed it, so I moved on with my life.
I also installed a recent Java update to my computer. That's when I noticed things were starting to get suspicious. My computer were starting to show signs of malfunction. When I use Google Chrome, I often get crashed from using sites like GameFAQs, Youtube and Facebook. Then my computer would reboot. I would also often get rebooted every 3 minutes, until I stopped the "restart on system failure message". I started to get BSOD. Then I took a break from the computer and went on my business. I then logged on again, then I immediately changed my desktop back to normal Windows themes and then finally got to get some time on the computer. At least more than 3 minutes. So I tried moving my files, then I stopped, then I got comfortable and thought maybe I fixed it and went on to my business of using the computer normally. I also decided to Quick Scan my PC with the Malwarebytes program and also did a Hijackthis scan and as it finished...
Computer went back to blue screen "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" or something similar was the code. So I restarted it. Cooked some dinner, then went to the log in screen. So when I'm at this point my mouse and keyboard work. Then I clicked on my admin user. Mouse is still fine. But when I enter a single keystroke, my keyboard and mouse somehow freeze. The screen itself didn't seem like it was freezing, because the "|" in the Text Box where it blinks for you to enter a password is still moving, so I'd assume Windows itself is not freezing. So right now that's my status. I really don't know what to do. Safe Mode is not working as it just gives me some scrolling filenames.
I'm on my laptop right now, so I'm able to type this. But I don't want to waste money on professional computer service, unless I have too. I'm a college student on a budget and I'm fresh off paying my fines and books. Anyway, hope I can get some help and insight on this.
