If this topic is not in the right section, sorry. I couldn't find a section that I thought would fit this more then this section. I have had my computer for 2 years. In the last 2-3 months it has been acting strangely. It randomly gets very slow. Sometimes it is because svchost.exe PID 1560 is using up 99% of the computer. Then sometimes it just goes slow, for no reason it seems. I have tried many anti-virus software but it I never find any virus'. I have tried several types of spybot's, and only find cookies. Then upon reading about several people with slow computers and they had a cluttered up computer, I first tried a check disk. I got a crud load of errors. Then I did a system Defrag but my system did not need it. But it seems like the errors come back every time i restart my computer. So in order to get the errors gone for good, I tried Uniblue Registry Mechanic. It found over 700 errors and i got them fixed. In order to fix them my computer had to restart. My computer shut down fine but didn't start up again. I could get into bios but nothing else it seems like I tried to reinstal windows but when i put my windows cd in, It could not find a hard drive to reformat. I then got the idea to take a look at my hard drive. It looks fine but is soo hot it burns. I then got the idea that I should let it cool down. But that did not work. Then i tried to unplug the wires from my hard drive and plug them back in. That worked. Now it seems like whenever i leave my computer alone for any amount of time, It shuts off on me and i have to unplug and plug in my hard drive every time. Now heres my question. Is it a problem with my Hard Drive? Is it a problem with Uniblue Registry Mechanic?
