  1. Hi everyone. My first time here.

    I just need help with my PC. I have a Dell Dimesion 8400. It was working fine untill a few weeks ago when it keeps turning off. I log on and everything and the all these warning messages pop up and it restarts.

    At the moment I am logged in on safe mode with networking. But its really annoying coz i cant use msn or listen to music. Sometimes it works fine but that is very rare.

    First I thought it was one of the fans in the PC, but there both spinning. I even vacumed the inside of the computer but no luck!!!

    Someone please help!!

    Hi,

    What kind of warning messages pop up? If possible, perhaps you could post a screenshot so we could determine is the pop ups are legit or from malware.

    Sounds like spyware. I recommend the following 3 anti-spyware utilities:

    • Ad-Aware 2007
    • Spybot Search & Destroy
    • AVG Anti-Spyware
    All are free and can be downloaded via the Internet.

    I'm afraid we cannot open word documents in case viruses/trojans may be embedded in them. You could upload the images to somewhere like imageshack or even on ur user gallery in techspot then link it.
