    the shares memory never gave me a problem

    but today my p.c started restarting in 15 or 10 mins after booting
    i dont know the cause, but all that was running was
    Avast 4.8 home
    ptokax
    zion++
    my broadband client and
    bittorrent

    i ran a bootscan
    it detected nothing in the system drive
    but detected a malware in the other drive
    so far now all the previous proccesses r running except for bittorrent

    A subject "Urgent Help" tells us nothing. Everyone who posts for help things it's urgent! Better to give a descriptive subject. Your subject could be: System Rebooting

    But there isn't enough information to give you any help. The fact that you're running BitTorrent in itself can cause problems.
    Pleas see the following. Follow the steps, then attach your logs. We will review them and try to find the problem:

    You might start with which OS you are running and you should check the box that says "show processes from all users" on the processes tab of your task manager as there is NO WAY those are the only processes running.

    I think you should download MalwareBytes' scanner and run it (while disconnected from your network) and see what it reveals.

    Yes, the OS is very important:
