Virus that crashes windows (and annoys too)

By SpaceCat

  1. I think I got a virus in my computer. If I play games do something, usually nothing wrong happens. But if I leave computer idle for about 15 minutes it crashes. I tried Avast and Kaspersky antiviruses, but I can only make quick scan which don't find really much. If I start Full scan, computer crashes at about 9%. Sometimes games crashes too but not very often (music still plays normally when game crash, but not for long) If crashes when I antivirus is scanning, then I can stiill move the mouse, switch windows once or twice, but nothing else then.

    I coud reinstall windows ofcourse, but I want to leave this choise as Plan C, if nothing else could help.

    Hope someone could help me

    First what OS?

    Boot to Safe Mode with Networking!

    Then download install and run the below.

    D/L install and run ATF-Cleaner
    clear all except passwords in all browsers you have. Run repeatedly until no more found.

    Very good: KCleaner

    Do the TechSpot 8 steps:

    We want SAS and MBAM UPDATED and run, but be sure to do the CCleaner.

    Attach all logs back.
