|Its not malware/viruses. I already checked. |
My old story:
People say to have multiple layers of protection for viruses/malware. I previously had ad-aware + avg + zonealarm + advanced system care but months ago i got a Trojan that ad-aware and avg couldnt pick up. It was rerouting my Firefox to other sites. So i got Norton 360 for $70. It wasnt compatible with zonealarm so i uninstalled it to complete installation. I used Norton and it found the Trojan and got rid of it. Afterwards i noticed Norton was overriding Ad-aware from being able to function properly, so i uninstalled ad-aware due to its inability to track the Trojan. This is the third time im using Norton 360 and the previous 2 years ive had it, its always kept my PCs in good condition and safe from my experiences. Now its Norton 360 + AVG + Advanced System Care which seems like a monster at stopping viruses/malware and keeping PC clean. I use CNET Reviews plus http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/tes... which shows test results of all those antivirus/malware software. Ive thought about Avast but its performance results were somewhat lacking for early 2011. With bitdefender rising up with a recent perfect protection score, i was tempted to grab it but i chose Norton as it had good scores and i've had previous experience with it + being 1 of the few allowed to be used at work and businesses, i felt safer. it lives up to its name in my opinion.
As for my current problem, i can only see my parts are dieing out. So i was looking at new vid cards, power supply units, and cases on the internet. Going to check out Frys Electronics later today to see if they have what i want. If not, im gonna order the stuff i need off of newegg.com
Right now ill check out memtest86 and see if the memory card is the problem.
Edit: i also found this thread. This guy had the exact problem it seems. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/2...
