Specs: Windows 7

Here is my reply to Question asked by Derek in Post 11 in the above post:

The grey screen just looks like the lights are dim then it may go black then my desk top comes up then it goes back to the page I was on. I will the have everything sitting where I was but pop ups telling me ie. msn is not responding ,interenet, not responding with the circle thing spinning. Give it 2-3 mins and it is ok.

Have you tried other browsers?

I think we should do a very basic malware check. Download and install this freebie (green button top right):
Install and run the program and let us know if it finds anything. If so, please copy/paste the log on here (even if the symptoms should go away).

Also let us know if this only happens when you are on the internet and if so the idea of trying another browser would help diagnose the issue. Are you using IE?

Normally it is best to stick to the original thread (which gives all the background) but as you have reposted I guess you had better stay on here now.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Did the malware check ...nothing reported. I use IE. When not on line I still have issues. The computer will try to shut itself down then it recovers. My mouse will work but can't click on anything. I have this Kaspersky reminder pop up that when I try to delete it, it turns black and stays on my screen while I try to x it out.I have seen those white screens lately too, at least I think it's lately....anyways I don't remember seeing them before.

I tried all of this but didn't or couldn\t fiind the JRT.tst on my desktop so I"ll need to try it again. I'm so frustrated with all of this. I can only be online for short perioda of time as it will go to a black screen or just stop working. So with that said I will try again.

You might try running the Kaspersky Rescue disk.

It's a freebie (Linux based disk) that boots the system; installs itself into RAM only. Then goes on-line to update itself; after-which it will run a full scan (if you opt to - and I would) of the hard drive, and fix (deal with) anything it finds. Then you simply reboot as per into windows... And hopefully things will be somewhat better. Presuming so, JRT and a few other utilities JohnW may suggest can then more easily applied?

There are more than a few pests about that hide within windows when it boots up, and are not easily (if at all) deleted by utilities running within windows itself. The Kaspersky disk approach gets around that as those pests have nowhere to hide... There are other similar utilities about too, and JohnW may suggest them (would be wise to heed...).
