So, this is an all in one post... I suppose the pc shutting down could have/should have gone in Hardware World, but it may be related to software.
Anyway, the first issue I have is yesterday I noticed that I started getting an amazing amount of popups with the "IE" icon attached to it. I no longer use IE as my browser, so I am not quite sure why this is happening. The pop ups are just simply titled "Cannot Find Server" and in the window it says the usual "The page cannot be displayed etc..."
Like I said... I dont use IE any longer so I dont know why this happened. I have used spybot and Adaware and removed whatever they found, but still am getting these popups even when no browser window is open.
Should I run Hijack this as well? Might that help?
I also had a problem last night while this was going on... that my pc just restarted itself two times for no apparent reason. Well, it stopped doing that after a couple times. Later on, when I tried to shut down my computer... and I use Windows XP, it just rebooted. I tried to shut down again... and it rebooted again. It did this a number of times, and eventually it just shut down.
So, in closing UGH!!!!!!
