Just recently my comps been playing up a bit.
Every time I go to turn it off, it either doesn't respond and stays on like I didn't even click the "Turn Off" icon. Or if you click it again, it responds, but takes about 1/2 hour to actually turn off?
Also having problem with Ctrl+Alt+Del and when a programs not responding, when "End task" is selected, it goes to end the program, but again doesn't respond. In the end just freezes up the windows
I've installed a few anti-spyware programs over the last day to as I thought that might of been the problem. And it has cleared up some ad-ware but the problem is still here.
I have an expired version of Norton anti-virus that also is acting odd. When a program trys to connect to the internet, it completely blocks it. If a notification occurs, and you select permit, it still continues to block the outgoing connection. This is also linked to some of the programs crashing.
Thought about removing Norton, also have an expired version of Mcafee on here. Are there any substitutes to these programs? I currently downloaded Search & Destroy, Counterspy, Windows defender 2, Windows malcious virus remover & Hijackthis (not been used yet, to complicated!)
Any ideas on what the fix to this problem might be, and advice on the anti-virus software would be GREATLY apprecaited! Computers decently new and I'm about ready to throw it out the window already
