I have a toshiba satellite s 269 thats running XP its about 2 1/2 years old. Tonight while surfing the internet the computer just completely froze. I restarted it and after about 5 mins the computer just simply shut off. I kept trying to restart the computer but it would shut off within 3 seconds of the power button lighting up. This continued to happen about another 10 times.
Then finally it started I ran several spyware programs as well as vundo fix and everything checked out ok. Then the computer again froze. I have been trying to reboot the computer ever since and it will start at times and then within 3 mins or so it will freeze again. My wife did say there was a microsoft update that was automatically performed yesterday. Any help will be appreciated.
