Monday, while watching tv...my computer hit the dredded blue wall. The message appeared "Windows had to shut down in order to protect your computer" and some other mumbo jumbo, crashed, restarted...and begun to run slow. When I would open a program, I would get the blue screen again. I could run AOL instant messanger fine for about a half hour, then the blue screen would happen again. About the third time, I got a new message that said something along the lines of "Trojan Hunter Guard could not load file XXXXXX, file XXXXX needed to start Trojan Hunter" then it crashed. I went into safe mode, deleted that program, ran disk clean up, anti spyware, anti everything...and it crashed in safe mode. I restarted it again, and, although running slow, the crashing seemd to subside. Then...it happened again. But this time I got a blank black screen with the message "Smart Drive detected a fatal error press F1 to skip". I waited and waited, nothing happened, so I hit F1. It started like normal, once Windows started, I would get the same message.
Any ideas? I am currently a poor college student and had to get a deadline for a paper extended TWICE because of this. I am not computer savy, and, as far as my knowledge of computers goes, I have tried what I could. Help would be appriciated.
Thanks in advance,
