Random Shutdowns, High Ping, and Other Problems
Alright, so for the last 2 weeks or so, my computer has been shutting down immediately after gets to the desktop, after I start it up for the day. Now it takes 4 boots to stay on, and I don't know why. I am pretty sure its not a virus, as I did a virus scan of my entire hard drive 4 different times. And now it just shut off randomly.
Also, I don't know if this is a symptom of this or not, but now my computer is running really slowly, with nothing in the background except Folding @ Home, and that I am sure is not the problem.
On top of all this, my ping is really high, around 400. What the hell is going on?
As for info, I am running a 3 year old XP setup, with a year old motherboard and graphics card, installed at the same time. Everything else is 3 years old. I have McAffe as an anti-virus program. And I am pretty sure I didn't install anything to make this happen.
