My computer has been slower than normal lately, and suddenly yesterday a message popped up that I had no virus protection, even though I had installed F-Secure and it had been working without problems for the last few years. So I downloaded AVG antivirus and AD aware the next day and tried checking my computer for viruses etc. I left my computer for a while and when I came back it suddenly restarted. Now when I open my computer after a few seconds a "No signal" message appears and it restarts by itself.

Does anyone know what causes this and how to fix it?

I use Windows XP Home Edition.


EDIT: Problem fixed!

Did you try running AVG without first disabling F-Secure? If so, it may have mucked things up badly.

Can you run it in Safe Mode? Try booting there, then start with an AdAware scan and see where that goes.
