  Sorry,it happens real fast and I always miss the file name, I just completed a quick scan using Malwarebytes it worked fine and found nothing, I then did a full scan than ran for about 50 minutes then it froze/reboot

I wonder if that is an overheating problem

Download Speedfan and install it. 
Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. 
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.


(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

Could you run a scan but exclude the users folder
Let me know if it completes a scan then

I am in darkest Cornwall (GMT)

OK what I would suggest now is a full uninstall of Avast then run aswClear then reinstall.  If it happens again then there is a possible driver conflict within your system

I followed your link/instructions when I got to safe mode (yes) megabytes was there and I didn't notice it quick enough, CRASH ! (getting a little tired of this) so I deleted megabytes @ add / remove programs, I'll tackle this in the morning and report back thks again for all your help

Essexboy If your on today, I got a little lost on the uninstall,so I used add remove/programs and re-installed Avast and tried to do a quick scan with same crash results.I also noticed on the support menu there are a few other options for help or should I just eat less next month and replace this machine it's old like me
