Hi, how much memory (RAM) do you have?
Which is your operational system?

You said you run a scan, did you find any virus?
Did you ask for a 'deep' scanning (archives and their content) on avast! settings?
Can you post the name of it if you find any?

Wellcome to forums.

Yes it is, I didn't know you were familiar to avast! terms  ;D
What does make you think you have a virus?
Your configurations (XP 512Mb) are not so bad for a notebook?
Did you try the on-line scanning?

I suggest the On-line scanning...
Do you use SpyBot, Ad-aware or HijackThis applications? I think it would be a good thing to do some research on your problem...
Are you sure is not an 'eletric' trouble (not only cables becouse you are in a notebook but contact)?
