Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook ?

Computer randomly shuts off

\015 Dell Inspiron 1100--I just had new hard drive installed & also increased the Ram. I installed AVG anti virus program not realizing the guy had installed another AV program. I have since removed the AV program he had installed. Could this have done damage to my computer causing it to shut down randomly?\015

Answers :

Random shut downs can be caused by registry conflicts, thermal issues, malware and viruses. First thing I would do is get a can of compressed air and blow the cooling vents out to make sure the cooling fins are clear of dirt and debris, then I would go to www.filehippo.com and download MalwareBytes Malware remover, it can be found center of page under spyware. Install and run, perform a QUICK scan and remove anything it finds. Once that is completed, perform a complete scan with AVG and make sure it is updated. Then go to www.filehippo.com and download Ccleaner, this little program will clean out the ****, make sure to do the registry clean and do it three times in a row to make sure everything gets cleaned out. It automatically makes a restore point so don't worry about backing up anything, just delete what it tells you. Good luck
