Question
QUESTION: I am using windows 7 operating system. I switched to high performance power plan. I used to download movies when my computer is idle. During that time, maybe after 1 hour or so, when I press a key, it displays welcome screen. If I enter password.. then the computer displays a black screen forever. Then I have to restart to see again. Also my download(torrent) stops before 1/2 an hour or so, if I log on after 1.5 hours.(Example, if it displays 2 hours remaining for download, after 1 hour during logging on(I mean after restart), it displays 1.5 hours remaining). I can't download a movie completely by leaving my pc alone. Please help. I also set Turn off Hard disks duration as never.

ANSWER: Shameem,

I recommend scanning your system with virus software and malware software: The fact that your system gos to welcome and then black screen states the systems OS has issues, and does not load properly.

Hope this helps

QUESTION: I'm using Mcafee antivirus with current updates. I scanned the whole system and it indicates no threats. Please help.

Answer
Shameem,

When your system boots suddenly stop it by powering it off: The next time you boot the system up it will go into SAFE mode: Load your system in SAFE mode then re-run scan and reconfigure your system so it does not use high performance power plan, and get rid of all the movies uploaded by deleting them: Do a google search on a free registery cleaner and install it.

Run a register cleaner program then shutdown your system, and reboot it back up.  This should clean your system and get you back up and running.

thanks
