Btw, why would you bring the computer to the Geek Squad? The first thing they would do is reinstall Windows. If you bring it to us (seven forums), the first thing we would do is tell you what to do.
geek squad isnt alowd to reintall windows, they did software diagnostics, hardware diagnostics, and nothing poped up as abnormal, they ran several virus checks and they sayed nothing was wrong after hooking it up for 3 days to a computer app which runs diagnostics multiple times i guess

For your Geek Squad, they probably don't re-install Windows. MOST Geek Squads (where I live) they do re-install Windows.

They probably ran virus checks with their own anti-virus software or a third-party (i.e. Norton, McAfee, Kaspersky). If you use MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes to scan for malware = probably make a big difference.

so far ive narrowd down its not a virus, or adleast i think, im pretty sure hp has programs that are not shuting down, they do it all the time, if you buy an hp, you are really renting it, you dont really own it, they take over, once get this resolved im getting riddof everything i can of HPs, i droped 4gs on it at this point on upgrades, my minimum power supply shouldve been 600, they gave me a power supply with 450, i had to upgrade 800, i wouldve perverd a 1200 but i coiulnt afford it and its not worth complaning, avery time i cntact them i call india and hve problems where they refuse to fix it despite my warenty.
