Windows 7: Random system restarts.

Okay. From the few months of my experience in debugging, I've learnt that most antiviruses expecially "Internet Securities" cause BSOD-s as well as ntfs errors.

Can you temporarily remove:
Start Menu\Programs\BullGuard	Public:Start Menu\Programs\BullGuard	Public
Use MSE and malwarebytes.
MSE is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
Let us know if those random reboots still happen?

Uninstall it with either Bullguards uninstall tool:

With the free version of Revo Uninstaller.
Uninstall using Advanced Mode, it will let you clear leftover registry entries of the program.

Please post back results :)

I think i may have found the cause though, the computer now works fine if nothing intensive is running, but if i try any GPU benchmarks the computer restarts.

I've done many CPU benchmarks and it still runs at a cool 35 degrees Celsius and below.

All other games that i used to be able to play at max setting now won't even let me play for several seconds but i managed to get on one game and reduce the graphics to the lowest settings and it works fine. So i played that for about an hour or two and now it works. i haven't received the restart since.

My security has been fine since i got it, however i am planning on moving to Kaspersky anti-virus and security in January and i will be purchasing a new GPU then as well.

I'll keep you posted if anything changes but for now i think it has been resolved as long as i don't run anything graphics intensive for a few days just to be sure that it isn't anything else. If it happens again while I'm just using small programs such as Skype, Firefox, iTunes and Microsoft office then i will try further fixes and ideas. And if it still going on i am going to try a fresh install of windows. and if that doesn't work then i may have to replace some more components.

Thank you both for all of your help and support, yet again this forum delivers. I would really be in a mess if i didn't have this forum for advice.

Thanks again, Notarize
