Run adaware,

Or pull the plug and then it restarts, see if that works if not call out an engineer/ computer doc.

Well, if pulling the plug doesn't work, it must be a very mean machine, taking its power from human beings or something like that. Could also be a mobo failure, but it sounds like what suzie suggested is a good idea (very agressive malware then) or even a virus scan...

well on one of my Comps (with a Enhanced 30Gig) theres a Small light on the chip under it that is always on. is that what you see? cuz if it is then dont worry about it.

Just a thought. ;)

this light is lit when the hard drive is being read or is spining. I ran adaware and it found a few and rans spybot and it found none and now running a virus checker right now avg. then will reboot and see what happens
