Topics I've Started
08 August 2011 - 09:33 PMSo, I don't if any of you guys know anything about this, but...
Anyway, I just built myself a new PC. Everything works fine most of the time, an occasional BSOD here and there... But something odd has happened to me a few times now.
If I leave Windows running unattended for a while (about 15 minutes or so) I'll come back to my computer to see it appears to have shut down. If I press the power button or reset button it turns on but I get nothing on the monitor, so I have to hold the power button for a few seconds until it shuts off completely, at which point I can successfully start it up and get something on the monitor. The first thing I see is a black screen with white text in the center saying something like "Warning!!! The previous overclocking attempt had failed." and a few options to enter the BIOS setup or just continue normally. At this point I can reset at any time and boot back into Windows right where I left off, with everything still open like nothing had happened.
The thing is... to my knowledge, I'm not overclocking at all. I even disabled the Intel Turbo Boost technology thing from the BIOS settings menu. It just seems to happen every time my screen saver should start.
This is kinda my first resort because I don't feel like registering on any forums dedicated to this sorta stuff just to make a few posts and never come back. Yeah, I'm really fuckin' lazy.
If it helps, I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit with 4GB of RAM and an Intel i5-2500k CPU and a Radeon HD 6950 graphics card. MSI P67a-c43 mobo, Antec EA650 PSU.
29 July 2011 - 03:11 AMSo I decided to dig up my old Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 CD and install it... but AVG goes batshit insane over the main Skate3.exe file, insisting it has a trojan and it won't stop reminding me of it until I remove the CD.
Since it's a retail CD that I bought at Wal-Mart some years ago, I'm thinking it's probably a false positive (and Malwarebytes seems to have no issues with the CD, either).
What do you guys think, is it a trojan or not? More importantly, how do I get AVG to calm down about it? It won't let me ignore it or access it.
