Goodday to all u fine sirs out there....
Ive been a frequent visitor of this site, but never registered...
anyways, the time has come to register, cuz i got a huge problem...
I had sum problems before, so i formatted my pc, and all of a sudden it started booting at an incredibly slow pace... like 3x as slow as usual... (took bout 40secs before, now like 2 minutes sumthin... )
Ive messed around with ma BIOS, everything seems to be in order, but im not sure, not a comp wizz myself so yeah...
anyways, im jus rambling here, the major problem is....
once ive booted, and im running sum programs (msn, skype, teamspeak, and then source for example) it all works fine for a while... but then...
all of a sudden my css freezes up, i can just about hear the others on teamspeak for like 5 secs, then tht shuts down... all internet related programs dont work anymore... and the only thing left to do is reboot,( with powerbutton, normal reboot doesnt work neither)

thought it was overheating at first, bought zalman 9500led... load temp during gameplay is at around 32°C, still got same prob...

sorry for the looooong explanation, but its starting to bug me....

What are your system specs? A 40 second boot up is still sounds a little slow for a system that could be running CS:S.

What were your problems before the reformat?

How are you connected to the internet? Is the modem/router/switch (??) functioning properly?

We need a little more info here.

EDIT: Whoops, just saw your specs at the very bottom of your message.

Sounds like a malware problem now. Are you running any antivirus?

I would suggest booting into Safe Mode with networking and try a free online virus scan such as Housecall from Trend Micro. Booting into Safe Mode should ensure that any malware is not running which will allow the online scanner to remove them.

Most regular antivirus is good at keeping stuff from getting onto your computer, however if something gets past it, they are not very good at getting rid of the problem. The Safe Mode method works best for removal.
