Freeze/Restart during Graphic-Intensive Applications
Hey guys, about a month ago I started noticing frequent locks-ups/freezing/restarting/BSOD when my pc runs any game, plays HD vids, and anything that requires the Graphic card to do some work. Sometimes the USB ports just suddenly drop out and stop working.
It only happens when I use something that the FX card needs to run on heavily. If im just browsing the net or working in a document, nothing happens.
I see it most when i open "World of Warcraft" for example, its on the highest settings etc, at a random time between 5-60 minutes it will freeze/restart/BSOD. Sometimes i get lucky, but most of the time i will have to hard reboot cuz of a lock-up of the keyboard or mouse.
I dont think its a heating problem because i just removed all the dust and such from my PC about 2 weeks ago, and temp's of the processors look ok.
I noticed something else, if i touch the case of my PC at specific spots, i get a bit of a shock from the electricity, i dont know if that has anything to do with it, but it could be PSU related? Im not so sure. Just giving u all the details.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply however I highly doubt a virus would cause such drastic hardware problems. Well either way I dont have a virus's but i will try the registry cleaner.
I tried doing what u suggested unfortunately nothing has changed. the problem is still there....:(
