Hey,

I recently downloaded an amateur crack programm for a game i had bought. It was supposed to make it load quicker than when using the cd, but instead my laptop restarts now at certain time intervals.
At the start when it shows the desktop for the first time, i can also see the cmd. (command box) open and then suddenly disappear.

I tried uninstalling the game completely, then re installing it. I also tried a bunch of anti viruses and spybots, they couldnt find anything either.

Is there any easy solution to my problem? or anyway of finding out what has happened to my laptop?

More about : restart warning

Windows restore to date prior to the download.

The crack program was probably a scam. It's most likely malware. I'd do a full virus scan and also run malwarebytes on your drive.
