hey thanks for reply mate and the link. went through the disable pe386 at the recovery console.
did all the scans as well. i'm using malwarerbytes and avast in safe mode. some one sugested it may be a driver problem and the only driver i have updated recently is my nvidea graphics card. as i said i had a few probs with it a couple of days ago so just to check i've rolled it back to the previous driver and see if that helps. i'll proberbly do a memtest86+ scan just to see if my ram is ok. strange how the problem only started when i installed 2 new ram sticks and after i've taken them out of the mobo the problem still exists. i'll see how it goes anyway fingers crossed
