Same thing happens in safe mode. The hard disk light and cpu usage spike every 4 seconds. If I try to run more than 1 window at a time, I get a blue screen. Avast internet security is unable to update virus definitions. Toshiba laptop. Help will be very much appreciated, I have no idea where to go from here! :(
