Default Anyone have their boot-up shutdown?

I just want to know if anyone else has shared the experience-
After I got my cable connection and installed the software, my comp. and connection were working just fine. Then, after day 3, it wouldn't even boot up- wouldn't even get to the first screen. Then it was fine. Then it wasn't again.

I installed CounterSpy, then Trojanremover. I unistalled trojanremover, and Counterspy is still on there. Could that be the culprit?

It sounds as if you got a virus. Did you run any scans or anything? Try running a virus scan. Then a spyware scan with Windows Defender Beta 2. After that use the Windows Malware remover and see if that finds anything. After all that use CCleaner to clean out some junk. If that still dont work post a hijack this log for us to look at.
