I have an old but trusty PC that started randomly restarting. It can happen once every 10 min. or it’ll work for 5-6 hours then boom. Sometimes it loads back up with the choice of loading Safe Mode or normal, but most times it just goes straight to Windows XP as if nothing happened.
I went into a cleaning frenzy a couple of days ago (happens about once a year:) and opened up the computer and cleaned it with an old toothbrush.
I had some new software installed around the same time. Got rid of that immediately after problems started and ran Malwarebytes in Safe Mode but it didn’t find any infected files.
Do you think I damaged something while cleaning or is it a virus for sure? :(
