What's wrong with my computer?

It shuts down by itself a number of times. I just searched Adele in one tab while viewing the DL in another tab and then when I went back to the adele tab, the following was typed into google search: LWH HIMIIHD EIJIJI

I didn't type this. I've been noticing a lot especially when I use google search. I'll enter one thing into google search and another thing which I didn't type will show up.

Run a virus scan.

The problem is coming from INSIDE YOUR COMPUTER!

OP - what sort of computer, operating system, age & browser?

It's mocking you.

In addition to a virus scan do a malware scan. If you have malware you may need to format your hard drive.

If you don't find a virus or malware you may need to replace your battery or power source if it is shutting down on its own.

But it sounds like a redirect virus and even if you think you've fixed it, it's never really gone. So it's worth the effort to format and reload your operating system.

I have my own question. Last night my computer started to smell like burning plastic. When I looked inside everything seemed fine. What parts should I look at to see where the problem is? I tried sniffing around but everything smelled like burnt plastic.

OP --

Answer R6's questions.

The problem may be that it isn't a Mac.

It was you, from the future, trying to find this thread.

by Anonymousreply 1902/15/2013

LOL R8, that's the first thing I thought of too when I saw "LWH HIMIIHD EIJIJI".

by Anonymousreply 2002/15/2013

LOL@ R16!! I get it! Like that babysitting slasher movie.

Google the anti-malware free program, Malawarebytes. Put it on your desktop. Run it and see if you have malware. This is a good reliable program and was reviewed by cnet dot com.

Shuts down like turns itself off?

by Anonymousreply 2302/16/2013

OP does it overheat? Check temperatures with HWMonitor.

by Anonymousreply 2402/16/2013

Yes R23 Some viruses or malware will do this. The operating program will shut down and the computer will turn off and/or reboot.

Hire this guy

by Anonymousreply 2602/16/2013

I guess the typing from inside the keyboard finally got the OP. It's probably a good thing.

I am an an IT guy so if you answer my question then I can probably help you OP (unless you really are in danger, girl...)

by Anonymousreply 2702/16/2013

The problem is likely somewhere between the chair and the keyboard.

by Anonymousreply 2802/16/2013

R21, you are savvy!

You in danger, url!

Sounds like you're leaning on the keyboard. Computers aren't that interesting. It's probably user input that you're just too hysterical to realise. Calm down, Mary.

If you searched Adele, the fat obese bitch probably ate your hard drive.
