    Someone please help me. And quick.

    Yesterday I received the dreaded BSOD. My computer stopped altogether and restarted itself. Later, my Firefox and a few game programs would not work. Nothing to faze me yet. I ran AVG, Ad-Aware, and Symantec Antivirus, and nothing was wrong.

    Today, I BSODed again. My Windows Live Messenger would encounter an error every time I opened it. Same with Windows Messenger. Dr. Watson would always encounter errors, Explorer.exe was shutting down and restarting every few minutes.

    I restarted the computer. Things were well until my computer restarted itself again. I tried to run more virus scans, but AVG has ceased to work. I want to download Windows Defender but I can't - the authenticize thing doesn't work for me.

    I don't know what to do - something is eating my computer from the inside out and I am powerless to stop it! What should I do?!

    What error is being shown on the BSOD? If it reboots too quickly to see, make sure to turn off the option to automatically reboot on error

    Yeah, it does reboot too quickly. I'll turn off that option and look for it the next time. My computer is currently on now and seems to be working fine - perhaps it was just overworked. It's a laptop, but I use it like one would a desktop PC...
