So my computer has been acting very strange as of late. There is something wrong, but everytime i try to do something with my computer, I can't. I tried running Ad-aware, but everytime i do, my computer shuts down. My internet explorer wont let me view my links at the top. I can't save pictures, because i get a message saying, "the system cannot find the file specified." Nor can i view certain web pages, such as photobucket. All that shows up is a blank page. Also, i have windows xp, and only one user can be logged on at one time. It's driving me insane, because it's running so slow and not functioning properly. Oh and when i go to download updates for the computer i can't even do that because i get the message:: "There is not enough free memory to run this program" .. I don't know if I checked it right, but i went into the performance options tab in my system properties, then into virtual memory, and it said 18,960 MB space available.

I neeed help, please! Thank you so much.

Reboot in safe mode and do all the above again.
