    Hi guys, I have a HP 550 laptop, Vista Home Basic, and I have such a problem. First of all several days ago Windows detected an error and after that I had automatical system recovery. After that I had some problems, first of all, my HDD shows 32 gb, though it is 250gb, I've checked its actual size and it is 250, but in My Computer it shows like 32??? The next problem was, that I can browse in internet only for 15-20 minutes,then the system freezes, I can't do anything, I've tried all the popular browsers IE, Mozilla, Chrome - the same problem!!! I don't know what to do. please help!!! One more detail, the problem with browsing appeared after some windows uppdates, actually!

    Download malwarebytes and run it...

    Download Stinger from mcAfee and run it under safe mode.
