I’m back. I managed to reinstall all of my programs except for my 3D programs. I will have to create a render of Victoria 4 in high heels.
I used another malware detection tool to scan my computer, but it didn’t find anything suspicious. I wonder why my computer reboots five minutes after I turn it on. It doesn’t reboot in the middle of the day or at night. Weird.
I suspect a hardware issue is causing the computer to reboot. I bought a new power supply in the spring. I hope the motherboard isn’t going bad. I’ll check the computer for loose connections later. One other possibility is that I have a weird software or driver conflict. But I just reinstalled Windows yesterday. If you don’t hear from me soon, I’m probably trying to fix my computer. lol
On a lighter note, I tried to play some new games with my integrated graphics chip. The games that require DirectX 9 run slowly. Second Life, which uses OpenGL, runs at 6 frames per second. I need to find my CD that has the video card drivers. The drives that I found online will not install unless the OEM drivers are installed.
