* What does the computer do when you attempt to boot it up? * What operating system? The computer would just shut down completely after selecting 'restart.' No problems booting up thereafter. I have Windows XP Service Pack 2. I have determined what the problem was. It was due to enabled software called Window Washer 5.0. When I disabled it, my computer is now able to go into restart mode.
causes: .You have "automatically restart" selected.
restart the computer and by doing that disconnect the battery for 5 min

There are a couple of things you can try if you find yourself running low on RAM, and your computer is slow. You can restart your computer which closes all running programs. Checking your internet connection may also be slowing your computer.
Each antivirus uses up about 5% of your ram when it is not running. if you install more than one anti virus your computer will become extremely slow

Yes, a computer must be turned on to run an antivirus scan. All programs residing in an operating system (and the operating system itself) will work and function if and only if the computer is booted. However, you can still run antivirus while the computer is idle. Some antivirus scanners will still work if the computer runs into sleep mode. Software needs hardware to be able to work. So, you need to boot up the computer to start any programs (including antivirus scan).
AnswerAntivirus programs analyze data being sent to and from. They also monitor programs running on your computer to make sure they are not malicious. Having more than one antivirus program running is dangerous because the two antivirus programs may interfere with one another. As a result, malware may be able to infect your computer because your antivirus programs are interfering with one another. Uninstall one program before you install the other. Personally, I have had to antivirus programs installed at once but i disabled one of the programs. Keep in mind, I only did this because I thought one program was not detecting all of the malware on my computer. However, most users do not know how to completely stop a program from running without uninstalling it. Like I said before my suggestion is to avoid have more than one antivirus program installed.
Yes it will, more running programs, slower the computer. And it will interfere with each other, may cause problems, and you will possible have a higher chance of getting a virus than just having one antivirus

You can download a security software in the internet. Some of them have payments, others don't. If you are running an original Windows PC and you are running out of budget to buy licenses for antivirus, you can download Windows Defender. It is absolutely free.
