Mind of its own

Have you checked the PC for malware or viruses?

What type of PC? What components? Try removing any unneeded USB devices from your system and try again.

Hope this helps!

If this is a new clean install I'm not sure what the problem is

But you can start by getting a copy of the Ultimate Boot CD from here


And running some diagnostics that will test all of your Hardware.

If you didn't wipe the HDD with a utility that writes zero's to every sector it's possible that you have some Mal Ware infection and if that's the case you can either wipe & reload or pull the HDD fit it to a USB Caddy and scan it on another Computer to clean it up.

Personally I would be looking at a wipe and reload as this is always the fastest option available. If you don't have a wiping utility Boot & Nuke is available from here
