I did another avast scan and it found 3 items I sent to vault, do I post them here or in another forum to see if I need to proceed futher?

I try and use the ctrl alt delete to get my computer to be active again and it may or may not work. I often have to push button on tower to restart. Is there another way other than that ?

Thanks for any help you may give
