When I go onto the internet after a few minutes & especially if I switch sites my PC freezes on the
monior and a load of Blue marks appear on the screen.When I switch off the monitor I notice a lot of scratches on its inside which I cannot remove.It is 12 Years old,my PC is 6 Years old.
I have no malware problems.
While writing this letter it froze & the blue blobs appeared on the screen and I had to restart.
Any Ideas?

See if you can try a different monitor. Because this doesn't sound like a symptom for any of the problems that Fruit Bat /\0/\ is describing to me?...
