I was wondering if anyone could help me understand why my pc just turns of when it feels like it sometimes it could be around once an hour some times every few mins and sometimes it could last a day before shutting down and restarting. I have ran adaware,pandatitanium,housecall,spy bot, I used hijacker got rid of a few things I didn't reconize but most stuff looks like it belongs. I also have startup monitor on my pc along with spyware blaster. If anyone can figure out what would make my pc do this I would very much appreciate your help. My pc is a compaq 900 MHz 128MB RAM, 40 GB ultraDMA I am running XP not sure if this info helps but thought I would put it in incase. Thank you for taking the time to read this any help would be great.

Hi Lachessis, welcome to DaniWeb :D

There are several things that can cause this, if you think this may be related to some type of malware on your system, I suggest you get the self-extracting version of HijackThis from here (in line 2):
http://www.malwareremoval.com/downloads.html

Then close any open browser windows, 'Scan and Save Log' with hijackthis, copy the log, and paste it here in this thread.

However, my first thought would be an overheating issue. If you haven't cleaned the interior of your computer lately, you should do so. Be sure to protect your system from static electricity (preferably with a wrist-strap); use canned air and, if available, a small vacuum -- carefully. The most important areas to clean are the fans and CPU; you should have at least three fans: a case fan, a CPU fan, and a fan inside the power supply unit.

It's also possible one of the fans could be dying a slow death. After you've cleaned it, leave the case open and start the computer. Watch the fans and make sure they are all spinning smoothly and quietly -- not jerking or making any funny sounds.

Keep us posted :)

The latest version is 1.99.1, so yes, the one you have is outdated. I suggest the self-extracting link because there is a better chance the user will install it in a permanent folder rather then a Temp folder. They still manage to get it in a Temp folder pretty often somehow :confused:
