Two months ago, I got a computer from a friend of a friend of a friend. The second-Gen friend is not around to help with the problems I've had, nor is the former owner (whom I've never met.)..

Enough about me.
What about this poor dumb PC that has averaged about six total system shut-downs --per a week -- since the day I turned it on.
It usually occurs when I'm on e-mail, just about to send, or right after closing a window. This may a be a coincidence.
