Ok my comp is running great. I keep it clean and it runs very smooth but at night I use a cam with LED light to it and after 20 mins or so my comp just shuts off. I usually run my comp from 3 in after noon till late at night. Is it shutting off cause my processor is to hot? Im running a Toshiba Satellite. Is there anything i can do to keep it from doing that?

Provide processor info (hold Windows logo key, and hit Pause/Break key to find out).

Take a snapshot, when using webcam.

It shows only HD temperature, unfortunately.
Was the snapshot taken while using webcam?

Disable "Restart on error" feature...

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Advanced tab (Vista: click Advanced system settings).
3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

You may see some error message. If so, post back what it says.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

There is a power supply unit inside your computer (near the fan on the back of your computer).
If you have some handy friend to help you, it's very easy to replace it, and it's cheap. You can get one, starting at 10 bucks. Just make sure, the wattage of it is at least the same, as your current one (more, the better).
