Hi there,

Lately (past 3 or so days) my laptop has just been constantly shutting down, it shuts down every 3 hours or so, or when im doing intensive stuff, such as games or browsing a few sites at once. I tried scanning my computer but it tends to shut down before the scan could be fully completed, so I don't know if it's a virus, but then again there's no reason it could be a virus as I don't visit those sites.

I use trend micro internet secruity pro 2009. Before the 3 days ago, my comp was fine and was running smooth, it's only all of a sudden it's crapping on me.

Im just wondering how to stop it from doing this? It's frustrating and puts me off. Sorry about this message not being very long, but my laptop could shutdown at any time now, so im trying to be quick.

Thanks guys!

Hey Stinger,

1. Right-click on My Computer and select Properties.
2. Click Advanced system settings on the left.
3. Under Startup and recovery, click the Settings button.
4. Under System failure, UNcheck Automatically Restart.

As for your most recent crashes, please send them to us for analysis:

1. Click the Start Menu, and in the Start Search box, type %SystemRoot%\Minidump and press ENTER.
2. Zip and attach the last few .dmp files to your next post so that I can analyze them for you.

Hello os,

Thanks for getting back to me, I disabled that option.

When I type %SystemRoot%\Minidump and press enter it comes up with the folder but no files are inside?

Regards,
Nathan.
