"My computer keeps shutting down. It shuts down like a manual shutdown. No warning no blue screen. Like I pulled the plug. And other times it shows a blue screen saying something about possible hardware error and that I should check recently downloaded. And at the bottom of said blue screen it says memory dump and like a countdown. This has been happening the last week. I tried to update all of my regular programs but nothing seems to be working. Recently did a windows update, adobe update, firefox update, nvedia update. I have trend micro so I did a full scan and it doesn't register any viruses but it sometimes shuts down before it finishes so I don't know if a virus is shutting down the computer before it could be erased.
Because of the constant shut downs I am unable to produce a gmer log (like every 3 hours my computer shuts down). I've tried multiple times but it eats up 100% of my cpu. And the computer shuts down before it finishes. Can I do it in safemode? That might keep it from shutting down before its finished.
I also got a 646 error memo from a windows update that failed." I posted this in malware section because I wasn't sure if it was a virus or what but the person assisting me sent me here.
