Check your switch and make sure it is does not stay stuck when you press on it, if you are certain it is not staying stuck and your computer still turns off then we will check at other possibilities for the reason why.

Thank you for responding so quickly. Since my original post, I decided to unplug and remove the cover to see if my fans were operating during the first five seconds of power. When I plugged it in and turned it back on, my fans started up and then shut off. I then turned it on and it stayed on this time. I cannot tell if the switch is stuck but it makes sense that if it was or is that the computer would shut itself down. Now that it is on, it is really slow and the windows take for ever to appear and when they are closed, the dissappear in portions and very slowly a tapering effect. I use this computer for homeschooling my children so it does get alot of use and maybe sometimes abuse : ) if you know what I mean. Could the uninstallation of Avast and the new installation of Norton have an effect of the performance issues. If so what can I do about it? Thank you for your help.

Avast is light on resources and is ok for Vista.
