while working on my pc, suddenly the power went off but there is no power interruption. i have to re-start again.

however, i noticed that while running a scan disk, disk defragmenter, virus scan or a long running program, power went off before finishing its task.

a. could this be that i have a short MB RAM and because the program is so long? or

b. is it cause by a virus?

Take a look in the event viewer to see what is listed there at the times that this is occurring.

Start> Control panel> Administrative Tools> Event Viewer

When the event viewer opens make sure that you are looking at the system log, across the top you will see titles above the different columns, find the one titled Event, if you right click on an item in this column and then choose properties a box will open with a description of what has occurred. See what you have listed there and let up know.

It sounds like you have a problem with your PSU.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
