Yesterday I loaded CA Security Suite. This morning when I started up the PC it was very slow to boot and about 10 seconds after the desktop finally appeared, it shut itsself off. It wasn't instant, it was like I did start, shut down. I repeated the exercise several times and same result. It was like what happens when the UPS shuts it down.

I started it in safe mode and no problems. I turned off all the CA stuff using msconfig and restarted in normal mode and everything was fine. Any ideas what might be causing this.

Welcome to BC
Did you previously have another anti- virus program on your computer? If you did and you removed it with Add/Remove programs, chances are there are some remnants left on the computer causing conflicts. Programs such as Norton have Removal Tools you can download and run to get rid of everything. Did you buy CA Suite or was it provided by your ISP? Ratings for CA are minimal, at best: Review
I would suggest having a look at are Freeware applications section for other alternatives if you're not satisfied:

All of the above. It had an old CA EZ trust and yes, this came from ISP. I used add/remove to delete the old version as well as a copy of Webroot SpySweeper. I'll remove the new version, unfortunately add/remove is the only choice, Odd that it was OK yesterday after I installed it but hey, I stopped trying to figure out "why" along time ago.
