Just a thought, but has the inside of the case been cleaned out lately? Usually an instant shut down is caused by either driver problems, or hardware issues, usually due to heat. If the CPU gets stressed (as it often is during scans) it could cause heat issues. If fans and vents are clogged up, airflow becomes a problem and heat cannot dissipate fast enough.
If hardware is ruled out, try to do other scans... and see if they will complete.
