I don't know if this is a virus, but my computer shuts down. It started about a week ago. I had been leaving the computer on and the power switch was orange. I could not shut it off. I had to disconnect the power and wait a few minutes and then it started up. Trend Micro loaded and said that it reverted to a previous virus scanning pattern. Since then the computer has shut down several times, including 3 times today. Each time I had to disconnect the power, wait, then start it up. The last time it was only on 10 minutes. Prior to 8/1/08 this had never happened before. The operating system is Windows XP. I recently loaded Service Pack 3 which said it ran successfully. I have Trend Micro Internet Security and I also run Super Antispyware. Any ideas? Computer, Virus or Service Pack 3.
