I dont know exactly whats going on with my computer. It was shutting down quite frequently (2 or 3 times a day) until i updated from Trend Micro 2008 to trend micro 2009 & ran a registry cleaning function. Now it doesnt shut down quite so often, but since changing to trend micro 2009 it has never been able to complete a scan. I have it set to scan every night at midnight but every morning when i come in the computer is turned off & the scan didnt finish. Its better that it turns off at night now rather than when i was in the middle of doing something but i would like to work out what the problem is & resolve it.
Any ideas?

Check event viewer. Check power settings. Start a scan manually and observe. Run a scan with Super Antispyware.
