Welcome to BC

I removed your logs because this is the wrong forum to post them
Also I believe you should explore other possibilities be for posting such

By the way Mbam is terribly out-of-date and needs to be updated
BC does not recommend registry cleaners I have never heard of that one and not positive how to read it correctly

If it is just shutting off with no warning it sounds more like a power supply or a overheating problem

How old is the computer and what is the make and model?

The next time it does it, try looking in the Event Viewer for clues as to what's going on

Maybe give this crash analyzer a try. I haven't used it yet but I know a few others that have with some success

I know this may not be the solution, but before my motherboard DIED, My computer would always shut off and say "Shutting off for prevention of viruses or harmful items" So, it could be from that, but do that crash report, really.
