ASUS Laptop randomly shuts down

I have an ASUS laptop that I beleive has become infected with a virus that is randomly closing down the laptop & immediately re-booting it.

The laptop re-boots fine bar it tries to firstly locate a spyhunter fix rather than the option of XP or Vista. I can manually locate the XP option & then log in OK until the problem recurs. The laptop works OK for indeterminate periods of time & tends to shut down when opening or closing down a programme or a file.

It is for that reason I do not think I have a power supply issue or temperature issue which seem to be common problems.

I have advanced system care which suggests the laptop is in A condition & when it is on it works absolutely fine.

I am suspicious of the spyhunter fix which I think must be rogue. I am also unable to access task manager. A longer term problem is I cannot run the laptop in safe mode. It gets so far then just gets stuck. I accept that any help on here may be limited due to this particular problem.

Most solutions seem to require safe mode.

From googling my problem a suggestion of SD fix seems to fit the bill except that I have been unable to download this from ANY link. Again I am suspicious that this is part of something sinister going on rather than mere coincidence.

Any help at all would be appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance
