Good day everyone, I have ran into a problem with my computer. Just after the New Year I have started having a problem to where my computer turns itself automatically off without any warning. You can be in the middle of playing games or just browsing the internet period when it just shuts off. There was a trojan horse sought/ found, when I ran the AVG antivirus scan. I asked it to heal it, I went into the virus vault and deleted the problem thinking it was fixed. To my surprise it is not. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I would go forth on trying to find out the problem on the puter and fixing it without going to a puter tech and paying big money to fix the problem, if I am able to try myself to do so? I also run AD-ware SE and spy bot search and distroy as well.
I have had my computer properly reformated just before Christmas, and I do all the computer scans once a month and the virus/ spyware scan once a week. I have tried using the trend micro free scan for the virus /trojan horse scan but it comes up as nothing there. But I am absolutely sure that there is something there? Is there anyway of spoofing up my spyware/ antivirus thing so that I can possibly detect the problem and get rid of it?
I do appoligize if I have posted in the wrong forum but I couldn't figure out where to put this post as there is lots to look at for posts and unsure of what my problem really is.
I thank you very much for your help in advance and I hope someone can help me.
