I was asked to start a new topic, I hope I am in the correct forum. After removing some malware my computer started to shutdown randomly, I talked to someone from geeksquad and they thought it could be a temperature thing, since the computer wouldn't allow itself to be turned back on for a minute or so. I cleaned up inside the computer but it didn't really help, then I cleaned it even further and tried to clean the fan on top of the motherboard (...I think it was the motherboard... the big red thing). I wasn't too successful, though, because of how hard it was to get at the fan, so I'm hoping for some guidance to help figure out whether it's just a dust thing, a power supply problem, or whatever else could be causing this.
edit: Going to try to clean the inside of my computer a little more thoroughly, will respond shortly.
