My computer keeps shutting down and I want to know what's causing this. As a side issue, my sbc anti-virus scanner detected 14 viruses that I don't know how to get rid of. The sbc's virus software somehow doesn't have a mechanism to delete these viruses. I suspect one of these viruses is causing my computer to shut down just when I am working on it or surfing the Net. Can I email the name of the viruses to you so you can tell me if these are big threats or low level threats to the operation of my computer?

Thank you very much for your help.

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem. As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system
