First off, I would say I'm pretty bad with computers so bare with me. My computer has been running pretty fine so far. Recently, maybe a week or two ago it started to randomly reboot and sometimes just shutoff incapable of rebooting itself. It does the random rebooting or shutting off relatively fast probably about 5 minutes into browsing it will do it. However if I turn it on and go instantly to a game (eg. World of Warcraft or Starcraft II) it'll last quite awhile longer . About 45 mins or so. Idk of that's a coincidence or not but I figured the more info the better.

Anyways I ran malware bytes and found about 10 infections. I figured I was good after taking of them however one kept returning. Named scvhost.exe(Trojan). I tried multiple times to get rid of it with Malwarebytes but it kept returning.

I'm not too sure of my computer specs. In running windows 7 and that's pretty much all I know. Thanks in advance

Not sure how to edit on my iPhone sorry. I forgot to add. Sometimes it will reboot before I even log in or start windows at all. And if I start in safe mode it seems it doesn't reboot or crash. Thanks again
