Hello all,
I am having a problem with my computer shutting down on its own. I rescently had the "spywarequake" problem, I followed the removal tutorial from these forums and it was removed. Since then whenever I run a spyware program or my ipod video converter software the computer shuts completely off. the computer must stay "off" for a period of time or it will not start back up. What can I do?
I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition on a brand new computer consisting of: AMD Athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 3800+ 2.01 ghz, 2.0 ghz of ram.

Welcome to Bleeping Computers.

Is this a computer that you built, or is it a manufactured computer? If it's one that you built, what motherboard are you using, it it is the later, what make and model is it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I'd suggest that you run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run box. If it asks for your installation CD, please have it ready. And then, check with Windows Update immediately afterwards to ensure that all your updates have remained in place.

Next, I'd check your Event Viewer (how-to here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic40108.html) for errors related to this shutdown.

Then, it's time to check your drivers to see if any of them were corrupted by the spyware. Start with your mobo/chipset drivers, then the video drivers, then any onboard devices, then other "inside the case" devices, then finally any external devices that are plugged in. Since the iPod causes some of these shutdowns you can update it's drivers first if you'd like.
