I'm using Windows 7 64 bit and as I said in the topic, my computer is turning off after exactly 1 hour. I've tried reinstall Windows and it helped me for 2 weeks. After this time it started shutting off again.

Can someone help me with this problem?

 It sounds like you have something either in Task Scheduler or something in your startup list that's causing this.  First run MSCONFIG, click the Startup tab (Note: avoid the other tabs), and you'll see a list of things being started when you boot up.  You can uncheck anything there except you antivirus program.  If that doesn't stop the problem, you can run the Task Scheduler and look.  It's found under Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Task Scheduler.  There's a plethora of stuff there, so be careful!

 

Good luck.

Did you reactivate Windows after reinstalling it?

 

Are you receiving any error messages?

There wasn't anything suspicious in startup. But I discovered something in task scheduler named RacTask. I was waiting for next run time of RacTask and 20 seconds after run time of this task my computer just turned off.

And dc3. I've activated Windows and i don't recieve any error messages.

I've disabled RacTask and problem still occurs. You can see how I did it on photo below.

 I have Rac task in my Task Scheduler (Windows 7 SP1, 64 bit Home Premium), and it's not causing me any problems.  According to the link I found, it does run hourly to collect reliability data.  If it's causing your a problem, you probably need to run SFC, Malwarebytes, and your antivirus.

 

Good luck.

Since it's nonessential, I would just disable it, http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3047.how-to-enable-and-disable-reliability-monitor-data-collection.aspx .

There isn't problem after Malwarebytes scan and SFC. Thanks for help.

 

Have a nice day. :)
