anytime i play a game or try to run my virus scan the computer shuts off and i set it to bring up the bsod but it just shuts totally off. All other programs work just fine

Ive checked RAM, video card and power supply and none of these are the issue. I tried running an AVG virus scan and computer restarts and i tried doing online scans and they cause it to reboot also.

Please help

Have you tried running your AVG in Safe Mode?

You know I was having a problem like that once before, you might want to get another heatsink for your computer, the one your using apparently isn't doing the job, that of course should be your last resort, see if it's a virus or anything, unless it's a dell, if it's a dell, then just replace the heatsink for the fun of it, because dell components are terrible 80% of the time, from my experience.

Just as an aside, the heat alarm for my processor was going off today (after a long while with no cleaning). I took a can of compressed air and blew the heatsink out. Temps dropped over 10 C!
