    I´ve had this problem too. For me it´s either because it´s too hot in my room or because of all the viruses that´s being sent to my computer and the computer automatically shuts down because of that.

    I suggest you do this if it´s the same reason your computer does it as mine:

    1. Make sure your room is not too warm.

    2. Get a good anti virus programme to take care of all sorts of hacking against you.

    Maybe this will help, Pravesh.

    It's a virus that re-starts your computer giving you a minute. I've had it twice before. No reason to panic, it can easily be taken care of.

    Just go to your local technology store and buy an anti-virus CD since the virus won't be giving you enough time to download one online.

    I think it's likely to be the My Doom virus.

    Have a look here for more info and instructions on how to get rid of it.

    http://securityresponse.symantec.com...oval.tool.html

    Don't e-mail anyone cause you would send the virus with your emails.

    Is it really a virus alert ??

    It's my new computer !! :cry2: Just one week old.
    And I do have norton anti virus (15 day trial), but nothin seems to work.
    Last time, I had in my other computer, the technician did something (by clicking on the option or the opposite in some options folder). Sadly, when I asked that technician how to do it, that guy told me that it's technical stuff ... he didn't try to tell me, may be coz I wudn't call him next time for repairing computer ....

    Anyway, it worked that time, and it had nothin to do with virus...

    Thanx guys ..... I will try .... and yeah, i have been able to work in my computer for abt 10 minutes at a time now ..

    The My Doom virus is a real b**ch.

    I have Norton Antivirus installed on my laptop. When I bought a new computer some months ago, I installed Norton on it straight away. Then I connected to the net to update the virus definitions, and guess what: I was infected by the My Doom virus straight away! My comp was restarting every 10 minutes.

    To get rid of it, you'll need to:

    1) Have a antivirus program installed with definitions up to date.
    2) Download any Windows update that is available.
    3) Go to www.microsoft.com and download the patch for My Doom virus.
    4) Use the removal tool for My Doom (you can find it at http://www.symantec.com

    Nowadays you really must have an antivirus and a firewall. You should also get the Windows updates regularly, and run disk clean-up. It's good maintenance for you pc.

    Hmm, would you mind sending me a PM instead? have no idea which e-mail you sent it to and am way too lazy to look it up. If it's the e-mail on FI, then it's wrong.

    I'll check it out, Grazie!

    Oh yeah, and here's some more advice. Next time you see a kid who looks kinda nerdy like a hacker, curse him out and make sure to hurt his feelings so he won't infect any new computers!

    Just kidding, if he's infecting computers and you threaten him, he might get destructive, so negotiate with him using phrases like, "You've got so much to live for!"

    -Jesse

    PS Watch out for spyware too, "spybot" and "spyware blaster" should clean you up, just search for them and don't pay a dime, they're free...
