Run a virus scan

Do you hear any fans running? Try setting a fan to blow into your tower.

Consider replacing your power supply.

If you mean shuting down as in disconnecting from the internet, if running outlook express go to tools>options>connections tab>make sure hang up after sending and receiving is unchecked. Also, in internet explorer, go to tools>internet options>connections tab>settings>advanced>make sure disconnect when when no longer needed is unchecked.

If it's shutting off by itself then you probably have either a bad power supply or bad ram.
