    I built my own computer a month or so ago and it has been running perfectly fine till now.
    I installed Limewire today and right after that my computer started to shut off randomly, sometimes before Vista even loads up!
    I was able to get into Safemode to remove Limewire, thinking that was the problem... but it shut off again afterwards.
    Its been doing this all day!
    The system isnt dirty at all and the fans -seem- to work fine.

    BTW: I'm using AVG free version for the virus scan.
    Should I do that in safe mode? If so, how?

    UPDATE: Im able to run on regular after a while of having the system off... Im starting a virus scan now.

    I wouldnt see why it would be over heating though... I even put that cooling gel crap on the CPU when I first bought it

    UPDATE: It shut down soon after I started the AVG virus scan. /sob
