    This is a reocurring problem where my computer will just randomly turn it self off!
    I think it may either be malware (though I have scanned for malware), automatic updates causing shutdown, or ...I keep getting a warning bubble saying that I'm running low on virtual memory.

    I am a beginner and naive when it comes to technology. This error has occurred before, but it has been non-occurant in the last year since it happned last.
    The computer will just randomly switch itself off no matter what I'm doing...I dont think its the hardware..just a hunch.

    please please help as this is a pain in the ***. really i should get a new PC (its an old packard bell model running on windows XP).

    thanks

    heres a hijackthis scanlog by the way;
