    I'll do my best to keep this as short as possible. I am using my laptop to post this message. A couple nights ago, out of nowhere, my desk top computer just shut off. I turn it on and about 17 minutes later it shuts off again. So I google the problem and it says things could be over heating. So, I clean the fans and inside the case, start it up and go to the efi bios and check the temperature of the processor and motherboard. Both were good so I exit and start windows. It shuts down again. This time I start it in safe mode and run an antivirus. It finds one file and then it deleted that file. I start windows again. This time 20 minutes passes and it shuts off, again. Once again, I start it safe mode and run the antivirus. A couple minutes into running the antivirus in safe mode my computer shuts off. Now, safe mode isn't safe. Instead of the approximately 17 minutes I had in the beginning to try to find this virus, I am now down to less than 5 minutes before it shuts down. I desperately need help.
