My computer is shutting itself off every 10 minutes. I am on the internet and it just shuts off. Sometimes it restarts. All diagnostic tests have said nothing is wrong.(Norton systemworks and windows system tools). No new s/w or h/w has been added. Computer is 4 years old. I am typing fast because any second now it will shut off!!!! Help!!!

Try unplugging from the internet for awhile. If the problem goes away it might just be one of those RPC worms.

Could be a heat problem as well. Check to make sure all the fans in the case are turning (CPU, Power, case, etc.) Also check for excessive dust buildup.
