    I have a Toshiba Satellite that keeps shutting down randomly. Mainly when we use it to stream to movies or TV shows to the TV set. I was originally thinking virus/malware but now I think it may be just overheating. I'm really not sure where to start with trouble shooting the reason other than check and clean cooling system. Could it have anything to do with the site I stream from? What to do?:confused:

    I updated display driver. Then tested it out on Netflix. Worked fine. When I try watching something on http://moonlightmedia.tv/ it shuts down in a few minutes. Is that a shady site? Should I be posting in malware removal?
