    I can recommend that you have the power supply tested or exchanged. Many PC's have failing PS's and cause the problems you are experincing. However, the previous answer about any messages is inportant and does the machine lock up all of a sudden?

    When your saying its turning off by its self is it giving you any type of a message.Such as a blue screen with numbers at the bottom?

First thing I would do with it shutting down fast is to make sure the cooling fans on the processor is dust free and that it is indeed running.Most computers will shut down if that fan is not running or its not running fast enough.You should blow out all the dust on the heat sink and all the fans with compressed air Staples sales this product and Walmart and many other stores.If this is not the problem it could be the power supply as mentioned above another thing it could be is check on your motherboard to make sure the capacitors are not bulging some companies have resorted to buying cheaper capacitors for there motherboard.If in fact you find a bulging capacitor you still may have the warranty from the company.If not you may just want to purchase a new motherboard.

You might try your anti virus program and run a full scan and try to find Trojans and Spyware. These can slow you right down. IMHO, and no disrespect to anyone for safety's sake I wouldn't mess with the Registry while the machine is unstable as this can lead to permanent damage. Proceed at your own risk and experience! Running a repair install is a great idea however, IMHO that is.

My pc.. desktop is very slow.. its a windows vista


You may want to look into upgrading your RAM if there is less than 2GB installed. This is a recommendation that I have found in working with several PC's running this Operating System. Also, you would want to run disk clean up and remove any temporary files that Windows finds. Deleting any other temporary or unused files from your PC on a regular basis should increase system performance. In addition, if these steps do not solve your problem, you may want to consider upgrading to a faster performance hard drive (preferably a SATA II with a 32MB cache). As a last resort, you may look at your CPU to see if there is an upgrade for it, as well. Keep in mind that Vista is a resource hog and can slow down a PC within just a short period of time.

Hello,

I guess that your pc is infected with potent antivirus, boot your computer in "safemode with network" and then scan you computer online. use this site: www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm

if this not solve the problems you need to reformat and reinstall the windows operating system.

may this help, melnavz
