    Can you tell what program is opening the window? does it look like a Messanger window? An Internet explorer window? Also, if you have google desktop installed, it might pop up with some news alerts.

Also, try using a bart pe disc with an antivirus/spyware program addon to remove them.

that may be easier since the virus won't start up.

You may have a voltage problem, but it seems more like you have your power-save settings saved wrong. Check those. You may also want to check your device manager to make sure things are malfunctioning causing your shutdowns.
