Re: desk to computer shut down problem
Go into safe mode and then go into MSCONFIG and click on the startup tab. You'll see a bunch of checkmarks in boxes of all the programs that are running. Disable all of them, and then restart the computer and let it go into windows normally. It it boots all the way normally then that means you had something running in the background that was causing windows to shut down and you'll have to figure out which program it was and uninstall it.

I'm assuming this is a Finder window. In Finder, press Apple-option-W just before you shut down the computer. This will close all Finder windows; they will should not open when you start up the computer unless they were open when you shut it down. If it's not a Finder window, you will have to deal with whatever application is being told to run at startup. Without knowing what it is, I don't have enough information to tell you more, other than to suggest you go to your User Accounts in System Preferences, click the Login Items tab and either check the Hide box for that application, or remove it from the Login Items list.
Run Malwarebytes again but before you do turn off system restore. There is probably a reboot hacktool in the restore volume. Windows will not allow Anti-virus programs to scan there by default so the only way to kill the hacktool is to turn of restore. The hacktool reinstalls the virus as soon as you reboot. So turn it off, run malwarebytes and another program called Cureit! http://www.freedrweb.com/cureit/?lng=en save to desktop (it's free too) when you run the program it doesn't install it runs a quick scan first then offers you a full scan after the quick scan. Also a very good program. Run them both. After you're done turn system restore back on and create a new restore point. Good luck

Hi, If the computer is hot near the electrical plug in the back of the computer then the power supply needs to be replaced. This will also cause overheating problems if the fan does not exhaust enough air. You should not run the computer in this condition because the power supply can short out and take other components with it. Also there is a risk that it will burn up. Power supplies are very inexpensive and can be changed by anyone with basic computer repair knowledge. Hank
Mostly this problem exists only when your computer is affected my virus. If the computer turns on and if you are able to get into the desktop screen and then if its shuts down, then its a virus. Try formatting your pc and install a fresh copy of a OS.
Or if the PC shuts down soon after you start the computer, its the hardware problem.Open the CPU case, remover the RAM and insert it again. try to clean the dust,
sounds like virus or spyware at first. get microsoft security essentials and scan you PC i bet it's riddled the PC should power off if you hold the power button in for 4-6 seconds, rather than use the switch at the wall
Constant rebooting of a computer can be cause by alot of reason the most common for this is due to oevrheating, to check if this is a overheating problem try to open the case of the tower and put a electric fan in front of the tower to coll it down then power ON thecomputer and if it booted up fine with a electric fan blowing on the tower we're sure that you need to add some colling device on the computer tower, But if still do the same thing the problem here is the power supply unit it needs a replacement already....
A quoted suggestion from my Mac Guru: "They need to turn off the Energy saver preferences for processor
cycling and hard drive spin down. They would actually be better off
turning them down anyway since the G5 duals run really hot and aren't
the most reliable model Apple ever shipped for motherboards failing."
As for the iMac 99, It would be more helpful to know what OS the unit is running. I remember hearing a story about a disgruntled employee putting the 'shut down app' in the start up items folder. This caused the Mac to start as normal and then shut down after the startup was complete. Try starting up the machine with the extensions off. 'Hold down the shift key at startup'
