You may have an infection.
If you (your work) are backed up, I would try reformatting the drive to start completely fresh.

Incidentally, while trying to get a customer's older HP functioning again and numerous tries to restore from the 8 CDs that came with it, I found defective files on two disks.
I ordered a new set; $80.
It had one bad CD.
After an angry (maybe threatening) phone call to India about the defective set, they shipped a new set; $22 (shipping)
It had TWO disks unreadable.
I finally put together a working set from the 24 CDs to finally get the restore to stick.
BTW, The disk verification was being done on my shop system, not the HP.
I no longer accept HP or Compaq anythings.

My laptop keeps shutting down

A little more information would help, does it get hot or is the fan doing overtime! Laptops are notorious for sucking in air to cool it as well as all manner of dust fluff and hair which block the air flow and cause over heat and consequently shuts itself down do avoid damage. Ckeck and clean air vents.

try this:
1. shut down your laptop
2. remove battery and unplug ac power
3. keep it that way for 2-3 minutes and then put the battery back in, plug the power cord and turn it on.

if you have no luck try doing a windows system restore and see if that helps. if not you should contact dell support or return for warranty.

Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop keeps shutting off for no reason.

I think your fan might be broken....if the fan doesn't cool the pc,the processor or the chipset will automatically shut down the pc to prevent burning hardware.Or your hard drive might keep crashing.Oh yeah and abstract from this i don't recommend ever using mcaffe

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this

Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.

Just check in the power options that anything is not set to shutdown if idle like the hard drive. it sounds really to be processor overheating problem, just check around the side and underside vents for any blockage. Does your fan appear to cut in at any point and stay on or not come on at all, as these things ay be a clue to the problem if it's the processor overheating and shutting down.

System unstable

This could be a couple of things, the shutdown will probably be because of the overheating, check for blockage around fan extraction area. The other could be that there is a virus or spyware running, taking over the processors work and causing a shut down or overheat error, check for both. The other could be a driver conflict, try doing a system restore to before the problem started.
