|Hi, I wonder if anyone can help? |
I am running Windows Vista on a Toshiba laptop that is about 2 years old and for the last couple of months it has been shutting down unexpectedly.
It doesn't seem to be an overheating problem as it sits on a cooler pad and the shutdowns don't seem to be related to anything particular that I am doing or how long it has been on for .......
The only thing that seemed relevant was that often if I was running an antimalware program that it would shutdown but I have posted logs on the Spywarewarrior forum and they have said that it is clean and suggested I try a more specialised forum as they think it is more likely to be a hardware problem.
I have recently switched from Norton 360 to AVG 2011 and can't get rid of all the Norton files even using their uninstall program but I don't think it's related to this as it has been happening for some weeks before the change.
I would be grateful for any ideas ..... I did look into taking it apart and checking the fans etc but would prefer not to if I can avoid it as it seems much more complicated than a desktop!!!
