Microsoft Windows vista home premium - 3...

Specs: Windows Vista, Core2Duo/3 GB
I'm experiencing unexpected shutdowns on my laptop loaded with Vista Home Premium. It doesn't happen.Whenever I keep my computer for downloads via the Torrent app it doesn't even last for an hour. It also happens when I go for a complete scan via the antivirus app. It also happens sometimes when I'm browsing. Sometimes it gets itself restarted and many a times, simply shutdowns itself .
This wasn't the case previously. My system had got slow due several unwanted apps; thats why I went for a complete system format & reinstallation of the OS. I used to use AVG antivirus previously. Now I've installed MS Security Essentials.
Also when I write something the cursor automatically moves up somewhere in the middle of the document.

I checked the event log. It shows this:-

I don't know what has gone wrong. Whether it is the antivirus or the torrent or the drivers installed, I don't know. But please help.

Torrents are usually illegal and can contain viruses. Get rid of any torrent programs for a first, then boot Windows into safe mode by pressing F8 before windows loads and then run a virus scan.
