if you want a movie, right away when you restart PC
does it cause the computer to shut down!?

Could be 'cos CPU is overheating.
Could be a virus, when running a program then the virus is triggered.

Download COMBOFIX and RUN it

Perefed in SafeMode with NETWORKING
since the program might need to get the latest updates!!
