my computer shuts down randomly at least once a day. sometimes it just goes into stand-by mode so i have to log back in. and also, my calculator application opens by itself, as well as my media-player and the "my-computer" box.

Very odd issues. Start with event logs.

Might also unplug network cable just to be sure someone hasn't hijacked your system.

Might have to sweep for spyware and adware and virus's.

Boot to a live cd and see if it works OK. Might help tell hardware from software.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
