Hi, My computer shuts down during idle. Before it would randomly shut down and geeksquad changed the graphic card. However the problem continues. The fan goes crazy, almost like it is handling too much, but I can be running one or no programs, even just idling! Can someone please help me? I saw notes on malware, I have a feeling that is my prob, but I need a "removing malware for dummies" step-by-step version. PLEASE HELP! I cant stand the way you are expected to throw computers out these days!

List v-card name. Cpu overheat or bad psu can cause system to restart randomly. First check cpu temp in bios.
