Specs: Windows 7, I can't tell.
My computer keeps on randomly shutting down after I do things like watch a hulu video, or play a computer game. It works PERFECT for about 5 minutes, then it juust shuts down without warning. I recently got rid of a virus, and that is when the problem began.

I recall having a similar problem once before and it had to do with the drivers for my video card. If you started experiencing these problems following a recent update then that's your solution. Try backdating your video drivers a bit and see if that helps.

Since it is a laptop, my first guess would be that it's overheating. You could try blowing out the fans. If you take out the battery first it'll be lighter and easier to maneuver, and it'll make sure it's turned off. If you can, use something to stop the fan from from moving while you blow into the vent with canned air or an oil-less air compressor.

Depending on what CPU your laptop has, you may be able to use a program like CoreTemp to monitor the temperature of your CPU:

Using a program like Prime95, you can push your CPU to 100% for maximum heat. Note that you won't be able to use the computer while this is running:

I don't think it's overheating though.
Today:

10:00 I turned on the computer...
10:10 I start a video game.
10:30 it shuts down with no warning
10:36 I restart the computer and I launch the game again.
10:45 Shuts down again.
10:47 Start again
10:54 shuts down again...

Go to Control Panel, and find out Administrative Tool, there you look for SERVICES, and in the SERVICE, find out the REMOTE REGISTRY PROCEDURE, double click it, and select the RECOVERY tab, there you will see an option RESTART SERVICE, or SHUT DOWN, disable that option.
