my pc automatic shutdowns

December 26, 2013 at 09:28:37
Specs: Windows 7

my pc automatic shutdowns in a few minutes
sometimes it opens calculator , outlook, mediaplayer and my pin in the taskbar automatically.
and my monitor sounds weird .and can't access internet , my network connection is disabled.
I full scan it on avast but no virus detected but when i tried scanning it on malwarebytes it automatically shutdowns,and i also tried it on safe mode but still shutdowns my pc and opens the software... I tried doing system recovery but nothing change.....and my malwarebytes were corrupted. ive encountered the virus after i troubleshoot my taskbar because it wasnt transparent and there an error on it so i tried fixing it , and all i can remember is aero stuff and the themetool.exe thing. --sorry for my bad grammar.

You need to know if it's a desktop or laptop, the make/model, and/or the system specs. I can make a wild-azz guess though - the system is overheating. When's the last time you blew the dust out of it? Try disabling the auto-restart feature too.

As given, overheating is high on the list but malware is another possibility (despite Avast). They often prevent scans with MalwareBytes etc.

"my monitor sounds weird"
Not understood. Do you mean speakers built into the monitor?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Either it's overheating, you have one nasty virus (which would explain why Malwarebytes wouldn't run), or you hard drive is so messed up that you system is dead.

Get a professional to take a look at it; I think this is beyond our capabilities here.

Is this a laptop? If not, try connecting a different keyboard to it.

From this line in the op: sometimes it opens calculator , outlook, mediaplayer and my pin in the taskbar automatically.
Those, along with shutdown, are all special multimedia functions a lot of USB keyboards have these days. I'm not saying there isn't a virus; there probably is. I'm just not sure it's only a virus problem.

@riider , it is a Desktop pc,i ll post the spec when i get back from home, its not overheating , but it shutdowns in a formal way or in a basic way to turn off the pc .

@derek , it sounds like sparking when it start to disabled my network connection and opens the softwares -- i already checked the cable plugs and it is well plugged.

@Razor , ohh about that my keyboard also responses slow or should i say it doesnt work well , but before the problem started , it works well...

This sounds pretty bad. Are you sure your surge protector is good and still protecting against surges?

Assuming you still have MalwareBytes on your computer, try this:

Go to Program Files > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. There you will see the main program file which is "mbam.exe". Change this to iexplore.bat then make a new desktop shortcut to it (the old one will no longer work). Try running it now and if necessary from Safe Mode. It is designed to still work with this and many other changes.

If some malware or other is preventing MalwareBytes from running then it will not be looking for this renamed file. If you can run it then it would be worth seeing what it finds. Keep any log it produces in case we need it.

Best uninstall MWB then and get a new download. This is a safe one:

Use the green icon top right.

If it still won't play ball then do the suggested rename.

If sfc /scannow doesn't fix it, 3 to 1 says the sounds remain after the format, or come back the moment the drivers are installed.

Sfc is System File Checker.

This might help:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

To get to the Command Prompt (black box) first press the Windows key and R key together which will bring up the Run box. Then type in cmd.exe and hit Enter key which should bring up the DOS like black box.

In there you type sfc /scannow (note one space) then hit Enter key and wait for it to finish.
