PC Goes Of For No Obvious Reason And Then..


E

El.Plates

I have Vista Home Premium which inadvertently switches itself off and I
have to go through about 7 or 8 manual boots under 'choose repair option'
which repairs a little, switches off, I reboot, it repairs a little further,
switches off and so on until I get to 'will start up at a point.
Any ideas as to why this maybe ? The PC has Norton 360 on it...
TIA

I'd take the Norton 360 off initially...
Probably by a fresh install of your OS,
and just start all over.

Back up all your valuable data to a CD,
data partition, or external source first.

Then try it for awhile.

Is it a laptop? Could be a heat issue,
but that wouldn't need "repairs" to the OS.

Repent! The end is near.... So, smoke 'em if you got 'em.

That last is the direct result of the hard shutdowns the computer itself
is doing.

It is a hardware problem. Once fixed, get rid of that crappy Norton. Use
AVG or AVAST on your system. They're free.
I always used AVG, Avast, and lastly Micorosoft Security Essentials. McAfee
and Norton were always horrible expensive resource hogs. I use Comcast
however and they have free Norton now. I just tried it experimentally and it
is a whole different animal than it once was. I love it. It does a whole lot
and is very light on resources. I really didn't expect to use in more than a
couple of days, but have had it for a few months now and it has had great
detection and has never bogged things down. Course right now I happen to be
on my Linux partition and am using no AV, but that's beside the point.
