Computer started shutting down after watching youtube

Recommended Posts

A couple of days ago, I was watching videos on youtube. During one, the computer shutdown. From there, I would reboot, but every 15 minutes or so, the computer would shut down. I had this before and I just did a system restore, but this time the restore attempts were unsuccessful. So I started running Malewarebytes, but the computer would keep shutting down. Then I downloaded and ran AVG, but in safemode. In the midst of this, I found a thread on here about a similar problem last night, so I downloaded the recommended program FRST and ran the scan. 

These are the files. However, I do not know how to find the bad lines or create a fixlist.txt file as was suggested.

Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello and :welcome:


First of all, you have 3 antivirus products on your system.

Always have one (and no more than one!) AntiVirus program! In this case having more of them will not provide you with better protection - instead they may cause slowness, lock-ups and even mark another ones as harmful, leading to leave your system unstable and even damaged. Please choose only one from the listed below to stay with and uninstall the others:

  • avast Free Antivirus
  • Microsoft Security Essentials
  • AVG AntiVirus Free Edition

Uninstallation procedure:

  • Press the WindowsKey.png + R on your keyboard at the same time. Type appwiz.cpl and click OK.
  • Search for each uninstalled entry, right-click it and select Uninstall.

This should be done until any other steps will be taken.


Let me know when you finish with this procedure.

This is notebook, right? Let's check temperatures:

  • Please download HWMonitor and save it to your Desktop.


  • Unzip it and run the version compatible with your system architecture. If you are unsure which one you should run, run them one by one and one of them should work.
  • Make a picture of HWMonitor window and attach it in your next reply.

Here is the youtube picture and temps. I also decided to run Malwarebytes and check it. The core temps for 0 and 2 rose to 192 and 196, respectively while running Malwarebytes. I took a picture of that as well, but the computer shutdown and it appears that I lost it.

I cleaned out the dust. I ran Malwaebytes with the temp gauge. Max temps reached 159 and 165 for core 0 and 2, respectively. The scan completed with no issues. Temps seem to be ranging from 134-145 right now, post scan. So that does seem to be better. Thank you for your help.
