    You may be a victum of spyware.SOmeone may be hacking in and conroling you computer for you.As well if you are on a network someone else may be messingyou up by mistake.

    The oply thing I know that would turn of you computer is ether spyware/Virus or may be you have gotten a windows update and if you did not click do not resstart my computer now it might have done it.As fare as the browser goes it is posible that there is some files on your PC that have been erased and it is causing it to mess up.I had that happen before where the browser kept closing.So you may want to make sure your operating system is installed right.try a non desructive restore or back up your important files and go through restore that should fix it.I would bet if it an't some kind of malware then you need to restore.If you need help on going through system restore then ask me.
