Computer keeps shutting down/rebooting or giving me blue screen?
All of a sudden my computer has just started rebooting itself, or freezes or gives me the blue screen. I haven't installed anything, nor have I changed anything. I've run a complete virus scan, no problems. Done a disk check and cleaned all registry files, no problems there. The computer starts ok, works for up to 10 mins then does one of the 3 things above. I'm running vista ultimate 64bit, my system is a quad core 8gb ram. Can anyone help? Don't want to lose anything that's on my computer.

Ok, that depends on how long the computer will stay on. If it stays on for exactly three minutes, you have BugBear, a virus that will shutdown the computer every three minutes. You need to find instructions on the internet to get rid of it. If its not that, shutdown the computer RIGHT AWAY and take it to a hardware computer place. My computer acted like that for a while, and then stopped working. A little 3 cent piece of plastic had broke, and i had to buy a hole new computer.
