Some options

You should not run a computer nowadays without an anti-virus application. Home users can download Grisoft's AVG Free anti-virus and anti-spyware applications from

Are the fans in your PC working properly? If the PC is new, a case fan is also recommended, in addition to the CPU fan. Otherwise the CPU and also the motherboard would overheat which can cause the PC to shut down automatically.

Can you try to boot into the Safe Mode by pressing F8 a few times during the startup sequence. Try to scan the hard drive for errors: go to Windows Explorer and right click the C: drive, select Properties, then Tools, Error Checking - Check Now... Select the option to Automatically fix file system errors. The second option, to scan for bad sectors and work around them, will take much longer to run but it is also useful. The PC will do the error checking after you restart.

And finally, is there enough free space in the C: drive? Right click the C: drive and select Properties and check that you have at least 5, rather 10, percent free space of the total disk capacity, for example on an 80GB (in practice 74GB) hard drive you should have at least 3GB free.
