XP Keeps shutting down with Internet Explorer open

By gruple ·
When ever I am in internet explorer, after just a few minutes XP gives the error "Application is exiting" and the computer shuts off. Any ideas on what is causing this? Thanks for the help.

Its sounds to me like you may have the blaster virus on your pc, you will need to do the follow
download the following tool from another pc and save it on to disk

then download all your patches from the windows update site

This will solve the problem!!

Also to stop the machine from shutting down
open a command prompt and type:
SHUTDOWN -A
this shall stop the shutdown from taking place, but it only works when the window has appeared that tells you the machine is shutting down!
