Adobe products cause my computer to instantly shut off

  1. Let me start off by saying that I have been building computers for over 10 years, so my computer knowledge is significantly high. This is not a heating issue, I can replicate the problem while watching the temps and they are fine. This happens with both Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Air. Adobe Air is used in League of Legends, a game I play. Every once and a while, while fiddling with the UI in game, my computer will instantly turn off. No freezing, no BSOD, just off. I have swapped PSUs, GPU's, and HDD's. This problem also occurs when I try to drag one picture to another in Photoshop. I do not have this problem anywhere else but with Adobe. Any thoughts?

    How is your memory. Just went threw this with a laptop. Added more memory. Problem went away.

    That should be more then enough memory. I would rather think this would be a software problem then a hardware problem. But could be wrong. Do you have any other programs running in the back ground when this happens? Other then that I am about out of suggestion. I am sure someone here might have a good one.

    What about a malware problem? Have you tested the memory for errors?

    Checked memory for over 12 hours. It is fine. No malware or viruses.

    What program did you use to check for malware?
