  1. Hello there. recently i just reformatted my computer because of a nasty virus. The computer ran perfectly fine before the virus but now ill be on my computer surfing the net, listening to music and it will randomly shut off. The wierd thing is if im playing World of Warcraft it will never shut down. I can even run 2 WoW accounts on my computer at once with no problems. What could be the deal that when my computer isnt working as hard it just shuts down ? my mind is boggled can anyone help?

    You play WoW too much :haha:

    Well do what Chuck said about giving us the computer specs, go to www.Majorgeeks.com and search Everest and get it from there because http://www.lavalys.com/ doesnt support the free edition no more because they are greedy
