Hi can anyone give me an idea as to why when I do a deep scan on adaware it shuts my laptop down every time ? when I turn it back on it keeps shutting off again for several minutes then it goes ok! Windows xp pro sp2 installed avg antivirus, avg antispyware and windows fire wall
Thanks

Have a look at the air ducts.

Find something that sucks and something that blows and a clean paint brush. Then, without entering the laptop, get rid as much of the dust in the cooling system as you can. Then see what happens.
