I was just sitting at the computer doing some emails when all of a sudden the computer turned it's self off.Before when I have been sitting at my desk I get a message on the computer saying it is going to shut down but I move my mouse and my desktop re-appears.If I had not touched the mouse the computer would have shut down.Anyone any ideas a virus maybe.

Possibly overheating; refer to some of the entries here click here

or PSU could be failing

Have you checked the ventilation holes at the back and side of the PC to make sure that they are not blocked up by dust. Dust is the main culprit of the computer overheating, it might pay to check your cooling fans are all working too.
