own a compaq vessario v4305.....

i have a-squared, windows defender, mcafee, lavasoft adware, and avg free editon installed on my comp. the laptop shuts down after about 1o mins whilst scanning...have i got too many anti this-and-that? or its running on electric and i have power settings so that the comp never shuts off whilst pluggedin

Mcaffee and avg, it is unwise to have 2 anti-virus's running as conflicts can and do occur, uninstall 1, I would suggest mcaffee and just run avg.

Is your Mcaffee a firewall? If so you may need to download a patch as my pc crashed and windows report adviced downloading the patch through the "report error" window.

I've come across this behaviour from AVG. It restarts the computer if it comes across a largish .exe file while scanning. Seems to have cured itself now.
