Try starting up in Safe Mode, and run anti-virus as well as spyware applications.

You will find that the icons are big in safe mode because this mode is minimalist and the display resolution has deliberately been reset to the minimum that your display will give and doesn't use drivers.

how do you mean "it just shut down"? and what windows version is it and is it desk top or lap top?

also, what antivirus protection do you have on it , what other protection programs and are you on dial up or broad band?

Run sisoftware sandra light, get rid of "tips". Click tools tab>>>enviroment monitor>>will give you temps monitor; fan speeds and voltages. If heat is the problem then the case must be removed and also the dust.
